Don't fear that Canadian winter. They are camping somewhere all year around. We took delivery of our 28. Ft Sandstorm TH the first of June and have only about 22 days in it so far. We are sure not done yet. You are in for a lot of fun times in that puppy. Welcome. Tom

High five on the tongue jack. On our first Toy hauler it took me all of three days to get one. This time just ordered it from the factory from day one.

Between eBay and Amazon, with a little work you will find a hundred things to add. If it didn't come with solar, put that on your list.

Got the jack on, I think it took me longer to take out of the packaging Solar is next on my list along with changing out the fans to remote controlled units. My wife and I are of um... average height as people say!!!

The MaxxAir is the one I'm looking at. Glad to hear you like it as well. We have her out for it's first weekend. So far all is good. Had a small leak from the water pump filter looking thing. I had to hand tighten it and all seems well now. The wife is really enjoying it, which is always a plus.

Thanks. WA is where we want to end up some day. We did a kayaking camping trip around the San Juan Islands and had a blast. It tows great. I'm using the Titan XD with the cummins. Plenty of power to get up and go as well as stop.

congrats DJ, wishing you many happy miles! I did the solar / more batteries / inverter thing and will share what I did, when you're ready. First thing you need to do, to figure solar and battery needs is to get and install a good monitor like Bogart Engr. Trimetric TM 2030.

Thanks WW. I will definitely reach out to you when I get the solar project going. I'm adding a speaker/amp upgrade project to the list as well.
