LOL, Wayne. We also travel with a big Golden. I call him the equivalent of traveling with a 12 year old!

Hey reinbeauke! You will absolutely love your 22FB. Nice layout and perfect for the 2 (3) of you. Plus you have some room for an occasional visitor or 2 but make sure they are small (kids). lol
I preferred the 22 FB over the one we got in January (24 FBS) but DW had to have a slide. It's only the 2 of us and a Chihuahua (not quite as big as your golden) and it's perfect for us.
Enjoy you new rig and Happy RVing.
Jeff

Thanks

Thanks everyone. My old trailer sold and went down the road last night. I'm really excited now to get my Jayco. That big empty spot in the driveway is just wrong. The only thing I know I need to do is get the aluminum wheels. I got the elite package but it didn't have the wheels. Dealer wants $175 each wheel. Not happening. Any body know for sure what the wheel size is on this model? I found what looks like them online for $63 each.

I wouldn't bother dishing out money for aluminum wheels... I would use that money for some other useful upgrades way before I started with cosmetic changes. That's just me though.

Upgrades

Just curious.
What upgrades would you suggest?
The trailer is pretty well loaded.
There are a few small things I have already started picking up. Going to add a few shelfs in some over head cabnets to increase usefull storage. Always put a nice flourescent light over kitchen sink and may switch to some LED bulbs.
I just really like the way the wheels make the unit look. The white ones look so cheap
Maybe your thinking about something I'm not.
Welcome any ideas.

Picked up a 2011 22FB yesterday - got a great deal on it - it's like new! Looking forward to camping in it - we spent a long time researching both layout and quality before deciding on the 22FB as close to perfect for us!

Looks great! We are taking our 2011 22FB out to Watkin's Glen NY next week for our maiden voyage!

Congrats on the 22fb. We've had ours now for 2years and are thoroughly enjoying it! Easy to squeeze into tight spots and tow, very comfy TT.

Likes:
Outdoor shower for rinsing off
Size of fridge and 3 burner stove/oven
Thermal Pkg with upgraded A/C
I could go on forever

Dislikes:
Corner edge on cabinet next to bed makes it hard to make the bed and hurts like hell when scraping against it!
Cords on the pull down privacy shades are cheesy and frail really easy.

And like others have done, we added a memory foam topper from walmart, only did the 1.5" thick and OMG, what a difference it makes! I think I sleep better on it than our Temporpedic at home!

Happy Camping and again Congrats on your new TT!

Here's a few things I would consider before the wheels:

-MaxxAir vent cover
-water pressure accumulator
-X-Chocks
-mattress topper (if you wish)
-fridge fans
-stove top cover for more counterspace
-carpet in the pass-thru storage area to protect floor
-Oxygenics shower head
-corner splash guards for tub
-upgrade interior speakers
-carpet step covers
-rear hitch mounted to trailer frame for carrying bike rack

Just to get you started! Believe me, it never ends... Nice looking trailer. That thing will tow beautifully.
