New 2009 17C Exp-Port owner down in SE Texas

Just got a 2009 Jay Feather EXP-Port from a consignment lot in Houston,
Its like brand new condition, and we love it. At a bit over 2900 lbs dry its a breeze in our 1500 Silverado with a 5.3 and tow package. Wifes Lexus GX470 SUV pulls it good too, just would rather stick with the truck and not put the wear and tear on her "Baby". We have customized it with a pair of PUG's, cut reflextix for the bunk end windows, customized the interior with some basket style organizers for Bathroom and kitchen. Got a 19"LCD and devised a nice securing method for travel. Cleaned and applied a coat of Wax to exterior. One thing it didn't have is the Dinette Table which can be ordered for 188 shipped.. cut a piece of Plywood to use as the bed support if needed for now. Using a small fold table for Dinette.

Didn't realize how much initial $ it takes to stock and customize these baby's, but its all done. I guess it was no different when we got our 26' offshore Boat and customized it

Going on our first trip to the Hill Country this weekend , cant wait

Anyway greetings !!

Welcome to the forum Navydave. Good start on your mods, the Reflectix and Pugs are worth the effort when running the AC or furnace. Looks like one happy crew in pic #4.
