Well, we took our trailer out for her first outing for halloween. We had a good time "camping" on a friends property in the woods near Huntsville Tx for a halloween party/ bonfire. We were able to plug in and had quite a few lookie loo's! Our bed is GREAT!! We slept like logs! kept the little elec. heater on low (600 watt setting) and it nearly baked us out, the low temp was only in the 50's/40's. We found it functional and fun! Over all it was a good first run!

What Gina said.

My first camping trail was at a friend's farm too. Great fun!

Plotting my next adventures...

I spent a cold November night at a truck stop in the Siskiyou Mountains on the way home from the guy I bought it from. Not quite a "first outing." More of a "let's get acquainted" trip together. Our next outing was at Christmas time when Lynne and I spent the night in my brother-in-law's driveway fifty miles from home on Christmas Eve. A few days later we were at a full-hookup RV park in Vancouver BC.

We got a lot of use out of our 5er those first months. :-) It was a lot of fun.

It looks like we are making our next trip over Thanksgiving... we plan to drive up to Dallas for a family get together, then maybe head down to a camp ground near Austin. It's fun to read about other people's first time out... thanks for sharing!
