Hi,

We are new to our J-Feather 25Z, but have been RV-ing for the past 4 years in a 91 Toyota Winnebago Warrior. The Toy house was great, but we wanted a little more room and something that we could spend several months at a time in. Just the two of us so we didn't want to sleep a bunch of people, rather we wanted a nice galley and plenty of storage and elbow room. We also like to camp in state parks so wanted to stay under 30 foot overall length. The 25Z seemed to fit those requirements well.

Our first trip in the 25Z was to Charleston SC in April, so we got to try out everything including the furnace. We found it to tow really well behind our F-150 and even when passed by big trucks there was very little sway. Next week we are heading to Myaka River for several days and looking forward to being able to take the canoe along as we could never do that with the Toy house.

So how do you take the canoe.. do you strap it on the trailer?

By the way.. the kitchen in the 25Z is awesome!

The canoe goes on a rack on the truck.
