We are very excited, since this is our first weekend taking our new to us 05 2701SS on her maiden voyage!
Congrats on the new trailer, I know how exciting it is as well. We had a severe rain storm last year and water came into our pop up at the corner of our bed at the stitching. Our feet got soaked along with the bedding and that was the straw so to speak that was it's undoing. Still, we did have fun anyway. I believe that with nature you have to have an open mind and adapt to the unexpected with a positive outlook or else stay in a hotel.

Thank You!
Thats sounds like our tent experience, left in the morning went to Osage Beach for the day, while we are gone, it rained, but only in the campground, not in town, we had left the entire tent unzipped, came back, everything drenched. I think that is when we moved into the popup.

This was a wise choice. We too 3 years ago decided to buy a tent trailer and it was a very bad choice. We had travel trailers all our life and decided to give up camping and have a house built near the waterways. 5 years after the bug came back to haunt us again with camping. So we decided to try a tent. Not long after we gave up and upgraded with the tent trailer and that also did not work. Then we sold the tent trailer and just bought a Rockwood 2011 model 1809s with all the goodies you could order extras and we are so happy now. It is the first time that we have a trailer with a pull out and we dont regret a bit this purchase.
