Very nice Jayco 228, congrats! I feel a little gyped on my 228! I only got one 30# propane tank when I see everyone else so far got two tanks. No biggie, just have to buy a different stand and regulator. Good luck on finding a camping spot around here. We tried last week booking at Gull Lake for the long weekend but everything has been booked since March! And the summer basically looks booked for the provincial campgrounds. Might still be space at the privately owned campgrounds. Maybe we will see you around. Ryan

Are you going on to Alberta reserve a site ? I think you can only book 30 or 60 days in advance so pick your date and work backwards and mark your calendar to get on and book. Cross lake is a nice campground we go there quite a bit and it is usually not too hard to book and it's close for you, a little over an hour. All the provincial campgrounds also leave open sites for first come first serve. Long weekends are usually the only hard ones to book.

Your trailer looks great. I like the new style of skylight. It looks deeper than the style that allows more light. I would like the extra few inches that style might offer. Will have to look into that. Yes if your drinking beer and have the stereo going your camping in my mind, your driveway or Walmarts.

wow i really like your tub surround!! and your skylight looks different and more clear than mine. cant complain too much cause i do have one there and could change it out pretty easy im sure. i have already taken the inside part down and cleaned out the wood particles from it being built.
looks awesome!!!!
i have heated mine for 3 nights (sleeping in it @ home lol) and part of a day and have camped and cooked for 4 weekends worth and used my grill on my camper @ home 3-4 other times and still have not emptied 1 of my 20lbers yet. very glad we have 2 though so we can run her empty without worry. my father in law carries an extra bottle in his truck sometimes if hes worried about running out. that wouldnt be an option for us as we tow with a suv lol.
again your camper looks awesome!!! congrats and glad to see you get her home!!! ENJOY!!!

After seeing your tub surround, may need to be something to look at in the fall to have installed. We were looking to go to Cross Lake towards the end of August. The Alberta Provincial campground reservation site only allows you to book up to 90 days ahead. We will be looking to get in after the long weekend. Ryan
