Surveyor 301 sv 2012

Took delivery on Saturday and are unbelievably excited! Transferred our stuff from the old trailer (why did I think that would be fun!) and it is truly beautiful. Found a few "issues" that the dealer will have to deal with (that,s why they are called dealers....right??!!?? Lol) slept in it the first night and are going out on our maiden voyage for a few nights this weekend. Thought there was lots of storage (no...I didn't fill everything up) but it seems there are a lot of little spaces...we are canning the ottoman and using that space for larger far so good! This is a new unit that never sold. So...all my new best friends....we are experienced trailer folks but would like to hear from you for any mods you have done or any problems we might keep our eyes open for. Rumor has it that here in Canada we will only have one more month of camping!!!!

Welcome and Congrats on the new trailer!

Only 1 more month?? Are you kidding? Here in Canada, we can camp all year
We live in BC now, but we camped all year in southern Ontario too when we lived there. Winter is my favourite time to camp, after September and October.

Congrats on the new trailer. We took possession of a 2013 SV-301 back in March. Really enjoying it so far too. Funny you say you dumped the ottoman pretty quick. I did the same it was totally useless. I chunked it in the dumpster and built me a storage box on casters that rolls into the space. We also don't use the convertible table. I took it out and we just use a set of tv tables for mealtime. Makes things much more roomy without it in there. Heading out to Charleston, SC this Friday for the Labor Day weekend. Can't wait to be out there.
