Travelling Texas

Newbie from the Coastal Bend

Greetings from sunny South Texas! I actually don't have my trailer yet, but I'm about to pull the trigger on a brand new Rockwood 2104s. The Murphy bed option is what sold me. While we will use it for recreation of course, it's primary function will be for hurricane evacuation. I've done tons of research and lurking on this very helpful forum and the 2104s should be perfect for my small family.
I'll be pulling it with my new Nissan Frontier, which I know is pushing the practical towing limit for a mid-sized truck, but the trailer's max weight is still within 80% of the Frontier's towing capacity. I also plan on adding a Blue Ox SwayPro hitch and Prodigy P3 for the brakes. We don't plan on boon-docking and we can travel light so I should stay within the truck's CGVW; just in case I'm going to get my whole rig weighed so I can be sure to stay safe and legal. Fortunately the mountains are one thing that aren't bigger in Texas! If we decide to do any serious travelling, a TV upgrade will definitely be a priority.
I hope to give as much to this forum as I get from it, I belong to many similar online communities and have found them to be an invaluable resource for information. Thanks for welcoming me!
