Have gone back to the Dark Side

After selling our Scamp 19 last week we purchased a Coachman 24.7 5er with one slide. Was a great Scamp Camper and ended up selling for a good price. After spending two weeks in October the climbing up and down to the bed for my wife really messed her hip up. After we got home my wife confessed that she just couldn't do the climbing without pain. So, after quickly selling ours we found a used 2004 in great shape. Sold the Colorado and purchased another Chevrolet 2500 HD. With the help of a friend we installed a new 15K Reese Slider. Reservations were premaid for Monday at Grayson Highlands in Virginia. So, sold Scamp, bought Coachman, sold Colorado, bought 2500, installed a hitch. I really need a camping trip to relax. I have enjoyed the talks and friendships made. I will always have a fondness for the eggs but most importantly is to continue enjoying camping and making great memories. Hope to see you eggers at a campground in the future. Enjoy life and camping. Ted

Hey Ted. Have to admit those big 5ers are roomy.

Stick around. You have some valued egg/rv/towing experience that folks appreciate.

Smile Fiberglass vs Stick

We have observed people climbing up several stairs to enter their stick built rigs. One reason we will stay with our one step fiberglass.

Ted,
Best regards with your new venture. You've been around long enough to know the benefits and limitations of the FG genre. In the words of John Wayne, we (I can only speak for my wife and me, not the whole forum) respect your decision and wish you all the best. Happy trails!

Best of luck. Without an egg you'll be hard to spot so if you see our Trillium in the OBX, do stop and say hello. Writing from Ocracoke Happy travels, Raz

I will stick around. Enjoy the people here and helping anyone in need. Our Coachman is a 25' with one slide so no climbing up and down to get in and out of bed. We also plan to do some camp hosting next year at Ocracoke NC if all plans out. I will keep my eye out for all you eg gets.
