to the forum and feel free to ask questions of our members. We have many experienced and knowledgeable folks who are more than glad to help you out.

Don't forget to take a pre-delivery inspection checklist with you when you go to pick up your new unit. There is one available here on the forum for you to use. Go to the Keystone Question section and find the PDI sticky at the top of the list of threads.

Welcome Bucketman, I'm in south east, WI. Not retired yet but my boss tells everyone I am.

What part of WI are you in?

Bucketman, Welcome down to the ground and to the great countryside on the move. I reside about 400 miles straight south with my second home being 40-60 mile west of Rockford.
My plan is in about a month, visit Ashland (first Time without a clue) and Marinette Area. From my venture last year, I found the other people I visited with always had a suggestion for something in the direction I would be traveling. I just sorted out the event to my liking and was impressed.

Thumbs up

Essness, Been there a few times. OCB I have been to most places in Northern WI, but not there. Hope to make it a destination soon. WI has some of the most beautiful scenery of any state. We are heading for Northern Michigan in July, (Traverse City area) That may be our first adventure in the new trailer.
