We are planning to start camping again after 30 years of doing other kinds of vacations now that we have the time to go wherever and whenever we want. THere are so many places to see and experience that the only way we thought we could do it right was by camping. When our children were small we had a great popup but now that we are older we want a camper that is much less rugged and has a lot more conveniences. So right now we are in the shopping for a trailer and a vehicle to tow it stage and would love to hear from anyone who is willing to give us tips and advise for doing this.
Thanks so much in advance,
Dave and Cathy from Delaware County, PA

Things to consider... the list is LOOOONG but here's a start.

- Decide on accomodations - fully independent or mostly convenient.
- Decide on what type: teardrop, popup or poptop, full box or hybrid (soft extendable sides), full box, full box with hard slides. Travel trailer or fifth wheel.
- Decide what to tow - small, medium, large and luxury. The smaller ones can go more places (not limited in length) but larger ones are more comfortable and can hold more people or cargo (toys). Small ones are also easier on the pocketbook, but large ones offer great convenience and storage.
- Prepare to duplicate your household. Purchase and store everything you can in the trailer to minimize packing and unpacking.
- Be prepared to learn more about problem solving and maintenance to save LOTS of money. It seems anything with the words RV or lightweight immediately jack up the price.
- Learn as much as you can before buying. You lessen your chances or buyer's remorse or the "wow, we could have had one of those".

Ask more questions and get as many answers as you can.
