1st Time TT owner (Surveyor SV291)

We just purchased a 2007 Surveyor SV291 on Friday. I guess you could say we have a bad case of cabin fever, as it was 5 below zero as we walked in to do the paper work. We are now planning all of our camping destinations for the 2008 season. We have tented for several years but have found it to be a bit challenging with a youngster and with hopes to have a 2nd child we decided to make the leap to a TT. We look forward to reading and participating in the forum as we prepare for our maiden voyage in March or April. I hope it will be warmer than 5 below.

Welcome and congratulations on the new trailer. I think most everyone here understands the cabin fever. I am sure you will love the upgrade. We ungraded from a hybrid to a hard side in mid November, and haven't been out yet either.

Hi.
Welcome. I am waiting for my hybrid to arrive in a few weeks. I am planning on going out in mid-February but my weather doesn't compare to yours.
Enjoy.
Amy

Welcome Jeff and Jen, we just purchased the same trailer (same int. color as well) in Oct. We had it at home for a week and the kids (or maybe me as well) wanted to camp so we spent the weekend sleeping in it! But being Canadian we had to put it away for the winter and can wait to get it out as soon as it warm enough!

Thank you all for the welcomes.
Jamey, I would be interested to hear of any modifications you have done to the TT. I think we will be spending a weekend at camp driveway as well once we bring it home.

We too bought a SV291. We picked it up the day before Halloween and went for a long weekend a few days later. It was cold, but everything worked great. We upgraded from a crappy used Aerolite and everyone was extremely happy. The only mods so far have been the 3M removable hooks. I love them and put them everywhere. As soon as the weather breaks and we bring it back from storage I will be installing a stove splash guard. It's not a big thing, but It seems like a no brainer. I can't see risking food splashes on the brand new couch.

When you get the splash guard done could you send some pic and let me know how it turned out. Thats one thing I would alos liek to do, really wish they would have switched places the stove and sink
