We get weekends off and needed a getaway so we bought the TT. We use to have a 57' houseboat during good times but we sold it when the Housing market turned bad. So we did do allot of camping but is was on the ST Johns River in Florida.
Welcome! While we are now in a fiver that a delivery service handles for us at Pismo Beach (we are 2 1/2 hours away and use it as our weekend beach house), we started with (and still have) a Coleman Tacoma TT...love it! Backing was a challenge at first, but it gets easy quickly...the main thing for me was that early on, I was so paranoid about keeping the TT shiny and ding free, I dinged the TV more than once angling the TT into the spots! Wife was unhappy about it, but truth be told, much rather have a ding on the TV than on the TT! Best of luck with the new toy!!!
