Our first vacation in the new TT will be in Ludington, MI. We hope to do a dry run weekend somewhere closer to make sure we aren't forgetting something.
The 2109s was chosen primarily because:
Our TV (Toyota 4Runner) has a short wheelbase and we had to stick with something close to 20'. Other limitations were the 7K towing limit and the 710 tongue weight limit. We really didn't want to have to buy a new trailer and replace the TV together, especially since the DW would want me to get rid of the 4Runner then and that isn't going to happen as I love that car!
We wanted to keep the length to no more than 25' to give us as many options as possible in site selection.
We wanted a sofa, but not a Murphy bed setup, there are only the two of us and the storage and counter space of the 2109s seemed adequate.
Lastly, I hate towing. I hate squeezing into crowded gas stations, I hate backing up into sites and the longer the unit the more issues I would have to deal with. The 2109s is a good compromise in length, I was able to squeeze into my urban driveway for loading/cleaning. I marvel at those that are able to tow the 30+ foot monsters from A to B and when I watch them park the units at the CC, I am usually thinking, I'm glad I'm not trying to park that! We also love to camp in VA, and we wanted to keep the length reasonable for those mountain road switchbacks.
Thanks for the welcome!
