We will travel from our home in Western Massachusetts to pick up our new scamp 13 in July. We pulled a rented teardrop for a week, but other than that we haven't traveled with a trailer. We have done car/tent camping. Quite a few folks talk about taking small trips before trying a big on, but it would be a 1500 mile trip just to drive straight home! We are thinking about exploring some of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Upper Michigan, and Ontario on a more leisurely trip back. What do you think about doing that (in July)? Is that a good time to travel that route? HOw important is it to have some shakedown outings first?
