I am pretty new to this website and have been researching RVs for about 13 months with my primary focus on FG rigs since about mid-summer. Because of the helpful folks on this forum, my DW and I attended our first rally
last weekend (Land Between the Lakes Fall
Rally in Dover, TN). We only spent one night, but got the chance to see our first FG rigs. We had a blast. Not only did we get to see rigs during the Open House, but we were invited to attend the potluck, mini-workshops, and evening campfires. I was told the best way to see FG rigs is to attend a rally. AGREED! In fact, my DW and I would love to go to Cherokee, but we have a senior in high school and I work in a university setting, so the middle of October is tough for us. Next year, as empty nesters, we plan to hit more rallies. If you can work it out, GO! At this point in our research phase, window shopping and actually getting in these rigs is important. However, what was most important for Laura and I were the friends that we made at the Rally as well as the wonderful expert resources on this forum. GO to Cherokee and report back regarding your thoughts and experiences!
