Hello from a newbie in Nebraska


We took delivery of our White Hawk 27DSRL this last April.
Unfortunately, the weather this spring interfered with enjoyable camping,
but we decided to go all in.
We took it out to Los Angeles, via the Grand Canyon, for a leisurely visit
with our kids out there.
Thanks to a good TV and hitch (F150 and a ProPride), it was not as terrifying as I thought it might have been.
We know a whole heck of a lot more about trailering now!

Glad you had the opportunity to make the CA trip. That's a major haul.

My wife and I didn't our first big trip this past April, from Long Island, NY to Orlando, FL with stops in Virginia Beach,VA and Savannah, GA. Since then it's been local camping spots on Long Island but once you're set-up it doesn't much matter if you're 10 or 1000 miles away, it's camping .
