Hello from Upstate NY

Hi all, my husband and I put a deposit down on a brand new Jay Flight SLX 8 235rks on Sunday, and we pick it up this upcoming Saturday!

We currently own a Coleman pop up camper that we had a particularly bad camping experience in this past holiday weekend (specifically heat + thunderstorms + fireworks + leaving everything unzipped to cool it off + an epileptic dog = multiple grand mal seizures and a soaking wet camper inside from downpours), and decided we needed a travel trailer.

This will be my husband's first experience with a travel trailer (his family did camp in a pop up), but I have grown up RVing. In fact, when my parents went to a travel trailer from a pop up when I was a kid, they bought a Jayco . So it was only natural that we would also end up in a Jayco. I cannot wait to take it out for the first time, and many more times after that! I am also looking forward to the air conditioning, bathroom inside, staying dry in rain, and opportunities to bake while camping for family and friends!

Congrats on the new memory maker and welcome to JOF. While yours will surely be different than your folks Jayco (not necessarily less) your going to enjoy weekends surrounded by solid walls.
