You will note the Tranquil setting in the first picture attached with our new 2011 Coachmen trailer purchased May of this year from Harvey RVs.
This is the sixth trip out this season with no real incidents.
I labeled this a "tranquil setting" because we are preparing to have some family over for a cook out. No Big deal, we have done this before. Our RV friends are camping with us and the family is due in any minute. Our friends always have the camera ready to capture any significant happenings;You will note the next picture is of me after falling off the back of the picnic table seat with a plate full of food ending up on my chest and stomach. One of my daughters is there to rescue me and I am feeling my age, with questions being asked of me what happened? Were you dizzy? Did someone push you? No, not that dramatic, I had not sat a picnic table much this summer (why do that when you have nice comfortable RV with A/C, so I forgot the depth of the seat or lack there of...
The moral of the story---- Never sit at picnic tables again or measure first!!!!
I am still a happy camper and very glad to have a new RV that we really enjoy....
We purchased this 37 ft. Kountry Aire from Harvey RV in the Fall of 2008. It was delivered and placed on a waterfront site at the Pushaw Lake Campground just before the campground closed for the winter. In the Spring of 2009 we added some personal effects and have spent the last two summers "roughing it" in luxury.
This is the nicest "camper" we have owned and we have had several, starting with a tent, then a tent camper, then a 12 ft., then a 16 ft, then a 32 ft park model, then a 31 ft class "c" motor-home, and then a 35 ft park model and lastly this absolutely luxurious Kountry Aire. We do not intend to "trailer" this one. It is as nice a "camp" as you can find and we are very pleased with it. We are also very impressed with the after sale service the folks at Harvey RV provide and we have found your service department to be "second to none".
Thanks for everything.

2010 - JOHN & BOBBIE ALLEN'S 1ST SUMMER WITH A 5TH WHEEL!
We purchased our Sandpiper 5th wheel in May of 2010 & have had the most fun we have had in such a long time!
The first trip we took was a wilderness camping experience at Scraggly Lake in Aroostook County. Using a generator for lights, no water or sewer hook-ups. It turned out to be very windy and chilly that weekend, but we survived!! The grandchildren Travis and Cooper fished with my uncle Cedric Knights, John and my future son in law Todd Peterson. We took their yellow lab with us and had a great time.
Our next trip was to Duck Puddle Campground in Nobleboro. John forgot to put the tailgate down, and ended up digging a large scratch in the tailgate & damaged the electrical box for the hitch...ooops! We met some very nice people who were seasonal campers and one who was a professional trucker who backed the camper down over an embankment into the slot assigned to us since John was having such a HARD TIME! We had everything repaired on our way back. While at Duck Puddle our grandchildren from Damariscotta; Hunter & Kayleigh came for supper with us at the camper just before their school concert. The following night we went to Hunter's little league game. IT SURE IS GREAT TO HAVE THE CAMPER AND SAVE ON HOTEL COSTS!! Also, it is so helpful to be able to load up your summer clothes and everyday items so they are always with you when you need them!! NO LIVING OUT OF SUITCASES FOR US AGAIN!!!! YAY!!!!
Our next trip was to Katahdin Shadows Campground in Medway. All of the people there are friendly and very helpful with any questions or help you may need. We enjoyed it so much we went back again for another week!
Lake Pemaquid Campground was the next trip to see our grandchildren in Damariscotta. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves fishing, swimming, dancing, making new friends & playing with old friends. This campground is very dedicated to families having fun together. Rick Charette singing with the kids, karaoke, and kids dance, pool, hay rides, and much more! We plan to return next year! We then went to Sunset Point with our daughter, grandson Travis, and their dog, our grandchildren Hunter & Kayleigh all in the camper. It was a wonderful trip!
We were there for 4 nights and then returned to Katahdin Shadows for the next two weeks. The first week was for the Shriner's NASCAR weekend. They have fundraisers all year for the Shriner's at the campground, but during this particular week on the weekend, there was a poker run, pancake breakfast, remote control car race with different age groups participating, hay rides, the Shriners with their NASCAR unit, silent auction as well as open auction on NASCAR memorabilia, collection of can tabs, and bottle returns. On Saturday night the NASCAR Race was projected on to a large screen for us to watch.
VERY GOOD TIMES WERE HAD! WE CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEAR TO BE HERE TO START AGAIN!!!
Bobbie and John Allen
