RE: First trip with my first RV

Hi, We are big fans of the Florida State Park campgrounds. Whenever we are heading to the Keys we always start at Anastasia State Park in St Augustine. Beautiful campground and beautiful beach.

RE: looking for service center in Massachusetts (or Connecticut)

Hi, We bought our 2007 FunFinder at Campers Inn in Kingston NH. They have also serviced it for us over the years and we are very happy with the customer service there. It is on Rt 125 in NH not too far over the border from Haverhill MA.

RE: The scammers will try anything....

Hi, I got the IRS one this past year. I knew it was a scam right away. Another time I was "phished" by a fake PayPal email. I knew that was fake because of the spelling mistakes! A few years ago I went to work and coworker asked me if I had been in Scotland over the weekend??????? Huh???? Turns out the email was sent to a bunch of people on my contacts list saying I was in Scotland for the weekend and lost my purse with money ID and passport in it. I would be contacted again with further info????? HUH???? As much as I want to see Scotland one day I can hardly afford to zip over on a 6 hours flight for the weekend:) The problem with that one ,though, was it did cause some difficulties with my email address but got it straightened out. This past year we have been getting calls from some energy company. My husband always answers it and asked them to take us off their list. I pick up and press answer and then immediately hang up. We were on the don't call list so I am not sure why we keep getting this call just about everyday.

RE: How did you get started?

I had always wanted to see the country in a car. My husband had been talking about camping/rving for years. I was not a camper and was not sure I would like it. My idea was to stay in resorts:) We decided to try seeing the country in an Rv. So we bought a 21ft FunFinder in 2007. The first trip was one night about 75 miles from home. In just that one night I realized that this was going to be FUN! Now I love it. We have traveled out to the west 4 times and have seen such beautiful and interesting places. We have driven down the eastern seaboard 7 or eight times now and again have seen beautiful and interesting places. We have also traveled all over New England returning many times to some of our favorite campgrounds. Although there is still so much more to see I feel so lucky to be able to have had these experiences. My only regret is waiting so long and not doing this when my daughters were kids. We have always been travelers but now we have our own little "house" on wheels which I love.

RE: Looking for TT under 30 feet with 60x80 queen

Hello, We have a 2007 21ft FunFinder which has a full size 60x80 island queen. It was one of our top priorities when we decided to try the Rv lifestyle. Marianne

RE: Cruiser RV/Fun Finder info

Hello, In 2006 we decided we wanted to see the country in 2007. I did a lot of research using the criteria we set for ourself i.e.: 60x80 island queen bed, no OSB, no slide out, and of course light enough for us to tow with 2008 Tundra. I found the Funfinder online and it seemed like it fit all our needs. We went to look at one and we both felt "at home" as soon as we stepped in. We bought a 2007 21ft trailer. We have had minor issues with it but nothing that could not be fixed. Now we pull it with a 2010 Tundra and have towed it all over the country and into lower parts of Canada. We have gone out west 4 times from Grand Canyon to Glacier NP and all over the Rockies. We have been down the eastern seaboard/Appalachian Mt to Keys 4 times and we are leaving for our 5th trip to the Keys tomorrow for 3 weeks of travel. Its also been all over New England for weekend or 3-4 day trips.It has certainly served us well. We have probably put at least 35-40 thousand miles on it. We go to RV shows and talk about getting something bigger and newer but neither one of us wants to get rid of it. Its our first trailer and first time camping anywhere and we have created sooooooooooo many happy travel memories with it. I hope that you enjoy yours as much as we love ours. I call it "our little FunFinder". Happy travels Marianne

RE: wall separated from floor?

Thank you all for such quick replys. My husband brought it to Campers Inn early this morning and they told him it is an easy fix and could be done right then. So he is waiting there and will bring it home today and we can repack and be on the road tomorrow . Yeah! i don't know yet what caused it but will post it when I find out. Marianne

wall separated from floor?

Hello, We own a 2007 Funfinder that we bought new in 2006. We have taken it all over the country. 4 trips to the west 4 trips to the south and many many trips around the NE area. We have had some minor and not so minor issues over the years but all were resolved some while on the road but most at the place we bought it Campers Inn in Kingston NH.We have always taken care of any issues immediately and my husband would always insist on taking it to Campers Inn to be winterized and de-winterized every year. And at the same time had any minor issues looked at. This week was the first time he finally did it himself. We love our camper and as of right now have no real desire to buy another one. Our 4 week trip to the Keys in February with 7 nights at Long Key State Park in Florida was a no go as camper and truck was under 10 ft of snow for about a month. I lucked out getting reservations for the last week in April in Bahia Honda State Park due to a cancelation. As I was packing things this morning I looked down into the storage areas under the bench seats and was shocked to see the driveway through a 1" by 3ft gap between the wall and the floor. We are bringing it to Campers Inn tomorrow to have them look at it but it looks like this trip might be a no go also. Not the worst thing in the world and we can deal with it. I came here to find out if this has ever happened to anyone here...the wall pulling away from the floor and leaving a gap to the outside. Is this serious structural damage? The only thing we can think it might be is that over the years the bench on one side loosened up over the years and finally all the screws came completely out of the wall. We had it fixed in November. This was going to be our first trip for this year so it was today that I found it. Has anyone else had this issue? Was it able to be repaired or did you have to get rid of it and buy a new one? Campers Inn told us today that they are booked solid for the next 2 weeks. Sorry for the long story. I did do a search her and on FunFinder Forum but could find anything about this situation. We just had to get a new washing machine, a new garbage disposal and me new glasses this week! Thank You Marianne

