    Good afternoon everyone!

    We just bought our first camper, a used 1987 Coleman Laramie, from a co-worker of mine. It's still in pretty decent shape, just a little wear and tear. We are a family of 5; our 3 daughters are 9 (twins) and 20 months. This is a new endeavor to us, so are open to any advice and guidance as we get started. Thanks!

    Eric

    Welcome from Midway USA.

    Go enjoy yourselves and get those kids out of the house and expose them to the great outdoors. It's a wonderful place. One tip, don't buy a bunch of stuff you think you're going to need. Go camping a few times and make a list of thing you you find you need. About the least fun thing I know of is packing up a bunch of stuff that you didn't use or didn't need when you're heading home.
