Hello all. Well, I finally took the plunge and in a 2 weeks I will be the proud owner of a Cherokee Lite 255 5th wheel. Hip hip horray. Time to do some planing for the trip.

only 6 more sleeps :-)

Thanks for the welcome guys.

Lol, it is comming it is comming. Tuesday I go in to have the hitch installed and then I pick up the RV later that day. I already scoped out 3 huge industrial parking lots that will be empty on the weekend so I can go practice some backing up, turning, hitching/unhitching, etc. Now I am just looking for a place to park it that is near by so I can practice the rest of the stuff (tanks, running the stove, etc etc). I also scopped out a place to weigh it (about 80km from me but it will give me some practice towing it).

You're really smart! I did my training the hard way and suffered $5K in damage. I was a little too sure of myself the first time out.
By the way, Welcome!!
