Hello from Bremerton Wa

Hello everyone,

New to the board and camping trailers, we just purchased on clearence a 2011 Jayco 17Z. I hope the priced was good at 14,999. Little bit nervous as we have only used tents in the past and the only thing I have really towed before is a horse trailer. Anyway hello and Im off to search the forums and find some tips.

Jon

Welcome to the forum Trailers are much better than tents in our part of the country.

Hello Jon and welcome to JOF. Many of us started out in tents. Hope you enjoy your time in your new 17Z. Keep in touch with us here on the forum often.

Welcome to the forum. We also started with tents and I had only towed boats and utility trailers. Towing that 17Z will be a piece of cake.

Welcome, Jon.

Be sure to check out Rasar State Park, on HWY 20, just west of Concrete. It's a real gem.

Welcome to the forum, jtcrash. We live in MN but soon will begin living part time in Tacoma where our daughter and her family live. We can't wait to bring the Jayco out to WA to explore WA, OR and CA.
