Midwest newbie!

Did the tent thing forever, moved into a pop-up when the daughter was small. Had a tear-drop and that was great for me alone on my kayaking trips, but the time had come to "grow-up". After a lot of research and several fun visits to dealers we decided on the 2012 Surveyor Sport SP 240. My daughter is now a senior in college and I get to pay her last tuition bill in January. At this stage, I don't see my wife and I living in this, but do want to do a lot of week or two week long trips - thinking this is the right size for us. These things look very well designed and built, but that is from my untrained eye. I'm sure we'll learn a lot along the way - such is life. Thought I should introduce myself because I anticipate me asking a bunch of questions about places to go and how to back this thing up - even though I could do pretty well with the tear-drop and I've heard rumors that something bigger is actually easier??!!

I pick her up next Thursday - already planning a 3 hour practice tow down to see the folks.

Peace, Perry

The more distance between the tow vehicle rear axel and the trailer axels, the easier it is to back up.
I cant back up my 2 place snowmobile trailer to save my life, but my 26 foot overall, boat and camper is real easy.

Congrats on the purchase and enjoy
