New Owner from Wisconsin

Hi everyone!
After looking at many different brands of campers, we have chosen a 2013 Jay Feather 23M from Willie's RV in Bloomer, WI for our first camper trailer. Anyone else out there own one? We are buying it even though it has the smallest fresh water tank in it's class @ only 22.5 Gallons (even though they claim 28.5 with the water heater, no other manufacture does that). When we were at the dealer, I looked at the underside and there seems to be a good amount of room in the frame to hang another 20 Gallon fresh water tank. I'm wondering if anyone else has added another tank to their trailer? Any suggestions? Theres a lot of different tank brands out there.

Thanks! Can't wait for spring!!

Welcome to the forum too! We are state park campers, one of our favorites is Wissota Lake SP, not far from where you purchsed your camper. Have fun camping!

Thanks guys! Just last night we were looking into camping at Wissota the week after 4th of July. It looks like a nice campground!

We also have camped just north of Wissota at Brunett Island SP, smaller and less to do but still very nice. Willow River SP by Hudson is great, nice waterfall to hike to, and close to the Twin Cities if you want to do some shopping.

Welcome Caleb.. from a fellow Jay Feather owner we have a 228 , saw the 23M at the mall RV show and really liked it. Good luck with your mods, the 23M is brand new this year so I'd poke around the Ultra lite board and see if someone can give you some info you can work with, staying Ultralite might help with positioning in the frame. Hopefully somebody can advise you on your plan, lots of great folks here. I think your the only 23M owner so far, but once you start posting more show up. I started a 228 group just last year, looking for info, now it has 13 members...
