First trip.

Made it to Pigeon Forge. Trailer pulled great. Ran about 60 and averaged 11 mpg. Had supper and now relaxing by the fire. Too dark for pics but will post some tomorrow.

Sitting by the river in Pigeon Forge. Weather has been great. Think I'm going to enjoy this RV life.

Is that a 25 DS? We came close to getting that unit!

It's the 25KS. Has the Murphy bed in the front. Kitchen is on a slide. Great for the two of us.

Second night of first trip. So far no problems other than learning how to operate bath fan. Think I will add shelves to the wardrobes beside the bed since seems have more wardrobe space than we will need. Everything worked fine and no complaints, yet. Heading home in a few hours. Yep, this RV stuff is okay. I'm definitely going to like this. Now for a try at dry camping.

DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER!!!!

You sound like you are about to enter the dark and addictive world of "MODIFICATIONS". Once you walk into the light, there is no turning back.

Before you know it, you'll be building shelves, redistributing plumbing, changing lightbulbs, adding underbody storage tubes, vent covers, new showerhead, ceiling fans, addng batteries, and maybe even screwing solar panels onto your roof! And you'll be bouncing ideas for the NEXT modification off of others on this forum, before you even finish the mod that you are currently working on!

LOL! We've all been there, but don't say that you weren't warned!! (And who knows, you could become the next Herk! )

Have fun! There's lots of good ideas on the forum for adding shelves; the strong but relatively lighweight metal shelving from Lowes or Home Depot seem to be the most popular, but some have done this sucessfully with wood.
