    Hello All - Super happy to have a reason to be posting here!

    Just a traditional backpacker and tent guy who never once splurged on a decent ground pad. Things changed after meeting a special woman who became my wife and promptly delivered two beautiful girls. Tenting it was still fun, but we realized more time was being allocated to answering late night "can we have hot chocolate " requests than just sitting by the fire enjoying our family. So after almost a year of lurking on this board indulging in excellent advice (thank you to all!), we purchased a 2015 Rockwood Freedom 232XRT, adding a huge level of convenience to our family outdoor adventures.

    Way more trailer than we were after, but needed the open space in the front for bikes/wood/storage and the deal was impossible to pass up. Unit had been used three times with one owner and priced at less than half of what he paid at dealer. Manuals were still in the unused fridge, outside BBQ sealed in box and shower/toilet equally fresh and waiting for a christening. Hope this does not come off as pompous. Sharing the details for inspiration to anyone looking to purchase. Lots of frustrating days and effort for sure, but in the end, it really paid off.

    Took the PUP to an authorized Forest River dealer here in San Diego for a full safety inspection and it passed "like new". Very pleased.

    And now, totally overwhelmed learning the ropes! So off to the forums with my questions.
