2008 was our last year with our 2 person tent. And good riddance! I am 6 feet tall, and could not have my legs straight when laying down. Our dog seemed to take the most space. But anyway, we spent a grand total of 8 nights in our tent last year. We should have double that in our 5er once the first trip is done! I work 15 days on (24hr on call) then 6 days off, so we should be able to head out fairly regularly all season. Sure looking forward to it!

We decided that once we got married, we wanted to have something for us to do together in the summer months. We like heading down to the mountains and getting away from it all, so this is what we came up with. It was a toss up between the Seville and a Toy Hauler, but this just worked better for us all around. Plan on seeing more than just the mountains though. We are going to go througha 8 State tripthis spring before the snow melts here. That should give us a pretty good feel for the new unit. We are reading as much as we can to prepare for this!

I think that you'll find the trailer a lot more comfortable than the tent.

I spent 32 nights in the campground.That is the fewest since we got our first TT 11 years ago. Also about a dozen nights of backyard camping during the summer when it was too hot in the house. Best thing I ever did was add the 30 amp service to plug in at home. Can run the AC in the trailer and sleep out there when the house is too warm. This year with the remodel of the house we are doing, we will probably do more backyard camping than in the CG.

We only managed 18 last year, but that was up from 12 the summer before. With the girls in school, our season really only lasts 3 months - June, July, Aug. We get out on the occasional weekend in May, Sept and Oct, but usually only a 2 night stay. Hope to do more this year.

With the boy in school and DW's work schedule, they don't get out as much as I. I get a 5 day weekend every 3 weeks and I will leave on thursday morning or afternoon and come home on monday afternoon. DW will show up where I'm at on either Friday night or Saturday afternoon.

we *spent 224 nights. *We went to Scotts Valley CA in the winter and then spent 2 months in Alaska. * Had a really great time. *If any of you are thinking of going to Alaska by all means GO. *Even though diesel was at times up to $6 per gallon it was worth every penny. *I want to go again.
