Hello from New Orleans area

Hello, new owner of a Surveyor SP295. My first TT was purchased to because my stepson plays club soccer & hotel rooms get expensive. I truly didn't think I would end up using a camper as much as we do. Since we have already purchased the unit does anyone have any user tips for the Surveyor Sport models? Thanks.

I think after camping for some time you MAKE excuses to go camping !!!!!!!!
While I cant help you with the particulars on your make and model for the most part there relatively the same.

Although, I don't have your model camper, there are lot's of things common to all travel trailers. Just take your time and browse around the forums....and always feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Had a 2005 Surveyor 291 Ultralite. Towed well with a 1500 ram truck. Only problem I had was blacktank smell. Cleared up after installing Cyclone Vent on blacktank vent pipe. Welcome to camping. Campers are great people. Most are willing to help and will answer questions. Hope you have fun.
