Hello to all, brought home my 8287ss today

Can't wait to hit the road with this thing, my daughter loves the "camping machine" my wife and I are very excited to be RVing again. And I'm glad we got back into a new to us unit from Rockwood.

I've been reading a few threads here trying to get a feel for what other owners have to say.

It's my first 5er, though I tow a trailer at least three or four days a week and have driven goosenecks, and just about every other type you can think of. It was great to get the hitch on and see how my truck pulls this trailer, it is stable, and easy to handle. I'm looking forward to hitting the road and going somewhere fun. Nice to see a few other RV nuts like me out there.Click image for larger version

Hope to see many of you on the road, in the park or hanging round here.
