Soon to be Jay Flight 24RBS owner in Ohio.

I have used this forum for info before but since the wife and I decided to order a 2017 Jay Flight 24RBS I signed up and have already made few posts. At this point, I guess the proper thing to do would be to introduce myself.

My name is Greg, my wife and I have been camping in various forms for a little while. It started with a singular and very bad tent experience to which she vowed she would never camp again. Some years later I convinced her to try an in vehicle (2004 Honda Element) set up which she was cool with. This lasted a few years and then progressed to a pop-up camper towed by said Element. After about 3 good years of camping in that and then a few years of limited use due to injuries and obligations, I traded in the Element on an F150 so we could purchase a used travel trailer. We used that last year and have already decided to purchase a new TT this year. I like our current trailer but the bathroom is a little tight for me and she wanted a little more room in the form of a slide which our current trailer doesn't have. Down side is the wait time to get it built and literally a week from the day we placed the order for the new unit, the wife started a new job (leaving behind an almost 22 year long career at the old place) which is going to put a damper on available time off for a little while. I just may have to break it in on the weekends by myself, or there is always camp driveway Looking forward to sharing ideas, advice and memories with folks on the forum and maybe at a campground

One last thing, the screen name was something I started using way back on some Nissan 240SX forums and I have pretty much stuck to it for every forum I have been associated with since. It's just easy to remember.
