from a tent to a camper
Until last year we have always camped in tents. We are the modern tenters as my one friend called us. We take along the microwave, the portable fridge, the TV and DVD player, etc... Last June, we camped for my son's birthday, and it stormed, our campsite was flooded as was every other site in the campground because of how fast the rain was coming down. Our tent had a channel of water running through it, it was floating. Now we had camped in tents before in storms, and they always leaked to some extent, but never like that. I looked at my husband and calmly said, NEVER AGAIN! we are getting a travel trailer or we aren't going. After we got home, we started looking for a trailer. We were told the sister of our neighbors had a trailer they were looking to get rid so we inquired about it and were able to purchase a 30 foot travel trailer for a nominal price and although we have had to put a little work into it, we have been extremely happy with it.
