Drove the new camper home today

Went to get the unit this AM. The dealer was suppose to put in the fantastic fan and got amnesia. So I had to rant a little to get it done while I waited. ( they knew I was annoyed and gave me a bigger discount and a break on the labor. Everything else was fine.
Towing it was certainly different then towing my old Rockwood Premier pop up. Weird not being able to see out the back window.
It towed very well all the way home - like an hour ride.
And, I got it in the driveway on the first try - YIPPEE!!

Now we are going to get it rigged up to go to VT on Sunday.

We are all very excited about the maiden voyage.

Congrats on the new camper. Where in VT are you headed? We just got back from 9 days in the NE Kingdom (East Burke area).

where is Lake Champlain? We visited up there last November and loved it. Not camping though. Would love to take more trips there. We also just got rid of our 98 rockwood premier pop up. Congrats on your new TT. Which model did you get?

Apple Orchard Resort is a really nice place, we were there about 10 years ago and really enjoyed it. Have a great time with the new camper !
