First time TT owners

Just purchased a 2014 Coachmen Catalina Santara 192SD this summer. We have loved every minute we have spent using it so far. The only issues we have had appear to have been user error on my part. We started small with our first trailer and very green in our knowledge. Any secrets of the trade are always appreciated!

Congrats on your new camper.

I have not too much to add other than to say take it easy on the stuff. It is RV grade and is not as rugged as what you may be used to within your house.

Congratulations and welcome from SW Idaho.


Only trick to it is to try and not have to much fun.

4 MAJOR things not to forget when pulling out of camp:

1. Shore power cord and water hoses disconnected
2. Steps retracted
3. light check
4. Wife in tow vehicle!

That would depend on who is in charge/possession of the money?



Some CG's have been known to charge extra for anything returned to your home addy.
