Newbie Looking....

Hi All. My name is Minya (like mine ya). I live in the panhande of Florida right north of Destin. I already see a familiar face here-wahoonc (Aaron) from our pop up camper board (SEPUC). I tool around Florida, most of the time, with just two of my kids-the third and the husband stay home (not much into camping). Last trip out, I popped down about an hour behind schedule and thought how nice it'd be to be able to just lift the jacks and head home!

My parents have a 2000 Excella and I'm inclined to start my search for one now, too. I am looking at the oldies (but goodies) of the 70's. I intend to wait, no matter how long that may be, to find the "right" AS for me. My ideal would be one with twin beds in the mid cabin with a couch up front/bath in rear. That way, I know that the three of us that go all the time will have adequate sleeping quarters. And I don't think I'd like to pull more than anything over 25'. We have a Suburban 1500-so I need to watch the weight of the heavier AS's.

Anyway, that's me-hello! I'm in no rush, as I love my pop up and the whole camping experience. I feel it's just time to start looking.

Welcome aboard, 5G's. There are a couple of members in you area (Shalimar). I've seen a couple of nice vintage models down there. Susan has family in the area, so we visit often. Drive around Shalimar and look under the big pine trees, you'll spot a couple of 'em. The folks here on the forum will help just about anyway they can. You might look thru the classifieds section. There's always something for sale.

Good luck.
