Hey there -
Wife and I just put down deposit on 2017 Shamrock 233S. After doing research and physically looking at numerous makes and models this seemed to check all of our boxes and just as important (in our opinion) the dealer's reputation, customer service and general attitude was what we were looking for. Customer service, GOOD customer service that is, seems to be in less and less supply in any industry nowadays, but that is something my wife and I value very much.
This is our first TT, (I think I am using the correct acronym here) - need to do some more research on that.
it's more than what we originally had thought we wanted to spend, but that seems to be the case more and more with anything now...but we're comfortable with the choice and confident in the decision - no buyers remorse. I'm of the opinion you get what you pay for, while I don't spend money just for the sake of it, I think the quality and craftsmanship on this TT is solid. I believe if you take care of things, they'll take care of you...so looking for many years of enjoyment in this. We're located in Central Indiana so we're looking at doing mostly weekends/long weekends in state and venturing 4-5 hours to surrounding states. We've gotten SO MANY recommendations of great places in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and so on - very excited to start knocking them off our list.
We're getting to that age where the kids are grown and Mom & Dad can start to have our getaways either alone or with friends - we have awesome friends we love spending time with - we're thinking, we provide the sleeping and they provide the water fun (pontoon, etc.) Done lots of tent camping/backpacking in the past, which has been great, but thinking this is going to be much easier on my aging body and more enjoyable as we go.
We're looking forward to this next adventure of being TT owners, meeting new people and enjoying the lifestyle. We're a little nervous too, but that's okay - we'll learn as we go and regardless, we make the best of any situation we're put in - kind of our thing!
no matter what you're doing.
I am kind of a research nerd so I'm making my list of questions for the tech when we do our walkthrough/inspection, pouring over websites and this forum for lists of "must-haves" "do/don'ts" on and on and on.
So, any suggestions you have that may not pop in my "research" feel free to chime in. Looking forward to becoming a contributing member of the forum and learning along the way.
