Bye Bye 206LTD

Wife just recently "got" retired from her job of 45 years. (Sorry - no retirement party, cake or anything for you. We have eliminated your job 6 months before you planned to retire.) Any way....have decided to pull the trigger and move from a pop-up to a hard sided camper. Have had pop-ups since 1984 and have loved them. Now, with our age, we have needs that a pop-up can't properly give us.

No land yacht or 400 foot long trailer. Just a nice, neat 21 footer that has all the basics we need and a blank canvas to customize as we see fit.

Married daughter started salivating when I told her of plan to update. Saw a free pop-up in her future. (Gave her our old 1990 Coleman when we bought the 206LTD since it had no trade in value). Hold on Honey...TANSTAAFL! Sorry. If you want a 2 year old pop-up your gonna have to pay a price for it. Have worked out an equitable deal with her. Everyone happy now.

Still staying in the FR family. Moving to a Coachmen unit.

Have enjoyed all the posts here in the pop-up forum. Have found many answers to questions and have offer a few too. Will come back and take a peek every now and then.

Time to go camping!!!!

If you buy a TT and expect to do all of the work yourself, you will b back for suggestions. I love my TT but I have learned so much here. The people here have helped out with several problems. Enjoy retirement, it is great.
