Hi all

Well after reading this group for some time, I've finally found time to join all of you and start posting.

A little bio: after growing up in the woods of northern Ontario, I moved to the city and have been camping exactly once since then. But that one time was enough to hook the kids. We decided to mix the comforts of home with the outdoors and jumped right into a hybrid. The trouble was finding a trailer to sleep 7 that could be pulled by a minivan.
Thank you Jayco.

We bought our 17z last fall at an RV show and it's been in the driveway ever since. The weather is killing our excitement to get the maiden voyage in, but we'll get there.

We've since upgraded the tv to an Escalade to be on the safe side. A lot of that decision was based on posts we read here, so thank you everyone for such a helpful forum.
Hope to see you out there.

Gord and Guylaine

Glad you bought the same unit we're wanting to purchase. Also glad to hear that you bought with minivan intentions, but also glad that you ended up with a larger vehicle. Welcome, and I'm looking forward to hearing about your new X17Z!
