New G2 32BHDS

We just bought this awesome 32BHDS and are taking her on her maiden voyage this week. Escaping the Phoenix heat and heading to Flagstaff.

For those interested, that is an 01 V10 4X4 Excursion with 35" tires and brand new 4.56 gears. I just upgraded from 3.73 gears, what a huge difference!

We have done tons of tent camping and were so ready to step up into more comfort and protection from the elements. We have a 3 and 5 year old, so the back bedroom of this trailer was perfect for us. I am a big guy, so the giant bathroom sold me.

Happy RVing - I will post pics of our adventures, and am sure I will have questions as thi is our first RV.

Air bags are next. I was going to try adjusting the WD hitch first, but bags are going on in the next couple weeks.

Congratulations on the new 32BHDS! We absolutely love ours. The slideout bunkhouse gives our girls their own space and plenty of room for friends. Outdoor kitchen is awesome (great fridge, sink, stove and cabinets----only wish it had a microwave--future Mod ). The ducted 15K BTU A/C has kept us nice and cool with our 100+ Texas heat this summer.

Heading to the coast again next weekend; lakes are super-low in the Texas Hill Country. Outdoor shower is great for removing beach sand.

Enjoy!

Congratulations on yor new Travel Trailer! We also love ours. We have owned it for just about 9 months. We bought it from the original owner just 2 years old and he had already put in many mods. Our 3 children love the bunkhouse as do Rocky and I. My 2nd favorite feature is the rear door. I would love to see what mods you do.n we are working slowly as our budget affords to add in homey touches and points of convenience to personalize out TT and help it feel like our home away from home.

Welcome from Tucson. Hope you have a great time. Let us know how the truck pulled the trailer up those hills. Was thinking about getting 4:30 gears in my Excursion with stock size tires. Later Ernie

We have stocked it with our camp cooking stuff, utencils, and bought some new linen. We want to get it to the point where we bring food and some clothes, and hit the road. We are pretty close as we had tons of camping stuff already from our tent days.

What things have been done to your TT, and what do you want to do to it? I am curious what mods people do to these?
