    We have a 24 foot TT. But I'm also set up for a 5th wheel. We just go to private parks for weekend get aways

    Someday I'd love to have a fifth wheel, but that will likely be after the kids are all growed up. We tent camp at least a couple times per year. There are plenty of places to go in Washington. My wife's planning to take the kids a few times this summer, but we just load up the bed of the truck and take off.

    Going on a forth season with this Rockwood Roo 21SS Hybrid.


    Very easy to setup, and very spacious for the wife and I, with our three yorkies.

    Already have 4 sites reserved this season in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.

    Mostly long weekends, but the family gathering is at Higgins Lake for a week.

    That's one of those newfangled, spiffy pop-up campers with the slide-outs, isn't it? I just found out those existed yesterday. They look pretty neat. But, I'm still gonna stick with my 32 foot Jayco Eagle conventional camper. :glasses:

    I have a tent that sets up in the bed that we use for weekend campin:

    Of course I'm lookin into a pop up trailer later on. Need room for a few rug rats as the tent only sleeps two comfortably! We have a few spots in the mountains I like hitting up, but I'm also lookin into new spots this year! Will definitely take photo's when we go!

    Yup, The beds fold down and the back side slides out, so all of the floor space is usable.

    It has as much room, or more, than a 30ft. conventional camper.

    Very comfy...

    I sold my camper to build revenue to start a business venture a couple of years ago. Now, with 3 small kids, it isn't as easy to go camping as it once was. I have been thinking (a LOT) about building an "Expedition Trailer". That seems like it would be a BLAST!

    Bought my truck with the intention of getting a camper this spring. My truck had been special ordered by the previous owner with everything heavy duty for towing -- which I'm sure they did. The way the economy looks I am a bit too hesitant to spend the money now. Still have my tents though...
