First weekend out went great!!!

Well our first weekend out went great, the only downfall was coming home yesterday. Everything worked the way it should , the only appliance we didn't use was the AC . Friday when we arrived it was raining the hardest and then slowed down after we got set up. We stayed toasty warm and the weather did improve. Had a great time and can't wait to get out again. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Glad that you enjoyed your first trip out. And I have to agree with you. Coming home is the worst part. I try my best to extend it as long as I can every time we go out.

Like this last trip. Was only supposed to be for 2 days, 3 max. Turned into 6! hehehe

What can I say... I'm good! hehehe

We've set up in the rain many times getting completely soaked! All you can do is just laugh & deal with it setting up only what you need until it quits or wait until the next morning. Just be careful of the spring storms popping up. What could be a gentle day/evening with light winds & putting the awning out with lights can turn into a nightmare with a passing storm that barrels through at 4a.m. We are going out again next weekend to a different lakeside campground with the wife bringing the fishing boat. Congrats on the trailer!

Trailer looks so nice - thanks for the great pictures! What size is your patio mat? Do you know if its 6 or 9 feet wide?

The sofa folds down so the bed can go over top of it when we are ready for bed. It was one of the selling features of the trailer for us , we wanted a sofa and a queen bed and this worked for us.
