Hello From SE PA

My wife and I just purchased our first camper. We are the proud owners of a new HFS-24 Hyper Lite toy hauler. Planning on putting the Harley in the back and doing some traveling. We didn't want a big trailer because we have a new Ford F-150 and we love the truck. This trailer is well within our towing capacity.
We did a little trip to Gettysburg this past weekend just to feel things out. Had a great time. Did learn that when you pick the stabilizers up you should have the wheels on both sides chocked. That part I will remember.
This is all new to us, so I plan on reading your advice and maybe a question now and then. Thanks in advance.

Welcome. I too watch my towing limits as I plan to live longer and not impact other lives. My wish for you, is that your leaning boo boo's be small and cheap. Good luck!

Welcome from Lebanon County PA.

I always make sure to chock the wheels anytime the camper is unhitched and don't remove the chocks until it is hitched to the TV.
