We made up our mind we had to sell our truck and camper,
age has snuck up on us so quick, 84 and 79 and all the other
things that come along with it, but we can live on our memories
a long time I hope, we enjoyed dry camping in Cades Cove campground
and Elkmont in TN the most. Listed truck and camper both on Facebook
Marketplace and it sold the same day, I was kind of hoping no one
wanted it, we still go once a year to Smokies renting a cabin with
family but it not like real camping, I still enjoy keeping up with
posting here and on GoSmokies forums----I just need to vent a little!!
Jerry and Faye, Unfortunately time doesn’t stand still and we will all be in the same boat one day. So sorry you had to make that decision but glad you had good fortune selling it quickly. We down sized several years ago to a smaller 5er because I just didn’t feel comfortable pulling that big camper. Look back on the many memories. That’s something we can all do even though it’s not the same. I hope you will stay on the forum and share your wealth of knowledge with others. I wish you both health and happiness for years to come.

Woody having dealt with this personally - my parents - it is indeed a sad day but we will all get there some day. They did choose to buy a trailer on a small lot and instead of pulling the camper to Texas each fall/winter they just drove down.
Just had a family event over the weekend and we all set around remembering our favorite camping stories/trips.
I wish you all the best and please feel free to "vent " anytime.

Sorry to hear you had to sell your rig...I just turned 72 last month and am looking at facing the same decision you just had to make not too many years from now...I think after it gets to hard to pull the rig around I will entertain a seasonal spot at a nice campground, as some other members have posted...As others here have also said, I hope you stay around on this forum, your Knowledge is always welcome...
