Hello from Missouri - Toy Hauler All American

Just purchased a used 2008 All American toy hauler. We pick it up on Tuesday. We are life long campers. The new purchase means saying good bye (when we find a buyer) to a great 1987 Excel 5th wheel. Still in good condition and going strong. Just time to upgrade and make room for the growing family. Need more room to share the love of camping with the grandkids. Any tips about our new purchase would be very welcomed.

The Stevens

Hi and welcome to the FR Forums! Be sure to do a detailed pdi before leaving the lot. Check everything out and takes good notes.

Sure others will be posting more suggestions.


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

Hello, and to the forums. Hope you enjoy the stay, and learn a lot, and can teach others what you already know. Can't help, but do have a toy hauler myself. You will find on here it's kind of like being the Maytag repairman, it can get lonely. Lots of good other info relating to camping though. Glad to have you.

Thank you for the tip. We have a 2-3 hour orientation before we bring her home.
