Greetings from Southern California
For the last 2.5 years I have been camping all across the country in the back of my GMC pickup truck with a Leer topper. Before that it was car camping with all my gear and a tent. June 1st I made the big move and purchased a Class B RV (Ford Transit 350 - 22' L). Since it already had all the bulky stuff built in like the stove, cooler, toilet, and awning - basically all I had to load in was my clothes, some plates and cups, a few misc. items, food, pots and pans, pet supplies, and I was good to go. I was amazed at how much space there was. I have drove the RV over 9000 miles already and been some pretty awesome places . People come up to my van all the time and ask how do you like the Coachmen Crossfit Class B RV? and does it bother me being in what they consider such a confined living space? I have to laugh because compared to what I started with this Van is a 5 star hotel on wheels. I will still get out my tent and camp with my friends in our local Angeles National Forest campgrounds but road trips will never be the same again.
