Feeling the Vibe

Hello all, we recently purchased our first TT this past spring. Picked up a new Vibe 6504. I grew up camping and thought it was time for our girls to experience it as well. So far so good three trips this year for a total of 8 nights, and no major issues! Going to try and squeeze in one more trip soon.

I look forward to spending some time here and learning all I can from you professional campers. I've been a member for a couple of months now so I've gotten familiar with the site....lurking I guess you call it!

This is a pic from our 2nd trip which was at Hungry Mother SP in VA.

The jack scrapes a little but other than that yeah...LOL! TV is actually a Sierra and no it's not the best pulling camper. Without the friction sway bar tightened more than it should be the camper is like a fly swatter swaying behind....kinda of unnerving really.

Hungry Mother is a nice park we enjoyed it. Camped at Burson, which seemed more pleasing to us than the spots inside the park. Planning on going back next year. 30 some outlaws I mean in-laws were there so it was a good time and plenty of good food!

I have a v-nose too, a little longer and heavier than yours. I added a second friction sway bar to my set up. Works a lot better. It will do until Uncle Sam sends me some "stimulus" money for a better hitch.

Supposedly to get the e-2 wdh on they have to take the trailer off frame?? Factory is putting them on now prior to delivery....must be others with this problem? I don't know, but I'm going to keep what I got and think about the wdh right now.

What part of WV you from, we're in Beckley.

I should have known better than getting a single axle, with all the storage in the back of the camper. We put as much gear in front and truck bed as possible. Still learning may go with the 2nd friction bar couldn't be any worse!
