VLite Maiden Voyage!

Purchased a 21WRS from PECO Campers in late Feb. and finally had a chance to camp Mother's day weekend. We went to our favorite GC, Bald Mountain Resort in Hiawassee, GA. To be honest, it went better than expected!! Towing, although I was nervous, was a breeze. We backed in, leveled, set up and cracked an adult beverage within 20 minutes. I can not tell you how much more enjoyable this is than with a popup!! The weather was perfect, never got a chance to turn on the A/C (tried but the DW made me shut it off). All systems seemed to work well, no leaks, nothing broken.

Man - to be able to go to the bathroom in our own TT - priceless!!

Anyhow, special thanks to the members of this forum. Your patience and knowledge have been a blessing and made our weekend much more relaxing.

Thanks
Jack, Mary Beth, Kirby & Khloe (camping pugs).

Thank you!! Next trip is a three-nighter at Unicoi State Park - can't wait!! With our schedules once a month is as much as we can get out, but we try to do extended weekends. We are also planning a week in August and October

Another welcome to the V-nose gang. Our V-lite has about 10,000 miles on it so far and we will be adding another 4,000 this summer when we head out to the F.R.O.G. rally in Indiana this summer.

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY!!!

The 2 biggest things I had to adjust to was the length(35') and the v front reflecting vehichles passing me from either direction. I'd see that in my rearview mirror and it kinda freaked me out. But I got used to it after a couple trips. I won't be able to manuver into those tight spaces like I used to but I'll sacrifice with the comfort!

Hi Jack. We also purchased our TT from Peco's last September. Went from an 8' popup to the 31' 831FKBSS. Talk about a pleasant surprise. We retired in April and are currently packing up for a 3 month trip to Wisconsin. I am a bit nervous about traveling on the interstate, but I'm sure it will be fine. We have camped mostly in the Georgia State Parks. Vogel and Moccasin Creek are my favorites. Have a great summer, and enjoy your TT. I know we will.

Welcome as others have said to the V-Lite family. We love ours as well. We just went camping for the first time over Memorial Weekend and had zero problems. Enjoy your summer camping.
