Nice purchase man! When you have kids I think they can be a great investment. Vacations get expensive, being able to run out somewhere fun for a long weekend and having predictable expenses is awesome.

I was shocked how easy it was to tow; its 4500lbs dry and 26 foot long (29 tip to tail). With the brake controller bringing it back down is a breeze, the hitch likely had a big part to play in the stability as well.

Power wise it isnít anything to write home about, but it made it up the hill through downtown Geneva which I assumed would be super sketchy.

Yea, soft math with my daughter and wife, boarding the dogs, it adds up crazy fast. I also think about stuff like the TSA alone with a toddler and understand why people snap.......

My front lawn on that side of the driveway is just pine needles on old mulch. We are going to just widen out the driveway there, the property is a full acre.

I used to camp every weekend when I was a kid. Unfortunately camping isn't as cheap as one would think. Water/Electric sites are about $50 a night at most places. Still way cheaper than staying at a hotel or cabin.

Nice camper dasfinc. 4500# seems very reasonable for that size of camper. If you need any recommendations of places to visit let me know. I have been pretty much everywhere in IL or Wisconsin.

I know those hills well, go up/down them 100 times on the weekends for job#2.

So you moved? Maybe I missed the house purchase.

I really depends on how far you want to drive. I would say the State Parks offer a more scenic experience but you might give up some amenities. If you are looking for something close I like White Pines State Park in Oregon. Although I am not sure if they offer water/electric. If you can stomach the traffic and the people Wisconsin Dells is a great area to camp. No joke like over a dozen State Parks within a hours drive. OR if you like tourist shit you will find anything you want. One of the most memorable campgrounds I've been do was right on Lake Huron. It had a great view of the Mackinac Bridge. Looking at maps looks like it might have been Straits State Park.
