If I could find a weatherman I could trust, I might feel different. The LED lights outside are blinding...

Start preparing to spend more money to protect your investment. Get some power protection first. This forum is packed with information. Use the search feature.

Always read the "For Sale" section as you may save yourself some bucks. I found a couple of members on here that sell a solution for the awning and wind issue there.

The last bit of my novel here would be to advise you to take what you need from the house and put it in the camper. Buy new stuff for the house. My wife got real keen on that plan.

Whew. My fingers are tired. Safe travels...

That's the first thing I told my wife. Any real wind or you leave. Awning goes up.

I'll have to search about power protection because I'm definitely clueless about that right now. Coming from a pup I'm sure it's different.

The nice thing about stuff is we have everything from popup camping. We do need a little more though. Always do.

Talking

LOL, I had to break the wife of the concept putting everything into the camper. If I did not stop her we would exceed the weight limits.

What I mean is, We have a room in our house were furniture goes to die, Then she saw the camper as such a place. She tried and still does put stuff in the camper that are not needed. Why do I need a complete set of baking equipment? We don't bake.

Ha. I see what you mean. Packing light for a popup will help me for awhile but the amount of storage is astonishing to me compared to what I'm used to.

Congratulation!!! I have a much smaller Grey Wolf (23 BD and they are not making anymore) and we have really enjoyed it so far. I am sure your wife will enjoy it much more than a pop up. We went from tent camping to this unit. I really loved the floor space for the dog. The three of us are very comfortable in it.

We moved from Pop-up to TT after 16 years in the Pop-up. Ditto on the Pop-Up Awning. More trouble that it was worth. Best part about a TT? Hearing rain pitter on the roof and thinking "that's nice" and rolling over. No such sweet dreams in the Pop-Up. Oh... and no more wet canvas!! Whew!

We still take pride in trying to only bring EXACTLY what we expect to eat/wear. The less we have to drag out at the end of the trip the better.

Congrats on the purchase. Hope all goes well for you.
