I see the minilites and the 8312SS are showing off, how about showing off some 2701SS?? Show us your rigs, include your TV as well and share some stories, new stories are great and old ones are golden.
Don't be shy, show me yours and I will show you mine later..lol I have been following the forum for awhile, I have learned some things and can't wait to try them out. Spring has sprung, so time to show them off, those that are waiting on orders, post some later or just tell us your plans.
We bought our 05 last November, finally got to camp two weeks ago and forgot the camera, so I don't have any pictures, I know I know. But we had a great two days, and even a bad day camping is better than, well you know. We parked where we had a 280 view of Smithville lake (we love the windows in the 2701)
Weather was warm and cold, bought a Smokey Joe Gold and charcoaled some brats, what a waste of charcoal, wish we would have done burgers...oh well next time. Drug some dead wood out of the woods and made a marshmallow roasting fire, had two of the six grandkids, they had a blast. The camper was perfect, all systems worked and were tested heavily. The water was still off at the lake, so we filled up the tank before we left home and used about 75% in three days, no showers though, drove home for those.
I am taking over payments on our son's 2005s Denali to pull the thing with, I love the short wheel base, because you can back it into any campsite or driveway. I have the equalizer hitch with sway control, pulls like a dream, and with it's 8100 lbs towing capacity, weight is not a concern. First tried pulling her with my 01 F150 Super Crew and the air dam behind the cab and in front of the camper, made it seem like your pulling a sailboat under full sail...
We were able to dump the holding tank, but again no water, the black tank was awful, previous owners just didnt care. I came home ordered a tornado and a dual flush for next time, also ordered a brace for under the step and a bumper hitch for the back to haul bicycles..anyway enough about us, what about you? Anybody going to the FROG rally? We were thinking about it, it's only about a four hour pull for us. Thanks for letting me ramble..
