Lurked and finally introducing ourselves!

Good morning all! I've lurked around here, asked a few questions, and read a TON! We are longtime campers, I grew up camping with my parents from an infant on. I've been lucky enough to see just about every state east of the Mississippi River and quite a few out west. My wife isn't as traveled so we're on a mission to get her up to speed! I've tented it, had pop-ups, and several TT's. The last being a fully loaded 2015 32' Rockwood 4 slides platinum edition which was VERY high quality. We average 50 nights a year camping so we put ours to the test! To verify durability we take our 5 kids and usually their friends with us, so ours aren't babied...

Our 2017 3710fl is our first 5th wheel and first Keystone product. After a few outings in it we are impressed with the fit and finish as well as overall quality. I have to admit that we aren't "camping" anymore, and the wife and I refer to ourselves as "travelers" instead of campers because with this rig isn't actually camping.

We are prepping to retire in 10 years, 7 months, and a few days (not that we're counting) and taking advantage of the 30 and out plan. The wife and I will be young enough to still have plenty of outdoors adventures and truly enjoy this beautiful country of ours!

Thank you for welcoming us into your family, and I look forward to interacting with everyone!

Have a wonderful day! --Ryan

Well, you certainly have to be laid back taking five kids plus on camping adventures...so counting down to retiring should be a breeze. As long as you get out and enjoy, you will stay young. Here's to happy memories being made. John

Well, the kids are getting older and don't come as much, so it was time to move away from the bunkhouses. Thanks John!

As for the clowns, all I can guess is "monkey see, monkey do!" as long as the media feeds it!
