it's home!!!!!!!!

my trailer is finally in my driveway!!!! it was not too bad towing it home ( only about a 25 minute drive) we have never towed anything before, so not sure about the feeling of the wind hitting the trailer felt really weird and hard to explain-----backing in the driveway took a few times of practice for DH but he is getting it.. it made some loud creaking sounds near the wheels backing it in, not sure what are "normal noises yet" lol, just happy its home and the kids are eating snacks and watching tv in it!!

Congrats !!! If you are using a WDH, that is probably where those creaking noises are coming from.

i sure hope so... it was freaking me out worrying that the tire is coming off or something, sounds like it comes from the trialer and not the hitch but everything looks tight.

On a tandem wheel trailer, the wheels will scrub some when making a turn, and it will sound like a scrubbing noise. The WDHs tend to creak and pop, so that is probably what you are hearing. Us bumper pull trailer owners tend to gather a lot of attention when entering a campground.

Well, congratulations on that new camper!

Gotta see some pics and can't wait to hear about your experiences with it.
