Bringing home a 29IKTS
1 Attachment(s)
Well this is my first forray into the RV world. Going to pick it up this morning and get the walkthrough. A little overwhelmed with everything that is needed to learn. We spend a lot of time with my girlfriend's daughter at rodeo barrel races so this will be much more comfortable for 3 day events. We have a lot of experience pulling trailers so thats not going to be an issue. If people have any newbie tips on setup or dry camping they will be greatly appreciated. I purchased two honda eu2000i generators for power. Sleeping in it tonight at the farm for a shakedown and taking it to the rodeo this weekend for the maiden voyage.

Just put a deposit down on mine. Let me know what you think. We are very excited to be getting it.

Hope it went well - we bought a 832ikbs and haven't used it yet can't wait - week in July & one in Aug and then a few long weekends. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum. Remember to be conseritive when dry camping unless you have access to dumping. Is your air a 15,000BTU unit. May be a stretch on the gen. :signhavefun: Later RJD :trink39:

Well after are first 2 weekend trips heres a list of the items that broke. I have to admit I am a little disappointed in several of them.

-Front exterior storage compartment screws pulled out. Door had to be duct taped on to make it home.
-Fuse blew on front and rear stabilizers going half way down. Used the manual crank to lower and raise
-Drawer under stove won't stay closed. Needs new track
-Neither metal support straps on the dumps were attached to the frame. Can't believe the pipe didnt crack on transport

So far pretty underwhelmed on the build quality the sales staff told me went into this trailer.

Sorry for your minor issues, trust me there's units with worse problems!
Get it to the dealer, get them fixed and go camping!
