Hello everyone!

The better half and I are new to the larger RV camper world, once owning an Aliner until just a week ago. We purchased a Shockwave T21FS toy hauler from Mike Thompson's RV in L.A. while on vacation. Wasn't really in the market at the time, but the camper was a perfect fit for us, so we took the plunge. We are looking forward to learning more about this new lifestyle from all the great people that frequent this forum.

Welcome to the forum, and isn't that just how it works.

Wife and I had a trailer we were perfectly happy with, and has the intent of keeping it for years. Then I got on the internet one Sunday afternoon, and saw one on our dealer's website that looked . . . well, you know the rest of that story!

Come Monday morning, we made the 125 mile drive, and were standing in that model by 9:30. Signed the papers at 10:00! So it goes!
