New from British Columbia

Let me start by saying I never wanted a TT. My wife has been wanting one for years. Early this year something clicked and I became TT crazy. Luckily we didn't purchase the first ( new ) one we looked at. After looking and learning all year, I was set on a Jayco then later, on a new 184BH. Then this fall we stumbled across a great deal on a Used, single owner 2008 197 in Washington State. I love it. I haven't had a chance to use it yet and just put it away for the winter. I'm still TT crazy, reading everything I can and looking forward to using it come spring.

Welcome to JOF. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being TT crazy....I am, and a lot of us here are, and proud of it.

I have been camping all my life and been through tents, pup-ups, TT's and back lol. Just recently bought a 2007 165 Sport. Like you, has to service it and put it in storage before I could use it this year. Got a good deal at the end of the season, so looking forward to Spring. Welcome to the forum.
Reading a lot of the posts here will educate even the expereinced camper, so enjoy the read over th winter months.
Kind regards,
Doug

Are you in Chilliwack? That mountain shot looks familiar to me.
