New Bird



There’s a new bird in town! While we were waiting for the parts to repair our 5th Avenue trailer, Appleton Camping made us an offer that we could not refuse and we ended up trading it in for a brand new 2006 Cardinal model 34TS fifth wheel. We left Appleton on our first trip with our new home on Tuesday July 11 and headed for the Whispering Pines summer reunion in Xenia, Ohio. On the way we stopped for two nights in South Bend, Indiana and visited our friends Lee & Luella Chizum. They live only about 15 miles from Forest River Inc. where the Cardinal is made so on Wednesday afternoon we drove over for a factory tour. We had an over two hour personal tour with a factory rep. and were very impressed with the quality of construction.
Wednesday evening we visited with friends Huston & Carolyn Mitchell who also live in South Bend and then bright and early Thursday morning we continued on to the reunion in Xenia, Ohio. We love our new “bird” and, knock on wood, have had no problems

Love your new trailer, Larry & Teddy! It sounds wonderful! Enjoy!
Also loved the moth picture! I've never seen one before - I have several pictures of the Hawk (or Hummingbird) Moth that we have here - they are neat - and also colorful. Anyway - cool looking moth!
