We had two shelf failures last year in our TT. My DH reinforced them underneath with wood strips which he glued on, stiffening up the shelves. He also used about 8-10 screws per shelf instead of the cheap staples holding them in. They're really sturdy now.

There were 2 V nose campers in Living Forest Campground over the winter. One was a Windjammer the other did not have a name on it. Tonight we are in Swift Current SK and there in a Windjammer here. They are out there just hiding.

There is one Windjammer scheduled to come offline at FR the first week in May and be at our house shortly thereafter! The DW can hardly wait!

A V-lite just pulled in at Chattanooga TN, the first I have seen in a campground. Someone to share the tours with, but we don't mind.

We found a Windjammer at Table Rock State Park this weekend. Hooked up with Rebel702 Friday evening for a few minutes. Haven't seen any others this weekend.

Just heard from my dealer and my TT is built and will be shipped to dealer this week! Sweetness I can't wait. Picking it up next week and I told the dealer to be ready for a lengthy pdi as I am going to turn everything on, slide everything out, and operate everything that has a moving part, including checking all seals, seams, doors, slides, etc... They replied with, we would not expect anything else. It's much easier for us to fix it before you take it and they will make their own extensive pdi before I come to try and catch stuff before I get there.

I love Westland Camping Center in westland Michigan. What a great dealer. Check them out if you are looking. They have a great selection of Flagstaffs and more.

Congrats Philip! I know you've been anxiously waiting. Make sure to bring a pad and paper with you to the PDI. It's good that you have already told your dealer you plan to take your time with the PDI. We told our dealer the same thing, and our PDI took 7 hours lol.

Back on topic, DW and I made quick weekend getaway to Holliday Lake SP in Appomattox this weekend. Not a Windjammer or V-Nose to be found anywhere, but there were less than 10 campers in the entire park. Made for a nice, quiet, peaceful weekend. Rained late yesterday afternoon and all day today pretty much, but spending so much time in the camper today especially, really made DW and I appreciate our choice of campers. It's been almost a year since we picked ours up, and we love it as much today, as the day we got it!
