Default I've joined the club...

Thanks to Treeclimber I'm now the proud owner of what was his 240U Classic.

I started camping 11 years ago with an '83 24 ft. Sunline. It was a great camper, even if a little worn around the edges (and the middle) and really lite weight for an older camper, only 3300lbs. Lots of fun memories with the kids in that, mostly camping in the NC mountains.

A year and a half ago I sold the Sunline and bought a '93 C Class Damon Hornet. My wife wanted to go to the Grand Canyon, and I told her for a trip like that we needed something where one could eat, sleep, and bathe while the other drove, then switch. After 18 months and nearly 9,000 miles with that motorhome we had taken the kids to Niagara Falls, the Alamo, Carlsbad Caverns, the Grand Canyon, St. Augustine, and the Orange Bowl (to watch Clemson whup up on OU!).

With no more big trips planned and my oldest heading to college, I decided we needed to sell the C Class while the tires, generator, and engine were still in prime condition.

The next day my wife said we still need a camper. So, l started looking for something more efficient to pull than my old camper had been. Research led to Hi-Lo, and lurking on this site led me to Treeclimber.

I now own what must be one of the best maintained 2000 Hi-Los in the world. Thanks for that, Treeclimber!

I'll probably be checking this site from time to time figuring out how to keep this Hi-Lo in good shape.

Default Your Here!

Really glad to see you've joined the forum. And welcome to both of you and the kids.
Here on the forum, you'll find the answers to most anything Hi Lo. View the "how to" videos and read old posts. Like you, I searched everything of interest regarding Hi Los. Then I got in touch with Den2 through the moderators and found the 24' er. As DSO and I said, this unit never let us down, drew rave reviews, and lots of gawkers and waves, even thumbs up and pictures taking. As members here will tell you, Hi Los draw attention, from the panhandle to Savanna, and thru the southern Mountains. Even Ninety Six, SC.
I strongly feel you and yours will really enjoy the Hi Lo life!
Best of Luck,
Tree

The BIG disadvantage of a HiLo is that you have to keep the inside "neat". People will stop by and want a tour when you are out camping.

Have fun with your new toy!

Jack, you are right about having the keep the camper clean - because we often have people stop by, asking about our Hi-Lo, which usually involves a quick tour!
