New to the Site

Hello everyone,
My wife and I are the new owners of a 2008 Jayco 22FB. This looks like a nice site with lots of good people and information. We are getting things ready and planning our first trip, I plan on getting the bearings and brakes serviced and get new Maxxis tires installed before heading out. I had to tow it 6hrs to get it home and it towed quite nice with my 2016 Chev Silverado and a Reese weight distribution hitch. Camping with a travel trailer is new to us so we are looking forward to learning as we go.

Thank You
John

Welcome and congrats on moving to the "dark side"!!!

Do as much reading as you can, and when needed, ask away!!! We are here to help [you spend money on needed items!!! ]. Your first trip you may consider staying at Camp Driveway. That way if you find you need something, you just run into the house to grab it. And make a list of items you think you could use. Makes it easier to remember....

Did you buy from a dealer or the previous owner? Regardless, you may need to readjust the wdh for your truck, once the trailer is loaded up and ready for a trip. A ton of info in my signature links on wdh's. Any questions just ask.

Edd,

Nice emoji, but we need one that states "Welcome to the madness!!!"

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! We greatly appreciate your offers of advice, and will try to learn as much as we can from reading. Our first few nights will definitely be spent in the driveway, and our first "away" trip will be for 2 or 3 nights.

We bought used from a retired couple. We're really happy with the trailer's condition. Thanks for the tip re: wdh once loaded; we'll check out your signature links.
