Newbie from Oakville Ontario Canada

Hey, just bought a 2012 Jayco flight Swift 198RD
This will be my first shot at RVing so I have a lot to learn.
Reading up on all the basics at the moment so I'll be ready for spring.
I really like the trailer, we had a list of all the things we wanted and of coarse desires and when I stumbled on this trailer it seamed to check most of the boxes, so we bought it.
It is in super shape and I can't wait to pick her up in the spring (free storage).
So Hi, please bare with me when I'm asking the basics.....thanks

Hi "Windstar" neighbor. Is the Windstar reference to the Ford or are you a sailor?
You got a little bit bigger (a lot) Jayco for your travels.
Do you intend on travelling with it or parking it in a park for the summer?
We are going to travel wide (hopefully) with it but next summer will be within Ontario to get accustomed to the whole experience.
Where did you purchase your trailer? I got mine at "Park Model Trailers" up highway 6 (Freelton).

John

Hi John
My nickname comes from Ford, as I work for Ford in Oakville, when I started it was the type of vehicle being built there.
I got my travel trailer(28RLS) from Sicard.
I have on order a brand new Ford F250 which is a step up from my F150, better be safe than sorry for the type of trailer I got.
