Our New Camper
Our old pickup camper was starting to have mechanical and structural problems and we are less agile than we used
to be (important when you are camping with two large dogs that take up most of the floor space. So we decided to
get rid of it and get a replacement. Given the floor space constraints we decided to get a medium size motor home.
After a bit of shopping around we found one that we liked, a 2015 Sunseeker 2900. It just under 30 feet long and has
no slideouts which means it is lighter and we don’t have to worry about slideout problems. To help us get used to it

wind blown trees.
That evening we went out to dinner in Yachats
and enjoyed a good dinner and a great sunset.
