A new couple from Bakersville, NC

We just bought a new Wildwood that we'll be putting on our new permanent side in the Florida Keys in October.
We are quite excited since we have been wintering in the Keys for the past ten years in the state parks, and it is harder to get sites each year, so from now on we will have no worries.
We are an older couple but compete against the young folks in canoe and kayak races all up and down the east coast.
We also love exploring with either our kayaks or our tandem canoe, and have been to every off shore Key in the Keys as well as doing many overnight tent camping trips in the Everglades.
This is our first Forest river trailer and our first trailer with slides, so I am sure we'll have plenty of questions, and hopefully you good folks can help us out

Welcome and happy camping and kayaking.

I read this is your first unit with slides.

Tip: when your slides are fully extended, you or have someone look at the rubber seals on the top of the slides and ensure they are flat and not curled underneath, if the seals are curled there is the possibility of rain getting into the unit.

This doesn't always happen that much but it is worth while to check, especially if you decide to leave your slides out for 6 months.
