Greetings from WARM Alaska

Hello all,

My wife and I are jumping in with "both feet" as I see many others have done. We are planning on ordering our trailer in April and wanted to talk with those who are already doing this. The plan is to travel the lower 48 for a year (or so) then buy land and build our last house. So we are looking at living in the trailer for 2 straight years.
I am looking at the XLR Hyper Lite 30HFS5 and would appreciate any input on the trailer.
Glad this site is here and glad to be a member.

Welcome to the FR Forum from a fellow Alaskan!

Sorry I don't have any experience with the XLRs. But we have been pretty happy with our Cedar Creek.

Good luck on your travels... and let us know when and where you find a better place to call home other than AK.

Welcome to the forum! I jumped in with both feet when I brought my TT and haven't looked back yet. There's lots of good reading here on the forums.

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