New trailer, new member, hello!

Hello everyone,

The wife and I are first time trailer owners. We aren't exactly 100% owners just yet, but we put a deposit down on a 2015 Jay Feather X213 (below) this past weekend, the deal should be done in the next few weeks. Really excited. Looking forward to participating in the community and getting to know everyone. I think forums like these are invaluable and I'm looking forward to learning all I can, and obviously looking forward to doing some traveling!

Nice to meet you guys!

Welcome. My first travel trailer trip began in Chicago(Maywood) in 1963. Wonderful memories. My sister and her husband had bought their first travel trailer, a 1963 Holiday Rambler I do believe. Had the overhead bunk and the dinette. I was between my junior and senior year and they both taught school. They offered to take me camping for the summer with them, in exchange for babysitting a 3, 4, and 5 year old. I will never forget that trip as it was my first time out of Florida. Overnighted to Chicago on the Silver Meteor train run. We left through the locks in Michigan, up and into Canada, the Prince Edward Islands, Nova Scotia, and Maine back down. First lobster fest, on the wharf in Maine. Just a whole lot of first for me and I have been a camper ever since. You will make a world of memories as well. Congrats on the purchase!
