Good morning from Wisconsin

We've rented RVs annually for the last 7 years. We also own an older pop up that doesn't owe us anything. We finally decided that it was time to make the plunge and yesterday made the down payment on a 2013 Surveyor 220. Never thought we would own a travel trailer. Always thought our first purchase would be a 5th wheel. But we have a 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a lot of life left in it so it seemed like the thing to do. Now the TT is going to sit in storage at the dealer til next April. It's gonna be a long winter.

to the forum from another Wisconsinite and congrats on your 2013 Surveyor 220. Yup, it's going to be a long winter. Plenty of time to plan your maiden voyage in the new camper.

Hello and welcome aboard!
I see a Wisconsin theme forming here...I was born in Wisconsin but I live in SoCal. Congrats on your new travel trailer! I really love my TT so I'm sure you will have lots of fun too.

Take care,

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