New Member - Swift SLX 184BH

Just joined the forum and wanted to introduce myself....

I'm from Hillsborough, NJ. We upgraded last summer from a popup to a Swift SLX 184BH. I'm towing the toy with a 2003 Toyota Tundra V6 (5 Speed). We gave the trailer a great maiden voyage driving from NJ, camping in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Tennessee (3500+ miles). We are really loving the new TT and looking forward to learning new tips & tricks from the forum.

Hello and welcome. Now that the test run is over, what do you have planned for a 'real' trip?

iLLBRED, I'm sure that you are going to love your Swift SLX. I was in heaven on our long trip last summer with it after doing several long hauls with our previous Popup. It was sooo easy to setup and breakdown. The ability to leave our stuff in the trailer was so much easier than living out of the back of my pickup like with did with the popup.

We sleep 5 in it very comfortably. Last summer's trip involved a lot of moving as we only spent more than 1 night at 2 locations. I'm looking forward to our spring trip to the OBX when we will drive and setup camp in one place for the whole trip. We will definitely get to feel more at home with the trailer then.

I was amazed at how easy it was to winterize the trailer as it came with the freshwater by-pass kit. I had the whole thing done in less than 20 minutes!!!

I was able to get used to towing it rather easily after pulling the popup. It was a piece of cake to put into sites.

I really don't see us needing to upgrade from this trailer. It has everything that we want and meets our needs perfectly.

Good luck with your new toy.
