Closed deal on new 26bh

Getting back into camping after a few years, last trailer we had was a 1981 Coleman tent trailer. Wanted dedicated beds for two boys, wife & myself. Mid size tow vehicle so needed to stay under 5k lbs. Would have liked a slide but considering what we had before this is a huge improvement.

Hopefully be camping in a couple of weeks.

Congrats on the new 26BH and welcome to JOF! This is the same model we picked up back in November. Love it and can't wait for the weather to warm up to start using it.

I'm a firm believer that dollar for dollar, the 26BH offers the most bang for the buck of any camper on the market. My local dealer advertises them heavily at a special price and sells them by the hundreds each year. I might just be a bit biased in my opinion, though. Our first TT was a 2009 26BH. Congrats on the new camper and welcome to the JOF family.

Congrats! We love our 26bh. Have two boys as well (although they're small and share beds still.) Served us well on a 17 night trip last fall (second time using a camper ever in our lives, we like to jump in with both feet, apparently). It's been a great trailer for us so far and I think a great value as well!
