g'day from oz

Hi there, the missus and I have recently purchased what will be our future home on wheels. We've got ourselves a 2008 Forest River 32' Wildwood with 2 slide outs.
Why so big? well we have a 12 year old daughter and we need some space.

We ended up buying a Isuzu frr500 truck to tow it, plus the missus's little car goes on the back.

I am in the process of towing it across Australia ~3750 km from where we purchased it to where we live.

We are prity happy with it, though there are a few bits we need to repair and replace. after all it is 5 years old and has been lived in.

Expect many question etc.

thanks,
Johnny.

Welcome from NC and congratulations. Looks like the hitch needs to be lowered to level the trailer while towing. NICE setup!
