Smile New Jayco 17z Owner today possibly!

Its 6 a.m. and I cant sleep any longer excited about possibly picking up our new Jayco 17z today. Pulling it back home with 2004 nissan frontier. Having RV place install weight dist. hitch with sway control and hook up trailer brakes on truck. We live in central wis. (colby) and am purchasing near green bay wis. This is our first travel trailer. We did have a 1985 chevy class c 24' camper last year and the prior 4 yrs but sold it. Looking forward to this type of camping now. Class C had its advantages and its pains in the you know what.... (needs shocks, tires, oil changes, plugs, brakes... and on and on). So Hello All!

Your life will be much easier with the 17Z. It's a great little unit and smaller can be better in many ways. We spent 12 years with motorhomes and yes they had advantages and disadvantages.

Keep us posted on your new camper. some pictures of ours can be found in my album on this site.
