I have been a tenter for many many years, alot of it while motorcycle touring. I have always liked the idea of a small RV and even considered building my own teardrop but ruled that out as I'd like to be able to stand up to put my pants on, lol. Being able to make a meal in the rain is appealing aswell, eating a cold can of Chef Boy O Boy while huddled in a tent in a rain storm is no longer fun.
Plus we have a new addition to the family, a baby girl. This Saturday we are going to look at and probably purchase a 13' Ventura
