new guy from illinois.

looking at a 2012 31 rets 6 5ver. first 5th, and hoping i like it. been lurking the past few weeks while we looked at others, and really like what we saw/found. seems well built and equipped compared to others.

will post pics when we get it, provided it hasnt sold yet. was still there today on my way to work, but wasnt able to get by there.

picked up 5th wheel sat afternoon. spent sunday repacking stuff, but im sure it will be moved again as we go. i just wanted it out of the garage and where it belonged (in the camper).

looking forward to our first weekend out. i got the slider hitch over the salesmans objections that i wouldnt need it, and so far i havent. but time will tell. pulls like a dream even tho heavier than the tt we traded.

i do believe we are going to enjoy it much more as their is more spread out room.
