New WI 23B owners starting Thursday!

We have been looking for a trailer for over 3 years now and finally purchased a 23B. My wife and I grew-up camping and started tent camping while dating. We have a younger son and he is always excited to pack-up the car to get in a long weekend out of town. We grew tired of deflating air mattresses and lack of space/convenience. My parents bought a 24' jayco when I was younger so I am a little spoiled with trailer life. I can't wait for our first trip in a few weeks and more importantly towing a larger trailer for the first time. I look forward to sharing and learning with you all!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I will post a bunch of pics from our first outing and probably one from bringing her home the first day. I will be towing with a '08 Ford Sport Trac Ltd. V8 Can't wait to see how that goes. I think I need a few trips around the lot and I should be ok. Need to figure out how far to swing on turns - anyone have advice? I do plan on our first camp-out to be driveway camping to enjoy the trailer asap - plus load some gear, etc. We have to store ours due to subs. rest. - 2 days in the drive allowed.

Gotta love technology! Thanks Dmax! Maybe we can share favorite camp grounds? I think we are going to southern kettles for the first trip in a couple weeks.
