Glad you enjoyed your first trip. If husband cant go on the next trip dont worry about it you will be fine! I often camp with a group of 6-7 trailers all towed by women who have logged a lot of miles on their own and I cant think of any problems any of them have ever had as a result. If you find yourself in a situation that you need a bit more strength to correct/fix something and your on your own I have found there is always someone close by in the campgroup willing to help you.

Re the need for pull-through - just keep trying :-) Hint put your hand on the bottom of the steering wheel and move it in the direction you want the trailer to go and do it slowly.

Way to go, Stacy! Bet hubby enjoyed himself too.

I am a single senior and bought my first FG-egg 1998, a 13' Trillium after years of camping with a tent, alone. Now I take it to Florida for a month every winter.

I know your kids are going to love camping with the little camper, and the memories they will make are priceless.

Be sure to take your camera wherever you go. Any pics from your first wkd?

Ron, I've never been to those places so can you describe them and what you like about them? Seney Twp park, is that right in Seney? I get back to Michigan almost every summer and it's nice to hear about new spots to explore.

Thanks for the recommendations! We're hoping to make it up by Petosky in the spring, and if all goes well then maybe the U.P. later in the summer.

Since we are camping with little ones (my youngest is 2) it was a good thing that our first trip was rainy. We had a campsite that backed up to a beautiful river with a gorgeous view - but next time I will ask for something farther away from the water for safety's sake.

Sorry Noreen...can you believe I forgot the camera? I think I might need to keep a disposable one in the car for next summer's trips!
