I have to say that this weekend flew by very quick. I spent the entire weekend tinkering with the 228 and learning all of its little secrets. After all, that is the best part of owning a TT besides the camping part.....just one big toy. My wife is already frustrated, she spent the weekend packing it with all the stuff we took out of our old 19H. The reason she is frustrated is there are so many cabinets and storage spaces she doesn't know exactly where to put things. That is one of the reasons we sold the 19H, storage. I also had the Equal-i-zer hitch installed, put the Maxx Air vent on over the bathroom, spare tire went in the storage space under the queen bed. I hate when things rust and you can't free them when you need them. Plenty more mods in the works that I will fill you in on later. Getting ready to go next weekend for a fall festival at a state park an hour away. Will take more pictures then. Now I have to go to work and pay for this toy.

Looks great and those aluminum wheels are really nice. Tell her not to worry we gave up trying to fill them as there only half full. That's a good idea for the spare and don't forget there is also all that room in the f150. Looking forward to seeing all your mods.

Looking good Wolverine , I like the wheels, I went with steelies I hate what salt does to nice rims, steels I can just repaint, and that power jack , I'll probably get a power one this winter, didn't think it would be that big of a deal, a few times out and I knew I should have gone electric. Enjoy the fall festival.
