Welcome we upgraded from popup to a Palimino Solaire 190x last august we love it, they are much nicer to be in when the weather is bad out. I originally wanted the the shamrock 23ss but there was none available close to us at the time to visit. We found ours 15 minutes from our home. You will love camping with a hybrid you get the advantages of a travel trailer but you get that nice air flow when you put down all the panels in the bunks like the popups. We are still buried in snow right now but we are getting anxious to get out camping for the season. All the best with your new purchase you will get lots of enjoyment with it

Just finished 9 weeks of Fl camping with the wife in our 2014 Shamrock 183... 3 bunk floorplan we bought last May in Indy. We luv it especially compared to the popup we used for the three previous years we have gone to FL for the winter.

One thing I had done before dragging it long distances was to take off the wheels and have them balanced at the local Goodyear dealer. The camper pulled much smoother after I did that.

During the last trip home from FL, (I live south of Cincinnati) I used a laser pointer heat temp guage to measure tire and drum brake temps at fueling stops. I consistantly had one brake drum about 20-30 degrees hotter than all the others, so I am thinking I am going to have to pull the wheels and inspect the brakes next month when the weather stays warm. I have never done this on a TT but I fell I am savvy enough to deal with any problems I might encounter... especially with help from forum members.

I put on two coats of wax last summer and purchased some Dicor RV caulk and touched up any questionable factory applied caulk. This summer I am going to make the PVC pipe rain guards I have read about on this forum to prevent any rain infiltration at the bunk tops. I am also going to apply UV protection spray using 303 brand on the vinyl bunk tops.

I am drying and inspecting (we closed up in foggy weather) the bunks ends today because of the sun being out and not raining, and I am finding that other then some dirty spots on the vinyl, everything seems to be in top shape even after being deployed continuously about 68 days.

So far I am pleased with my FR hybrid TT purchase and I hope you have the same experience.

Just wondering...did you buy from Colerain? We purchased our 23ikss last year from them last year. The staff there was great , service has been excellent, and we have been very satisfied.
