As the kids
got into high school, their summer schedule cut back our camping
schedule. Not feeling we were using the 29' trailer we owned
at that time to its potential, we sold it. A year or so
later, in June 2002, we decided that tent camping wasn't cutting
it, so we bought a used motor home. It was this 1992
Coachmen, 23 1/2 foot Class C unit.
This unit gave us what we wanted at that point. Whereas
Marcia wouldn't drive while towing the big trailers, she would
pilot the motor home. It also gave the flexibility of taking
our motorcycles along with us. What we found, however, was
that it really didn't have the power we needed to do that.
owned this unit two seasons. Probably our biggest memories of this rig would be that we
owned it when we lost Marcia's dad. Marcia drove the motor
home and David drove their truck and fifth wheel up to Coles Creek
State Park on the St. Lawrence in August 2003. Genie loved
camping and he loved to watch the ships on the St. Lawrence.
It was his last camping trip.
