Hello from Ontario Canada

Hi all, my name is Kevin and I live just outside of Ottawa Ontario, Canada's capital city. My wife and I are new to both the forum and the trailer world. We have both tent camped for most of our lives, but now that I am in my forties, I find sleeping on the ground in a tent is just too uncomfortable on my hips.
In October we bought a Viking 17FQ. We had originally been looking at the R-pod 179 but being 6'5 the bed was a little too small for me and the bathroom just didn't work. With the Viking, I can't stand up completely straight, which I don't seem to do most of the time anyway, but the island bed and big bathroom are awesome and so is all the counter space in the kitchen.
I have been reading the forum for some time now and I have learned a lot, but I still have some questions I will be posting soon.
Cheers and all the best for the new year!
