Hi My husband and I are from NC this is our second camper. Our first was a 1997 nomad, we bought Feb. 2010 to see if we would like camping with our boys. My husband who wasn't sure he would like it, out of the blue decided to upgrade to our new to us 2008 Hornet 31RLDS. It is more roomy than our other camper. We Love It. I had camped with my parents when I was younger and loved it, My husband caught the bug after our second trip. I love reading the forums you guys give some good advise. My dad helps us a lot with things but he is old school camping and finds it funny that I love to peruse the camping store catalog. LOL . I will be looking forward to reading all the wonderful things you all have to say about camping.
