While I am waiting on the truck to arrive I plan on tinkering and accessorizing (surge guard, satellite, battery upgrades to name a few).
Welcome to the forums from...yup, you guessed it, Huntsville, AL!!
Congrats on the new TT it sounds like you chose well!
You are smart too - not only did you buy your "next unit" first, you got REALLY smart and bought a 1T truck!

Ahhh you like to Mod your rig do you? You'll fit right in here! our 5er does not even resemble a stock Rockwood anymore [hint: my last mod was installing a slide out tray in our basement ]

Indeed we do hope ya'll can make it -- we are expecting 0+ rigs this year and perhaps even 40+ -- if ya'll join us, ya'll can make that magic 40 a reality

We are also members of the Cottonpatch Good Sam club, based here in Huntsville. If any of you locals are interested in the Good Sam club, drop me a line. We had a pretty good campout at Blue Heron over last weekend & the Good Sams schedule campouts every month at various places close to Huntsville (Penny - we will be going to Mill Creek in June!)

(Mill Creek was the site of the first BamaGanza FROG Rally)
