New member - hello all

So after years of talking a about it, the DW and I finally decided to buy our first travel trailer. We both love to camp, and the dealer recently offered us a deal we couldn't refuse. This information available here is extensive, and helped us with the purchase, and to avoid any of those hidden "gotchas" that seem always to come up. Thanks all...

We are planning our first trip in two weeks, and we can't wait to take our maiden trip with the kiddos.

We almost bought a 26BH I think it's a great lightweight trailer that gives you a lot of features without the heavy weight. Enjoy!

Welcome Mikey from another Texan. I lived in the Austin/Hill Country in the 80's and wish I had bought my Jayco back then because there are abundant locations to go camping there, and Inks Lake is one of those great places. Have fun.
