    Greetings from CT! We got our new PUP end of season last summer and just got back from our east coast trip. Never had a camper of any kind before - always been on ground until now.

    Over 2600 miles total r/t in our new 2017 Rockwood 2318G. This was only our second time out so we were a little nervous going that distance! Our 'test' run was a 70 mile r/t in CT so towing down to Florida was a little nerve wracking.

    But happy to say it was a great trip, no major issues towing or with the PUP, and our 3 kids didn't kill each other (although got close on a 15 hour leg).

    Maybe it's early in the season on the east coast for pups, but we didn't see ANY on the road from Connecticut to Florida and back, with the exception of a old one that had no wheels and was towed on a trailer.

    Once we got to Ft. Wilderness at Disney, it was like a popup convention in our loop which was nice. Although I think many of them were rentals that Disney provides. Still nice to see.

    See you on the road and remember to follow the lines going south!

    Rob

    Welcome, to the forums from N/W Fl Panhandle glad you had a great adventure to the Sunshine state. I personally like the State parks, cheaper and a lot more quiet especially during the mid week. Sounds like you are enjoying the PUP and are more than ready for the long trip. God Luck and Happy Camping

    no matter the season -traveling along the east coast, I don't see alot of popups on the road. We see mostly travel trailers and 5th wheels. And this time of year - the popups are in hibernation.
    Sounds like you had a grand time - we have not made it to Florida yet with either the popup when we had that nor with the hybrid we now have. Our priority trips were Yellowstone and Grand Canyon - these are now checked off and Acadia National Park may be next on our list. Sometime we will get to Florida LOL.
