Finally getting around to saying HI! New 26L owner

We bought our trailer in September 2010 after years of deciding if we would enjoy it or not. We purchased a Cherokee 26L and it fits my wife and I perfectly. We tow it with a 2003 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi....grunts but gets it done. Several threads on this site have helped me make decisions and gave me the confidence to do projects and winterizing myself. Today I received my MaxBrake brake controller to upgrade from the Primus IQ we got from the dealer (never got it quite right). We will see if that helps with the head bobbing.

To all the education I say thanks!

Even though you've been around awhile, to the forum.

This is a great place for information about your RV. Lots of knowledgeable people willing to help.

I hope you have a great summer camping.

Good luck and happy camping!

Update:
Yesterday a deal on a 2008 Ram 2500 4x4 with the CTD practically fell in my lap and the DW agreed so now I am busy changing everything over to the 08 and having fun with all the valuable info I have learned here. BTW the MaxBrake works great!

We will be camping over Easter so the DW is stressing a little to make sure I get everything right. I always tell here this site has all the info I need.

As soon as I can I will post pics of the setup.

Again, Thanks to everyone for your help without me even having to ask.

It is just me and DW so there is plenty of space for the 2 of us. We looked for several years and this is the first model that we both liked. So far (knocking on wood) we have not had any manufacturing defects or issues. The factory tires were replaced by the dealership because of cracks on the side walls. To answer the main question, we love it!

My father in law passed away in December so the MIL will be claiming the sofa as her bedroom when we go out camping. I believe there will be plenty of space for the 3 of us. Good thing is I love my MIL so even if it gets tight we will survive.

I did not camp that much as a kid but the time or 2 I did (tent) it really gives me some great memories. The DW and her family had several trailers so that was the biggest influence for us getting a TT and it has been no looking back since the day we got it!

BTW congrats on the trailer and enjoy the kids and the memories you will make.
