Talking New Windjammer owner....almost!

Hello all! New to the forums and thought I'd say hello. My wife and I have camped or entire lives and this will be our first trailer.

We should be picking up our 2012 Windjammer 2809 a week from today and we are both pretty excited! Hopefully we will be taking our maiden voyage sometime in mid April for a weekend.

I'm interested to hear from all the Forest River owners out there for any tips, tricks, hints or other information for when we get the trailer!

Hey MOjammer! Welcome to the forum and to the Windjammer family. We're south of you in Harrisonville and we have a 3008W. Got ours last May from Liberty RV. Is that who you dealt with? You will find tons of information and helpful tips in this forum. Lots of great people. We camp up at Wallace State Park quite a bit. Maybe we'll run into you sometime.

Welcome MOjammer. We are in a similar boat. We ordered our 3001W a couple of weeks ago and expect to have it delivered by mid April. Just received the hitch via FedEx today. Now just need the trailer. Our first trip is going to be up your way. We just made a reservation at a park in Branson. Hope to see you on the road some day.

Welcome to the Windjammer family. Best advice I can give is take your time on the PDI, make sure you get the second year warranty, and get out and enjoy your new rig!

Thanks for the warm welcome and the helpful advice!

Looks like we're all set to pick it up at Liberty RV this Saturday at 3. The wife and I are both excited for our first TT, that's for sure.

We do the majority of our camping at the Cedar Ridge campground at Clinton Lake just West of Lawrence, KS. My dad is a full-time corps of engineers volunteer our there so our whole family spends as much time as possible out there in the spring and summer. We are hoping now that we will have our own TT to head out to more new locals for mostly weekend trips.

Any advice on some good campgrounds within a few hours of KC would be appreciated to!

Tell the gang at Liberty RV hello. I mentioned earlier that we really like Wallace State Park up near Cameron. We have hit several of the Missouri State Parks and find them to be very consistent and the restrooms are always first class. My brother likes Watkins Mill. I've never camped there but he pulls his pop up there with his two boys for a quick get away.

If you haven't been out to Clinton Lake I would highly suggest the Cedar Ridge campground. One of the nicest I've ever been to, water and electric in all sites, kid friendly and a very well maintained campground. We will be making our first trip in the new trailer out there in April.

I second the advice on paying close attention on the walk thru.It is a time when you are wanting to get home with the unit,but ask questions,take a pad and pencil and write stuff down.Trust me,we have had 2 fifth wheels,two travil trailers and a popup.When we bought the windjammer this last year,we were told the water filter was under the television behind a door that had to have 2 screws removed to get into it.Turns out a speaker was behind that door,and the water filter is in the bathroom under the vanity.Just remember you are in a hurry to get it home ,but the guy doing the walkthru is wanting to get rid of you also,so he can move on to another unit.Pay close attention to the genesis sound system,if yours has one.Make sure all functions are explained to you,cable,air,dvd,satilite.
