New 233s Roo

We brought home our new 233s Roo on Feb. 15. We live in Michigan but 3 of our kids slept in it one of the "warmer" nights out in the driveway.

I have already learned so much from these forums..... the 2nd year warranty, that we need to purchase a surge protector, etc.

I CANNOT wait for Spring!

One note, we cannot permanently store the trailer at our house because of our homeowner's association so we took the trailer to the new storage place which has dirt roads/gravel spots and there was ice/snow in our spot. Being newbies, we didn't call ahead to make sure our spot was clear. I wanted to just drive back home but my husband thought it would be fine. BUT it wasn't fine and we got stuck in the snow and ice. We tried for over an hour along with the help from the man working at the storage place to get unstuck. Then I remembered reading about free roadside assistance with our purchase. Found the number on a sticker in the camper and called! The tow truck was there in less than 15 minutes... kind of embarrassing but we were very pleased with the quick service we got.

Here's hoping our first official outing will go a little smoother!

Thanks. Am I remembering correctly from reading other posts that you are a Disney World lover?

Ah yes, we are a Disney (and Fort Wilderness) loving family, though my dh will deny it. LOL We're going the last week on October. We go every other year.

I am sure I will be asking you a lot of advice...assuming that is ok.
We love Disney. The last years we have gone in Sept. for their free dining promotion but now that we have the trailer, we want to stay at Fort Wilderness. Hopefully, sometime in 2014!