RE: Bicycles-recommendations?

:)Hello, I have had different bikes since I was a kid. As an adult I bought a few from different stores that were around at the time like a Walmart. I bought a bike from a bike shop based on what it looked like. Then 13 years ago for my 50th birthday my husband David said he wanted to take me to a really good bike store and buy me a new bike. A year or so before I had rented a bike up in Bar Harbor ME. I loved it and made sure I wrote down the brand, which I had never heard of, for when I would buy a new bike. It was a Specialized and was the most comfortable bike I had ever ridden. So 13 years ago we are at a bike shop that ran the gamut from inexpensive to thousands of dollars expensive. The person who waited on me was so helpful and patient. I test rode a few bikes that were matched to my needs height size. What a difference. I had the name of the Specialized and tested that one. I was sold. It cost 500.00 at the time but I am still riding it. Its the BEST bike I have ever had. We have taken our bikes all over the county and we ride bike paths and safe side street, along beach, in the woods and my Specialized is still going strong. I have certainly gotten my moneys worth...or Davids money as it was a gift in the last 13 years.I recommend looking at Specialized.

RE: Cape Cod

Hi, We have either stayed at Atlantic Oaks for its easy access to bike trail or at Sweetwater Forest for its great sites when we go to the Cape. No pool but both really nice places to stay.

RE: Favorite Camping Location

We have been to many of the places mentioned here. We have traveled from east to west 4 times, up north and around NE many times and down the eastern seaboard via the Appalachians 3 times. We have stayed at so many beautiful campgrounds. We especially love the National Parks and the Florida state parks. But my all time favorite will always be Lake Forest RV Resort in East Wakefield NH on the pristine Great East Lake and within drivable distance of the NH White MTs. We have stayed there so many times since we started in 2007 that it feels like home.

RE: Campground near Norfolk

Hi, My all time favorite campground is First Landing in Virginia Beach. Nothing like camping in the dunes:) Its a bit of a ride to Norfolk but not bad. It would be closer to Norfolk than staying at one of the campgrounds closer to downtown VB. You would also have to drive to downtown VB where the boardwalk is. If you like to bike the VB boardwalk is awesome. If you have time the botanical gardens in Norfolk are just beautiful. We have also done the boat tour of the aircraft carriers and the land tour although no one is allow to get off the bus. Another wonderful visit was to the Chrysler Museum. We wandered around for hours. We have also stayed in the national park in Assateauge. No hookups but worth staying at. We did have ponies wander through our site at night..saw evidence in the morning and saw them on the roadside and around the campground at peoples sites during the day. Another beautiful national park. Good luck in your search.

RE: Bahia Honda April 4th-10th (ish)

Hello, Don't give up hope. We have stayed at Bahia Honda, John Pennycamp, Curry Hammock and Long Key over the years. Many of those times I was only able to get reservations by checking and checking 5 or 6 times a day until I found a cancelation. And this was for the summertime. In October we were able to get a site at Long Key for the first time. We liked it so much we wanted to go back this February. Of course it was booked solid. I would see one or two night cancellations December or January. Nothing for February. Then one night about three weeks ago I went on to check for one last time for the day at about 10:00 pm. Was I ever shocked to see 14 nights in a row available. I immediately booked the first 7 nights. The next day the last 7 were long gone also. We love staying at Anastasia SP on our way to the Keys. Again nothing that was suitable for us. Either very short site even though we are only 21ft or tents sites only. And then OMG!!! I went on to check and there was a cancelation for a site that we would fit into. Booked it immediately for 4 nights. And the most amazing thing was we had one night we need to book between Anastasia and Long Key. I just couldn't believe it when I went on John Pennycamp one night and there 2 nights available one being the one night we needed!!!!!! I am retired (as of June 2014) so I do have a lot of time to check over and over. But I have been able to get sites in the Keys SP by just diligently checking. I had read about doing this here on the forum a few years back and it was a great suggestion that has worked well for me. Good luck in your search. The state parks in Florida are our favorite places to stay there.
