    Greetings,

    Glad to be here. Excited about all the future adventures our family will have in a camper. We have a large family 2 adults, 3 teenages, a toddler and a dog. Our initial plan was a travel trailer, but expense for a truck to pull it, initial cost, and storage - it just got a bit too overwhelming. When we thought about a PUP, Our daughter said it best - " Dad, its camping, it's supposed to be that way". So now in the market for a PUP. We plan on using our Nissan Quest to pull a Jayco 1206 or equivalent. I will be posting some questions in other forums, but would appreciate any comments.

    thanks and looking forward to getting to know some of you

    Welcome from Corpus! We just bought ours from South San Antonio. If you need any help searching, we just did that all over South Texas for the last month. Just shoot a PM to me if you need any help. I received all the help I could imagine here and more!

    Another welcome from SA! Glad to have you here. Our family is the same, but with one teen in college and working, it leaves us with two, plus dogs and now thinking of taking a cat camping, lol.

    Please visit the rally board. We have our second rally coming up Valentines and one in the works for spring break. Come visit the rally thread...great way to meet other puppers (our group is Texas Puppers, lol), have fun and share info and help, too [;)]

    BTW, we have an '88 Jayco Dove 6 and it pulls just find with our Subaru Forester.

    Welcome, sounds like you are approaching the decision soundly. PUP should be less strain on the QUEST and love your daughters enthusiasm! :)
