Pulled the Trigger

My wife and I are both retired and decided to join the club, so we placed an order yesterday for a 2021 Pinnacle 36FBTS with the farmhouse interior. Added the genset, macerator, slide covers, two solar panels and two 6V batteries. Purchased our tow vehicle last month ...

Nice truck! I am not a GM guy, but the GMC appearance wins over the Chevy look all week long.

Congratulations! You will be glad you went for the dual rear wheels with a rig that heavy.

I expect delivery in 3-4 months. No rush, as spring up here is typically around 15 April or later.

When we were in Watertown decades ago, I remember riding my snowmobile along hedgerows that still had snow in early June! We camp on the river frequently. Congratulations on the entire set up!

My wife and I are owners of a 3500 RAM Dually and a 36FBTS. We have been traveling for 3 years and love it. We have had several issues but they have been resolved. We love our 5 wheel but we don’t love Jayco customer service. Enjoy the open road. The Lee’s

We have a 2021 Whitehawk TT with the farm house interior. We wanted it to sit in the driveway for incase we might use it next season and also because of the 2 ac's and 50 amp power. SO when we walked into it for the first time My hand went to the cupboard door to wipe the black soot like look. Nothing came off and I had to laugh when I realized it was a farm house interior. Same for the wife. Not that we don't like it but it is different . Enjoy your new rv and we also have a chev dually but over kill because we have an awesome 05 truck . chevman
