Newb to the TT thing

Just recently brought home a new Rockwood 2104s. Picking up needed supplies for next weekends first trip, all the way across town to the local KOA. Been Playing around hitching up and and un-hitching, making mistakes and so forth so as not to entertain the other campers too much. I always said I would never go to the dark side of camping until one night I realized after tripping over a rock in the middle of the night to relieve myself that tent camping is the dark side. Old dogs do learn new tricks, it just takes us 61 years. Yes, my first trip is a pull through site.

Nothing wrong with a pull through site. Our first trip was to a KOA where we knew we could probably pick up camping supplies we'd forgotten.

Other campers will be sympathetic because we've all been newbies. You'll find help if you ask.

Welcome to the forum from MN. Deja Vu, we bought our first TT last Oct, and drove straight to a county park 5 miles from home for 2 nights. And yes, it was a pull through site

Welcome to from Louisiana. Upgraded from a popup to a 29' TT in March. Our first long weekend trip was to a local state park. Had to back in but it was an almost straight back from the road. Galveston trip at the end of this month is a pull through site. Just put a backup camera on it for future trips hopefully that will make things go a lot smoother.

WHAT!!! You know I give backing lessons in my spare time at parks in Shreveport (inside joke as me and Jimmie are old friends from geocaching)
