Hello from Northern California

Greetings from Tom and Karen. We are not new to RVing, were even full timers for a couple of years back in the late 80's. Have been out of the game for a while, but now that we are both retired (finally) we're ready to get back into it.

Picked up our 2014 Surveyor Sport 220 in late January. Took a two week trip to the coast in February, and plan a one week trip to a nearby lake this month. Some boondocking and some hookup just to test things out. So far only a few minor glitches that the dealer has made right. Have been really happy with this TT.

We have been enjoying all the great info this site has to offer - thanks to you all! Here are some pics of our set-up. I'm new to photobucket so I hope this works.

Best regards, T&K

Congratulations on the new Surveyor. I recognized the back ground in your photos, "Granzellas". We stop there often.

Welcome!

Very nice TT. What's the weight capacity on the rear carrier?

Thanks Chuckinca. The sticker says 200 lbs plus spare tire, and since the spare on this TT is mounted underneath between the frame, I would guess the rack would hold around 250 lbs.

Kaboom - yes, any time we are passing by on I-5, Granzellas is a must stop. Great sandwiches
