375BHFS On our way home

Hi Everyone,

We've been lurking around here for several months, have learned so much, and are on our way home with our new North Point 375BHFS so thought we should formally introduce ourselves.

I was a tent camper my whole life until a few years ago my husband talked me into buying a travel trailer. We bought an older 24' no slide TT because I wasn't sure I'd like it. My husband, three boys and I LOVED it and soon were spoiled with indoor plumbing and A/C. Fast forward a few years and two other trailers - a bigger TT we loved but hail took it out and a 5er we hated so here we are with this ginormous beast . This is our first Jayco and so far so good.

We picked it up yesterday from the dealer and spent the night in it last night at a campground across the road from the dealer. We found a few minor things that needed attention so took it back to the dealer this morning, they fixed the items and now we are headed for home (about 260 miles).

We are looking forward to many years and good times with this unit with my kids, my husband's kids and their spouses and the first grand baby born just this morning!

Well now that the 30+ mph crosswinds have went down, much better. It is not dog tracking anymore.

Congrats...
Your f350 looks like like its light on the front end like mine was until I put Timbrens on.
I could feel the steering was a little light, maybe why the wind was affecting your drive.
The Timbrens made a big difference.

Thank you for the information, I appreciate the input. We are new to a trailer this big. We debated back and forth about Timbrens vs air bags and went with air bags. My husband installed them right before picking up the camper. He increased the pressure a couple of times on the way home, but he thinks we need to go higher still. We are going camping in a couple of weeks and he is going to try higher/different pressures and see how it goes.
