New to camping

Hi.... I'm Bill. I am a new member and a new owner of a 1976 Beachcomber. I am completely new to the camping world and eager to see and hear ideas. My camper is in original shape and I look forward to updating it's look.

welcome Bill, Loads of things can be done but most important is to get out and use it. To much work and no play can be tiresome. See ya on the HAPPY TRAILS someday.

Bill, welcome. Would love to see pics of your trailer. Do you have any specific questions? I bet you would get plenty of answers and opinions.

Happy Trails.

Hi, Bill, I was literally new to camping three years ago when I bought a Casita 17’ and began full-timing. The biggest mistake I believe I made was to zoom across country. I should have spent a week at each stop to learn how to camp, how to cook, and how to stock and arrange stuff. I wish I had practiced hitching and unhitching, backing up, and the hundred other things unique to camping. By hurrying, I made camping a chore, when it’s now blissful. Have fun! Go camping.

Hi, Bill, welcome!

I agree, get out there and camp! Each trip you'll come back with new ideas and must-dos...nothing like the actual thing to show you what you most want!

Congrats on your trailer and wishing you all the


Semper ubi sub ubi.
