Smile New 264BH for us!

We purchased a 2014 264BH the other day, and couldn't be more excited. Our dealer (Lone Star RV in Houston) is installing the extras we ordered now, and we'll be picking it up in a few days. Our first trip will be to the Mount Rushmore area, and we're planning be be on the road for about two weeks. We plan to do a "test" day or two near our home in the Houston area before we leave to make sure we know how to operate everything. If we pass our "test", we'll be hitting the road in a few weeks. We're moving up from a 16ft. TT from another manufacturer, and are amazed at how much more storage there is.
Our TV is a 2002 Yukon with a 5.3L engine and the factory towing package. We're also having a weight distribution hitch installed.
Please let us know of any "gotta see" areas that we won't want to miss, and any tips for the trip would be appreciated.
Thanks
Pawpaw

Re: New 264BH for us!

Awesome! I am sure you will love it. We have a 28BHS and love it.

I would suggest you make your reservations to get a spot, being you are coming from so far. Do you want hookups or not. We stayed in Custer State Park but we did not have hookups at the time. Rafter J in Hill City has hookups and is a nice park. Someone also mentioned Sylvan Lake which is beautiful.

My brother suggested we see the Cosmos. I am glad we did it was really amazing. My DH is an engineer so it was fun to see his expressions. DD also enjoyed it also. http://cosmosmysteryarea.com/

We love the Mt Rushmore area. As far as Mt Rushmore, try to get there before sundown. They do an amazing laser show with patriotic music. They have plenty of areas to park so that is not an issue. You pay for parking but entrance to the monument is free.

Enjoy your road trip. Ours is over for this summer, school starts in 2 weeks.

Thanks guys.

We're working on our route now, planning our overnight stops, and yes, we will make reservations for our stops.

Maromeo, thanks for the info on places to visit. The Cosmos looks like a fun place and we'll be adding it to our list.

We have a 264bh and love it. Only problem I have with it is that the mattress could be a little better.

We bought a 2013 264BH this spring, taking it out on our 3rd run tomorrow. So far it is awesome! I agree about the mattress being a bit tough....but it sure beats the heck out of the inflatable in the tent we used up until now! If you guys learn any new tricks with the 264 please share, we are still learning the ropes.

Thanks guys! I agree with you about the mattress. That's the only thing my DW didn't care for. We purchased a 3" mattress topper to take care of that little problem. I'm installing a bed lift kit to make getting to the storage area easier too. We're also making a few more small mods: 12 volt lights in both the front and rear storage areas, screes on all the exterior vents, a vent cover over the bathroom vent, and a flush system on the black water tank. Now we're about two weeks away from our first trip in it.
