Glad to hear things are going smooth on your first outing. We currently have a Rockwood 2607 (2010) and promised ourselves we would keep it at least 6-7 years before even thinking of trading up, but I saw the 8289WS and fell in love with it. The problem is we would also have to upgrade our TV to be able to tow it so at this point we will need to wait a while
. This may sound like a dumb question but where did you decide to put your trashcan? One of my pet peeves is that most RVs have no place to put one. Hope you have a great camping season!
