Good Morning!

FINALLY picked up our new Crusader 295RST with our new F250. I can not describe how easy it was! This was our first 5th wheel and to say it is night and day from our previous trailer would be an understatement. Hitching this up, pulling it the two hour trip north to our seasonal site at The Great Divide Campground in Sussex County NJ was so easy. Backing up maneuvering this in to our site and unhitching couldn't have been simpler.
I have to say all the help and advice I received from this forum was incredible. From the trailer to the truck purchase, to the hitch. You guys were great. I only hope I can be of service now to someone else.
Mike,Betty Ann and our pup Nina!

Happy Camping
We are brand new to camping also, right now our MH is in the shop for minor repair! How was the park? We've been to Garner SP, it was beautiful, we went there twice! Going to Inks lake SP next. We are having a frog rally in Oct. at Buckhorn resort, hope you get to come!

Should be a Lippert Auto-leveling DVD that came with the rig. I've found trial and error to be key in my style of learning...

No second year warranty available from PT at this point... We'll probably choose a Good Sam's Club or similar option as our FR warranty nears completion next March.
