New RV'er, New Member

Hello to all; I just joined the Jayco Owners forum today. I'm also new to RV'ing and my wife and I are anxiously awaiting spring of 2018 when we expect to take delivery of a custom ordered 2018 Eagle HT 24.5CKTS ordered thru Indiana RV Connection. We plan to tow with a new 2017 Ford F-350 Super Duty Super Cab equipped with 6.7L diesel, 4x4 Off Road, 11,500 GVWR, Tow Technology and Gooseneck/Fifth Wheel pkgs. It is a short box single rear wheel truck. I've had several Ford vans, this is my first pickup. I went with the heaviest duty truck that would fit in my garage because in the past I have had to pass on boats and other towables because I just didn't have enough truck to pull the loads. I'm a Ford Research and Engineering retiree, having worked for Climate Control Division for 27+ years, then with Visteon Climate Control for another 8 years. I started at Ford in 1972 and finally retired in 2008, so I guess I'm old too! I've had some 60's muscle cars, various sailboats and power boats and was a regular contributor on the Chris Craft Commanders website. While on that site I totally restore a 1965 Chris Craft 20' Sea Skiff, 1 of 80 fiberglass Sea Skiffs out of some 13,000 Sea Skiffs Chris Craft made, the rest were wood. Besides boating and camping I enjoy film photography and classic hi fi stuff. So that's a thumb-nail sketch of who I am, I look forward to meeting and talking to other more experienced RV'ers and Jayco owners.

Dave

Congratulations on the retirement, and the trailer, and the truck, and welcome to the forum (from a former resident of MI).
