First Trip Out - Ever

We had our maiden voyage in our new Greyhawk this week. We visited a campground that was all of 8 miles from home. We were thinking that if disaster struck, or, more likely we got a case of the dumbs, we would be close to home. Everything went great. Sometimes it took a couple of tries, but eventually we got it.
The campsite is in Clemmons, North Carolina. It is called Tanglewood. It is a very clean place. Great dog park, horse rentals, small lake, (pond), very nice camp hosts. We recommend it highly.
I think we are hooked.

Wishing you many years of fun and good luck. Rosie and I got our new greyhawk last august & pretty much did what you did, we just hacked around 20 miles away the first time, went a bit further each time, and now are crazy wild about driving 8 hours to Cape cod in May!
It's a great Product, and you will love it

Hi everyone! Im a newbie with T.T and recently purchased a 2013 324BTS and was wondering the major differences between T.T and 5ers...I know the 5ers are easier to back up and tow in general but I like the idea of still being able to use my truck bed for packing up gear etc and of course the T.T are considerably less expensive.

Yep - once the seal is broken there's no turning back. Sounds like a great summer ahead

You hit most of the highlights right there. I miss my truck bed for storage but do have additional storage underneath the 5ver. it is the larger items that I tend to want to carry that I have a problem with. I finally figured out if it is too big to get in there, I don't really need it! lol
