It's official! In the short month I've owned our first TT, I've spent several hours fixing running lights, replacing toilet, replacing water heater, and replacing waste valves on black/grey water tanks (not leaking a even a drop now). I've also worked on some cosmetic things like making extension legs for the front rock guard so it will prop up nicely, repaired the porch light, made short wooden step (so my 1yo won't have as far to climb to get in and out , put up rails on the bunks for the 4 and 6 yo and also replaced slide for the screen door and added a lock so that the kids will stand a little less chance of falling out!
Shew. That was a lot to type! Anyway, I'm so excited to be taking my family on our first family camping trip this friday. I've dreamed of someday owning a camper since I was just a kid when I played in my Grandma's camper.She never took me camping with her
My wife isn't the outdoors type but enjoys spending family time together and knows that camping would be a great family experience so she is in! We are going about 45 minutes away to a local campground that has a waterfall, a creek, river, and pool of course. We've already tried things out by camping in the yard last weekend and all went well and the kids loved it! Cannot wait to get there in the wilderness and set up camp! As most of you have said on here, kids grow up fast and don't want to go camping anymore so I was very determined to get a camper soon so that we can enjoy our young kids out in nature! Will report back after our trip!

Great fun. Actually I thought the thread was going to be about the First Family going on a camping trip.

Even though our own children have grown up, and live with there wives and children, we still take those grand kids camping with us whenever we can,( it all depends upon their school and social schedule.) We just returned last week with 4 of those grand kids for a brief camping outing, as our oldest grand daughter could only get off work for 3 days. She is 22, and still insists on going with us, So lasting memories are still there.
Good luck on your travels.

Great to hear, and you can't find a better way to make lasting memories with your family. I'm now in my late 50s and still remember all the fond memories from when I was little and my parents took me camping on the weekends.

Enjoy your weekend and please let us know how it goes.

Good for you! I hope this is the first of many wonderful memories for your family. Probably a good idea to camp 45 min from home, since the wife isn't much for camping. If she really hates it, she can always do day trips and go home at night. But I bet she will enjoy being out there(as long as it isn't tooooo rustic!)

I'm sure the first family probably has never been on a camping trip...
