Tejas, that is - Montgomery, Tx to be more specific

The Wife purchased today (from DeMontrond RV) a 2012 261BH XL, just very slightly used, we'll pick-it-up next Monday.

New to the TT world but previously owned a Roadtrek 190 - which was a very good unit - proved to be too small after we got our 3rd Dog (Shiba Inu breed, all 3).

Plan on "learning" this trailer at the house then taking it on a couple of weekend type trips for shakedown and further learning - probably to the Hill Country (have stayed at Inks Lake) - then a longer trip out West later this year (before the Winter sets in).

Making arrangements to have a Weight Distribution/Equalizer Hitch put on the GMC 1500, along with a Brake Controller (have seen where Prodigy (2or3) is recommended) - but any further advise would be appreciated.

Looking forward to reading and learning.....Bill & Monica (& Sake, Sushi, Kobe)

to the forums! Great idea with house camping as it can be a good way with getting to know your trailer.

Recommend taking good notes and insisting on a good inspection (pdi) when you pick up the trailer next week.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

yep, thank you both for the welcomes.. I've downloaded what appears to be a good PPI checklist - and - I'm familiar with the systems because of the previous Roadtrek ownership.....Bill
