Greetings! We just bought a Flight XLS 154BH from a dealer in Southern NJ and are picking it up on Saturday. I cant wait!
Excited and nervous at the same time. Its my first travel trailer and I've been watching videos on Youtube to learn about the tanks and maintenance.

We cant wait to customize it. In fact, our guest room is filled with stuff! Mattress pads, pillows, kitchen supplies, new Keruig mini coffee maker
I had and old 15" flat screen which I am going to use. Cant decide if I am going to attach it to the wall, or just store it when we are on the road.
MY mind is going to mile a minute and I cant wait to have the thing in my driveway!

Glad to be here and looking forward to being a regular on this forum.

Welcome and congrats on the new trailer. Be sure and secure the tv while traveling, don't want to open the door on arrival and find the tv has been sliding around. Don't ask me how i know!!!! Lol

Tell me about it. I went to Amazon and ordered a DVR/Bluray player with WiFi so if Wifi is available we can watch Netflix or whatever. Then I realized we might not always have WiFi and being a geek I need my toys, so I bought a Netzero 4G hotspot so we can connect the DVR, Tablets, laptops, etc. .

Hello, from Bend, OR. Our new 2013 154BH has been stored since January. Central Oregon is a high desert so we're waiting for some thaw to pick it up and start the test runs. Glacier Natl Park trip in late June/early July.
We also picked up a small tv. I thought originally I'd attach it to the wall, but it seems pretty flimsy. 1/4" plywood? Don't think it could handle much especially if it is bouncing. I may just store it under the bench seat cushioned by blanket or comforter.
You can search "154bh" in the forums search and come up with other owners and ideas.

Welcome to the JOF ScooterDiva! We also like to stay connected and have a 'hotspot' for our smartphone. Hope all went well with picking up your tt yesterday. Congrats

Well, we made it back to Connecticut in one piece. The dealer was in southern Jersey and we took the Turnpike down there. But wanted the trip home to be nice, quiet and uneventful, so we took the Garden State Parkway home. In the process, avoiding the George Washington Bridge craziness by taking the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Our new TT is now sitting in the driveway all safe and sound. Spent most the day yesterday setting the the kitchen, adding memory foam mattresses, etc.
Didn't sleep in Camp Driveway but I did have a nice long nap in one of the bunks with the dogs
