New to Forums

Due to medical problems We sold our pop up and purchased a 2016 Coleman Expedition CTS 16 FB at camping world of Dothan, Al..
I have been camping most of my life, in fact my first one was a Sears One Wheel pop up. I have had class A, B, C's as well as Pop up's. Years ago I also worked in two different RV shops in Ocala, Fl,
I was a long distance backpacker and canoe camper. I still canoe camp just not as often as I used to and due to back and knee problems I gave up on the Backpacking.
We have reservations the middle of next month at 3 Rivers SP near Sneeds Fl. This will be our first trip out with the new TT. I am busy "making it our own" and should have it all completed by then. Glad to be aboard the site.

Welcome to the forum.

You've pretty much covered it all then, only thing I didn't see was Mt Everest.

Whoohoo! another compact trailer owner! And a Coleman at that!

Welcome to the forums. I have the same model and have done a few mods on mine, with quite a few more planned. I am heading out this weekend for an off grid camping trip with me and the dog.

Welcome.............Glad you found us. Looks like you sure aren't a RV newbie. Your next one needs to be a 5th wheel then you'll have all the bases covered.

I had a 5th wheel at one time and finally got rid of it, I also had several class c's, a couple of class A's , a 25' pull behind, a hybrid and several pop ups. But I really have no choice now and will stay with the new TT due to health and age.
