new member/jay feather ultra light 228 owner

new owner here. dont really see anyone else on here with our new camper. 2012 jay feather ultra light 228. just pulled it home last Friday, bout 100 miles. excited for spring. first and only snow we have seen this year came the next day!! lol we owned a 1994 pop up.....jayco 12kb for 6-7years and borrowed a 1999 starcraft pop up for the last 2-3 years. mom owned a 2005ish jayco pop up for 3-4 years. in laws have a 2007 jay feather 218. we mostly camp with them. we are hardcore Toyota and jayco. inlaws tow with a 2007 tacoma quad cab long bed 4wd. we tow with a 2006 sequoia. and I have a 1999 supercharged tacoma. lol our family get-togethers look like a dealerships parking lot. we work/have worked in the Toyota world.
there were no other brands that came to surface when looking for our tt. jayco was it. we looked at the others just enough to realize how light weight/well built jaycos really are. we love that they use real wood, make a lot of their own parts, and are a family company! among other reasons.
I'm glad this forum exists and am always looking around and learning from others.

Our TT is on a seasonal site so I don't tow with it. Regular MPG ranges thru the year from 14+/- in the winter to 17+/- in summer.

That's a real nice looking trailer... but what is all that white fluffy stuff you have all over it?
