247BHDS Home!!!

Yesterday my wife and I took delivery of our 247BHDS. This is our first travel trailer.

The drive home was 45 miles at 62mph. My initial thoughts are the truck and trailer are well matched. I am continually impressed with the ability of the F150 with the Ecoboost motor. There was plenty of power left in the truck. The trailer tracked great as well.

Once home, we set the trailer up in our driveway and stayed the night for a "shakedown" test. So far, so good. The first night was uneventful. All systems are working well and we are figuring out how and where we are going to pack everything.

We are a short 33 hours from pulling out of the driveway and taking our trailer on the road for a 4 night, 370 mile trip. We've spent the last week checking and verifying that all systems work and packing and organizing to our liking.


I'm still very happy that we chose the Surveyor line and still don't feel like we compromised in any way on this trailer. It truly was the benchmark for us.

We've got the same model and pull with an Ecoboost too! I love both. We have truly enjoyed our trailer and look forward to many more years. The features and space are great. Enjoy yours and travel safely.
