Hello

Hello folks. We are in the process of ordering our first Pinnacle. Our TV is a 2012 Dodge 3500 Dually 6.7 Cummins. I retire in 8 months and my wife is a nurse. She's a little younger than I, so she will continue to work. As our plan is to sell out here in NC and for her to do some travel nursing contracts which will take us to different parts of the country. We both love to travel, so this is a win win situation for us. Im not ashamed to say I haven't done any camping, although my wife has. I have done some towing though, so driving a truck/trailer doesn't bother me. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome, my wife and me started out in the same way. Massive amount of info to absorb that I didn't find in my owner's manual, but was answered by the kind people found here.

Enjoying the TT experiennce, I'm sure you will as well.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum and the world of RV'ing Beatcop! We ordered our tt also. It seemed like a long wait, but it was worth it
