Hi TwoClaws,

I am from S. Florida also (Ft. Lauderdale area).

Welcome to the forum.

We are currently fulltiming and knowo what you mean about 'too big' when going to all the Naitonal Parks.

We have been on the road since Feb 2010 and see lots of smaller campers and truck campers getting into and going to places our fifth wheel won't.

But since we live in ours fulltime we decided the size is best for us for our needs right now.

Good luck with your search and please keep us all informed!

Jo

Thank You Jo!

Appreciate the welcome. I find this web-site amazing. So much knowledge being shared. Hope your enjoying the full-time RVing. Several of our fellow workers at Yellowstone were full timers - some beautiful Class A's and some gorgeous fifth wheels. Got to love 'em but too big for me. Even though we were parked for 4 months the 2 months plus of pulling the 266 Sprindale became worry-some at times. Finding a gas station and which we could fit in. County road in Utah was not well posted. Went down a 20 mile tiny two lane mountainous road rather than taking a longer route. Got towards the bottom it size restrictions were posted. Had to turn around and pull up "hill" keeping my eye on the gas gauge. Thank the Lord we made it back to the time found the first gas station AND the tiny sign posting size restrictions. Unable to enter Zion and there were some other areas on our journey where SIZE became a sticky situation.
Yesterday drove 190 miles to examine the 199ML Passport. Had to do it just to know if it was what we could use. Long day but educational - found out that it's not our cup of tea! The couch is rather flimsy and 18" is not much of a slide out. Used Flyguy's (our moderator here) posting to check the trailers for exposed wood on the bottom of the verticle walls (see his posting in General Area of this sites menu). 2010 exposed wood and 2011 appears to have a complete enclosed wheel well - Saleman did not know nor the Florida rep he called and I talked to and today got call from Keystone Rep from Indiana - he did not know this. I'll close for now. Thanks again twoclaws
