First trip with new trailer

Anyone else taking their first trip with their new trailer this weekend? I am getting my new 3006w out for two weekends in a row. Santa Cruz here I come!

Yes we did this past weekend. Got the new puma 30kdb out for it's maiden voyage so we stayed close to home but everything when perfect with the tt but the wd hitch they through in deal was allowing a lot of bounce so took it in today and come to find out they put the 800 lb bars on and should of put on the 1000 lb bars. So they swapped them out and it eliminated the problem.

You are so lucky to be able to get out again so quickly in your new trailer. Where are you staying in Santa Cruz and does it has full hook ups?

We are staying at Smithwoods RV Resort. It's actually in Felton off Hwy 9. There are quite a few places in this area. All are 15 minutes from the Boardwalk.

Yep, had our first trip out last weekend too. We picked up our 3065w on Friday and found a campground 10 miles away and stayed the weekend. Going out again next weekend too. Can't wait.

We are very excited. We are picking up our new 2013 Rockwood 2109S from our local RV dealer today. Plan to try it out this weekend at our Ohio State Park Campground.

Yes! We our taking our new Roo 233S on the May 24 weekend (the unofficial start of the Canadian summer). We are going to a local city owned park with elec. and water hook-up. It will be a good first trip only a half hour from home in case we forget anything.

Looking forward to it.

We are heading out for our first trip tomorrow with our 2012 Forest River 2604. We are not going far. This is more or less a shake down trip. Going to River View, Loveland Colorado. Let you know when I get back how things worked out. Having read a lot of threads about Rockwood trailers I am having certain negative images.. tires blowing etc. Also got a Evolution Edge CS for my 2008 Ford f-150 Lariat 5.4L, set it up with tow package see how that preforms. Later

Here is a pic before we left for the Ca Delta over the Memorial weekend. Second trip complete. My only issues is weak sounding speakers outside and in the bedroom if they work at all. I'm planning on pushing for replacement of radio in the fall. The two separate rooms and quad bunks fit this family of 5 perfectly.
