We are a family of 5 with three teenage girls living in Southern California. We have been camping since before the kids were born (all my life actually) and my wife decided it was time to get off the hard ground. We found a new Jayco 1208, and are excited to go beach camping in Carpinteria, CA coming up soon. Already planning on several long weekends and then a long trip to Crater Lake, Or. Been reading the forums in the background, and I really appreciate all the great information I have found. Thanks to everyone!
