Hi, jjwelliver!

I am new to these forums as of today myself. I hope you enjoy your new trailer! We are planning our first trip out in our first trailer a week from now. Have fun!

Congrats on your 2013 Surveyor SV 304. One piece of advice I can give is to go camping and enjoy your new trailer.

Congrats on your new TT! My suggestion would be to keep things simple while you develope your camping style. It's so easy to buy everything you think you might need only to find out otherwise. Campground neighbors are pretty friendly especially if you have questions or need help.

Happpy Camping!
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Welcome from an ex-pat Brit up in the top LH corner. We're in our thrid season with our Georgetown and jsust love the lifestyle. We're just back from a 2-week trip down the Oregon Coast from Astoria through Brookings to Crescent City CA.

Weather was less than ideal, but we had a ball. Just a couple of not-to-good CGs, which I'll post in the approriate place.

Another welcome from the top LH corner. We are out on our first major trip in our 2004 Georgetown.

Best advice is do a couple of short trips first to get used to the rig, handling, set up, etc. We are still learning things and gaining confidence all of the time. Have not used some features like the awning yet. That will come with time, probably in Bryce or S Cal.

We had a good start on supplies since we moved up from a small TT.
