Smile We have it! With pics!

Picked up the trailer yesterday (Saturday) and everything is going well so far. The only defect we have seen so far is the kitchen table is too close to the wall so you cant let the window shade down all the way.

My first attempt at parking the thing we'll rate as "OK" and we were lucky enough to get a pull through site that doesn't require backing into. I do need to be more patient with leveling the trailer. Not to bad, all in all for first time out.

Kathy has jumped right in and commandered control of the kitchen! Cooked our first meal this morning and coffee from the percolator smelled really great. As it was 4th of July weekend the KOA park was crowded and noisy with mild partying and fireworks until midnight. The matress was great! Got better sleep than at the bug-barn we stayed at Friday night.

Moving in was hard work, but fun, for both of us. Kathy's word of the week is "WOW!!!" Pictures are sometimes worth more than words. See attached.

The road from the dealer to here is 2 lane highway. We were passed head on by several 18 wheelers at highway speed. Didn't even feel them. Aside from some bouncing on rough roads the trailer is well mannered. Find out for sure Tuesday when we tow from here to Lake Cumberland State Park, KY.

More later.

A quick word of friendly advice. When you arrive at a site and you're getting set up, before you open your slideout all the way, check to make sure that the pantry door by the fridge hasn't come open.

Yeah, I can see that would really suck...

Looking for jamb ups comes right after taking down the braces. But thanks for pointing that out.
