Hello from Central California

Hi everyone.
My wife and I just purchased our first new, but second overall, trailer...a 2016 Rockwood Windjammer 3006WK.
My wife and I are both teachers, she teacher elementary school, I teach high school psychology and culinary arts. I am a classically trained chef as well. We have two kids, a son 14 and a daughter 12.

I look forward to picking your brains and learning all I can.

Thanks,
Chef

Welcome from TX. Looked at the floorplan on your new Windjammer. That should serve your family well.

Being a chef, did the outdoor kitchen influence your choice?

Do you have a 1st trip planned?

What are you towing with?

Thanks everyone.
We live in the city of Turlock, CA
Turlock is near Modesto, and sits almost center between Fresno, Sacramento, and San Francisco.
Our first trip besides the quick weekend trips will be a 14 day excursion to the Grand Canyon, Vegas, and anywhere in between.

My tow rig is a 2001 F-350, 7.3 ltr diesel, 4x4, 6" lift and leveled.
Picking up trailer today along with the Blue Ox Sway Pro system.

We are taking the trailer out to a campground about 1 hour from here to test everything out. Fingers crossed.
Also, the outdoor kitchen had no impact in the decision to buy this trailer. Kids loved trailer, wife loved trailer, in-laws loved trailer, I liked trailer.
Happy wife = Happy Life

Chef

Hello and welcome from former Sacramento residents now in northern Arizona since 2003. We're only 2 hours s/w of the Grand Canyon; wave hello as you drive by the Prescott exit on I40!
Congrats on the new trailer! We looked at the Windjammers at the last RV show we went to and really liked them; not that we can afford anything else just yet nor do we really want to as we really love our Surveyor.
Happy Camping!
