Hi Everyone, we have long been a reader of the forum and have enjoyed all your comments and posts.

This is our rig at Stone Mountain campground during the first night of our fall trip. Our truck is a GMC 1500 4X4 with helwig springs and rancho 9000 shocks, otherwise stock, and our camper is a Northstar TC800 with a few interior modifications.

This pic is in the Smokey Mountain National forest in the Cataloochee Campground. We enjoyed some fall colors, although we were alittle late for the change of season colors with the leaves beginning to drop.

Nice photos! I've been all over the Smokies but somehow not Cataloochie yet. And you've got a real clean looking rig!

Great pics and trip report. Thanks for taking time to share.

I've been in that campsite at Stone Mtn with a 35' fifth wheel. It was a very tight fit.

Glad to see they finally fixed the bridge. When I was there two of the supports were just dangling from flood damage.

Good trip report. It's always nice to see how others solve the "which TC to buy" problem. Your is a good example of form-follows-function: thinking small and light: less is more.
Many happy nights in the box and days out of the box to you.
regards, as always, jefe
