Well met everybody. Glad to be here. Obviously new to the forum, so I wanted to introduce myself and enjoy all the information presented here.
I'm about to pull the trigger on a 2014 X17Z. We're moving up from a 2014 Jay Series 1207 popup. That lasted all of 2 camping trips before my wife and I decided it was both too much work and too cold !!! Also, I had tried to get around the whole no bathroom issue by using a Teepee Tent and a Portapotty. That didn't work out too good as it got cold.
So now I'm here; the deal is in writing I just need to show up on Saturday to sign everything over.
I'm towing with a 2012 Honda Ridgeline; from what I have read both online and in the owners manual I should be fine with it. My passengers are all light so I'm looking at 4750 max weight and 600 on the tongue - on paper I'm golden. I'm going to have the dealer hitch me up and go for a ride w/ me to make sure everything feels and acts the way it should I'm hoping against hope I don't need to fool around w/ a WDH; I already have a sway bar from the PUP.
I was using a BAL leveler to level the PUP, I'm going to probably grab something from these guys to handle leveling duty: http://www.fiammausa.com/products/RV...?fam=A6&page=1
. Probably the Magnums. I'm going to buy the little chock that connects to the levelers too. I already have a BAL Single Tire Locking Chock to use on the other side.
Please chime in with your thoughts !!! Also, aside from the Stinky Slinky, any other 'must have' items that I wouldn't have from my PUP? Probably order PUGS shortly after I arrive home w/ the new camper, assuming my Ridgeline works out with it on Saturday.
