Nice. I know the feeling of being so close to the delivery date. Good luck sleeping the next 4 nights. Lol. We have our first trip in the new 228 this weekend.

I think I'll sleep ok until Wed. I know I want to run out after work and see if its there. Thursday no problem, late shift at work, lots to keep me busy with a floor strip starting, gotta move everything off the sales floor... I'll sleep like a baby. Friday I'm off and I have to sit around until 3:30 until I can head out to do the walkthrough. That is gonna be the killer.

Enjoy the first outing, I'll have plenty of pics up when you get back.

Exciting stuff knowing there is a end in sight and being able to pick up the new TT Lsuduke! We got back last night from our first outing in the trailer and it was good times. Just need to wait another two weeks before we can head out again. Ryan

Your right Ry very exciting times, glad to hear all went well on the maiden voyage. Actually headed to dealership this morning to get my half of the paperwork done, so everything is a go for Friday. The Outlook is supposed to get the brake controller installed today along with the harness, have to check on that when I go, they called last night at 7 to verify what kind of vehicle it was for the right parts, seems kind of late in the game to me, should have ordered it last Friday when the appt was set or Monday at the latest. We shall see.
As far as a name, no I've never been one to name my vehicles. Last car I remember having a name was my parents 1965 Impala "Bessie". I have a buddy that loves to name his stuff, he named his Olds Cutlass, the name escapes me, but I'll never forget his gold Bill Blass Edition Lincoln Mark 6? Lucy, named it after his mom, should have named it Lemon for all the issues it had and its color. Had some unofficial names for my wife's 1984 Mustang "Junk" and her Dodge Grand Caravan " Land Barge" because it was too big to fit in my garage, and you needed a spotter at the back when backing it anywhere. Lol, she hated when I called it that, she really loved that van, but there's no way it would have towed the 228.
Now that I think about it I posted pics of my Saturn's on Saturnfans and called them the Brothers, since they are both dark in color and in photos appear to be black, just different in size.

A couple of days before we picked up ours my wife thought I was losing my mind! Me and the kids had the new BBQ, camping chairs and the propane fire pit setup (of coarse did not light them) in the basement and we were "pretend" camping. She figured I had gone off my rocker and the trailer better be delivered before I really lose it! But it helped pass the time for me. Ryan

Ry that is classic, never would have thought of that. Maybe I'll do some of that over the long weekend here, but will actually have the camper, just nowhere to go with it, wife is still trying to find a way to get a site for the weekend. No luck so far. Might just be the backyard this time.

She's here

I'm so pumped, got the call today at 10:30 that the trailer was here. As soon as work was over I ran over there to see what she looks like. Got a good look, but it was already in the shop to get prepped, no power in it, so didn't poke around inside much, but did snap a few pics with my new cell and we'll see if they fit.
