New 2014TBSS Owner

Hello fellow campers,
We just got back into trailer camping after several years of on and off tenting. Sold our old Terry Taurus several years ago. Forest River seems to be a good company so we went with the 26TBSS. Will be picking it up June 11. Next on the list is a tow vehicle. Looking at a Chevy Silverado 2500HD tomorrow. That should tow this without much trouble. Had a '96 2500 GMC Suburban with the 454ci engine and had no problem with the Terry. Hope to be camping by June 12th!
See you 'round the campfire!

Welcome!

I'm curious what made you get away from RVs, and what made you get back into it?

What state are you located in? Unless you are in Oregon I probably won't see you around the campfire anytime soon!

Our 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD has over 200,000 miles on it and is still going strong. Hope whatever you find works as well for you. Welcome back to the RV community!

Hi,
Well the main reason we went back to tenting was because I couldn't afford to pull the Terry anymore. Gas was a little over $4 a gallon and heading up at the time. The Suburban had a 42 gallon tank and $200 a fill up was more than I could afford! We decided to take our family vacations on the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a few years. But we missed the camping with the trailer so we are back now.
Just got the tow vehicle today, 2015 Silverado 1500 LT Z71. Nice truck, just hope it does the job.
We're in CT, so maybe we could meet halfway sometime!

Thanks KateE and Sunseekers. We actually just made plans for June 11 and 12 in VT. Taking our Greyhound with us so that should be fun!

Well the maiden voyage went great with our new (to us) Wildwood camper. VT was beautiful as was the campground. The truck hauled the TT up and down the Green Mountains with very little strain. Kept it at 55-60 mph. Gas mileage averaged 9-10 mpg. Didn't think it would be any better in VT. I had purchased the Equalizer anti- sway bars and had no issues with that even when being passed by tractor trailers. Our next trip will be to Gloucester, MA. Happy camping!
