Howdy!

Greetings from Phoenix, Arizona where my wife and I have purchased our first travel trailer. I have used this site several times through the research and purchase process to gather information, so - Thank you all!
I grew up with a Jayco tent trailer and have missed camping and RV'ing for many years. I am looking forward to taking delivery next weekend and getting some time in it.
We bought a 287BHBE for size, weight and features. I am concerned about not going with the 28BHBE since it has the larger water supply etc. but I couldn't afford the weight. I have a 2007 F150 super crew 4x4 so towing capacity is limited but the best feature of that truck is that it is paid for. I don't want a new truck payment just to pull a bigger trailer!
So, new to RV'ing (or at least owning one) and new to the forums. I look forward to picking y'all's brains.

Thanks for all the welcomes!
maromeo - glad to know there are some Phoenicians aboard. Redhorse - I did not go to the track this weekend - first year in many that we didn't go.

I am like a kid the week before Christmas waiting to take delivery next Saturday.

Leftturninalq, Did you make your purchase at Little Dealer? That is where we purchased our last 2 TT. Enjoy your new toy. You will love it. Sat. seems so far away but it will be here soon. We had to tow our first TT home right at 5:00 rush hour traffic on a Friday. Talk about white knuckle towing. Lol

Maromeo - We did visit Little Dealer a while back but didn't buy from them, we went to Worldwide in Mesa.
