Hello from East Tennessee

We picked up our 2018 Coleman 1805RB from Camping World of Asheville last Wednesday and made our maiden voyage this past weekend. Everything worked great except one leaking valve stem. Some quality control issues, like most new RV's, but we love it so far.

So far it's been great. I use it primarily for work, so it's the perfect cross between towing ability and gas mileage 23-24mpg on the highway, with the camper it dives to around 12mpg.

Great, been trying to convince my misses that a 4x4 diesel would be perfect for her.

We love Boone too and always go to Mast General Store. We've never camped there, which campground you going to? Any you would recommend?

We stay at Grandfather Campground every time. It is right alongside the Watauga River. Stocked with trout and also has a few wild trout (can be kept). It's right across the street from the entrance to Seven Devils's, Easy to get to everything. Last time we were there, we went to Eustice's place (Mountain Men). It's filmed right there in Boone. We had a buggy ride tour with him of his place that they show on TV.
