Picking up my first fifth wheel tomorrow.
 
Thought I'd introduce myself, I'm Steve and have been in the camping world for 12 years now, I started out with a 2002 Springdale TT and while it's been a good faithful friend it's time to move on.

In the morning I'm trading the Springdale in on a Sierra 346RETS fifth wheel, we did the orientation today and tomorrow they're installing my hitch. Rather not say what I'm pulling with if that's OK.

Anyhow I've looked around here a good bit over the last week and looks like it's a good crowd here, thanks for having me!

Congrats on your purchase. You won't regret going to a 5th wheel, just hope your secret vehicle isn't a half ton:eek:

Congrats on the 5th wheel. I Got one last year and I love it nice to pull. :thumbsup:

Beautiful camper!

But you know, secretes don't make friends and friends don't make secrets!

Where are you located? Maybe we will run into you!?

Welcome from us in NE Georgia. We also moved from TT to 5ver last year. Bought a 330 MKS by Prime Time. Love it. You will love the 5ver.

Haha, not a half ton but loaded for bear I estimate I'll be about 500lbs over my max GCVWR. I don't want a ticket from the weight police, not until I drive it across the scale this afternoon at least. :) Luckily there's a truck scale a few miles from my house.

Empty I'm golden though.

Did forget to mention, I'm in Georgia, about 45 miles south of Atlanta.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I'm on my way to get it in about an hour!

good that you are going to weight it so you know exactly where you stand, but only accurate measurement will be loaded as if you were going camping, family and all. Stay safe.:signhavefun:
