Hello from Arizona

Newbie here with a Jayco 195.
Performed a 3 day shakedown trip this weekend and found everything working as described.
Great time and already planning the next trip. I've learned a lot on the site and is a wealth of information!

Thanks all

Welcome from a fellow 195RB owner. It sounds like you are off to a good start! Having family in the Phoenix area we use ours for regular trips to the southwest. It works well for us so hopefully it does for you too.

We lived in the Phoenix area back in the 60s-70s and did all kinds of tent camping all over the high country. Loved to go up the Apache trail and get back off the roads... My working days always brought me back to this area and I always managed to rent a JEEP or TRUCK when there so i could run up into the high country on the weekends...

Waking up in the mornings in the SEDONA Red Rock country sure is pretty with the sun hitting the red rocks...

We camped down in John Wayne country some too below the town of Maricopa...

Everyone liked to camp on the creeks that run off of the high country in hopes of finding some gold haha... This one family we went with alot had a couple of jars full with gold flecks etc...

We still try to make to the Flagstaff area every now and then and there are so many places up there to camp out in you won't want to leave... One of my favorite areas was the WUPATKI Natl monument area where a bunch of Indian ruin are still there. One was pretty high up and going there at dusk you look to the East and see the Painted Desert colors... You could also hear kids playing and people talking but no one visible around you for miles...

Camping around the canyons is priceless...
