Additional comments
here please:

We have been so impressed with the Patriot family
since the first time we approached them asking for information.  Their attention to detail is reflected in
the final product which, in our opinion, is world class.

The usability of the camper would suit anybody who
enjoys touring.  It is also versatile
enough that if wanting to stay for extended periods in one spot, everything
that you would need is on board.

We especially like the fact that the awning is
permanently attached, is easy to set up and pack away and does not need guy
ropes.

An on-board gas hot water system is standard
fitment.  Hot water on demand for
showering or washing up.

We don’t use the slide on family room now as both of
our kids are in swags which can be carried conveniently on the camper.
