A little cold (+4) but I was camping Wednesday night. I'm Going to have to put a marine wood stove in my Egg if I continue to camp when it is this cold.
I'm looking at this one.

Kirkman, I love this idea but I can't figure out where you'd install this is a FGRV? We have a 16' Scamp and the only option I can think of is to remove the from couch and mount in the front window. Even then, the clearance requirements of 20" from the front/sides means location and heat output could be very problematic. What about you?

We're working on renovating our Scamp and dreaming of running away as soon as the weather breaks here in Kentucky. This is going to be sooo much fun.

If you use it with the shield he sells you don't need any clearance

I'm usually pretty excited about camping this time of year as we go to California for a couple months in the winter,,, but as most Canadians know our dollar is pretty bad against the US $ so. We'll be exploring beautiful BC with our boler as much as possible in '16,

Dying to get out camping! We sat down in the fall and decided where we wanted go this spring/summer/fall, but in the past week, kids activities have changed all of our plans (we have a lacrosse player who just made a national team) and so I've been spending this week looking at new adventures and getting reservations and marking dates for future reservations. It snowed yesterday (and today) so I went over to our Iggy to see if I needed to clear the roof and ended up just sitting inside for awhile, dreaming. I cannot WAIT to get out again!

There is this famous quotation: "Plans are worthless, planning is everything."
And you have such a good reason to change! Keep planning.

Not that I relish our campgrounds getting anymore crowded, but our tourism board says we residents are supposed to be encouraging Yankees (and Canadians too I suppose) to come down with their money to Florida. We actually just got back from a week of camping in a Florida SP and although it rained pretty good as couple of days (I felt sorry for the tenters) we had a great time.

Hazel, I get that feeling ever time I look out our dining room window as our Casita is in the back yard saying "Lets Go Already".

Its either that or its saying "get this damn snow off of me already!"

Somehow I think camping in Meadow Lake SK would be pretty cold this time of year!

Kermit is so cute looking out the window.
I can see our camper from our family room window-am so ready hook up and go!
Will be heading somewhere when our grandkids are on spring break.
This is when our whole family goes on a getaway.
