New member and first time TT owner

Hi everyone,

We are a family of four with 5 and 7 year old boys and three dogs. We just picked up a 2010 Jay Feather EXP 213 last week. My TV is a 1999 Ford Expedition XLT 5.4L with 3.73 diff and tow package. Our dealer was great to work with and set us up with an Equil-i-zer hitch. The whole family is very excited to try out our new toy. My parents took us all over the country growing up and am excited to start making the same kind of memories with my boys. This will be the wife's first experience with TT camping, but she is excited to get started. We have our first shake down cruise the first weekend in May at a local county park 10-15 minutes away. I thought that would be a great place to start to work out all of the bugs and go through the motions of setting up the camper for the first time in the field. I'll let you know how it goes.

Jason

Welcome to the forum Jason and congrats on your 2010 Jay Feather EXP 213. Good idea on the shake down cruise at a park close to home.
