2013 LaCrosse 318BHS Touring Edition. The ink is still wet and I pick it up Mother's Day Weekend. I am also building a new house and had the RV connection added to the cleanout as well as the 50A service with dedicated breaker! Can't wait to get it and test it out!

Picked up our Tracer 240 air this weekend. So far impressed with everything. A few little minor fit and finish issues but nothing not easily taken care of. I spent 2 days on mods. PI surge protector installed, LED bulb conversion and a new dual 6v battery tray install. FYI, contrary to another post I made a dual 6v install will NOT fit in 240 original tray. Lastly, what genius decided to put the power and water pump access under the bottom rear bunk? Easily solved by removing the panel in rear storage compartment. Velcro now makes it accessible anytime.

I have the 2013 330MKS. Great rig and it has been perfect so far.

New Camper!!

Just picked ours up yesterday.
New 2013 Tracer 3150-BHD-TE.

After much deliberation about the size of the camper and my current truck (Chevy 5.3 Crew Cab with the max tow package) situation, I decided to pull the trigger. The three-hour ride home from the dealer wasn't bad at all. Also bought a new Equalizer hitch for peace of mind. Truck and hitch performed well. I got about 10 mpg on the way home (southern Michigan). The 5.3L does struggle a bit on the inclines, but I can live with that. I wouldn't want any more of a camper with this truck, though. This thing is freakin huge.

Congratulations!! That is a nice trailer! My wife and I looked at this trailer when we were shopping around and I too was set back a little at the size of it! LOL! I have an 08 F150 with a 9200 tow capacity and I'm sure it would have pulled it ok! We went with the Tracer 2670 which we absolutely love and my truck handles it pretty good on the steep hills here in Utah! Again, Congrats and have fun!

Good Morning!

FINALLY picked up our new Crusader 295RST with our new F250. I can not describe how easy it was! This was our first 5th wheel and to say it is night and day from our previous trailer would be an understatement. Hitching this up, pulling it the two hour trip north to our seasonal site at The Great Divide Campground in Sussex County NJ was so easy. Backing up maneuvering this in to our site and unhitching couldn't have been simpler.
I have to say all the help and advice I received from this forum was incredible. From the trailer to the truck purchase, to the hitch. You guys were great. I only hope I can be of service now to someone else.
Mike,Betty Ann and our pup Nina!

We had a great time but decided to make life easier and up grade. Has anyone used their outdoor kitchen yet? That made the decision for us on the 230fbs.
Happy Camping
We are brand new to camping also, right now our MH is in the shop for minor repair! How was the park? We've been to Garner SP, it was beautiful, we went there twice! Going to Inks lake SP next. We are having a frog rally in Oct. at Buckhorn resort, hope you get to come!

Should be a Lippert Auto-leveling DVD that came with the rig. I've found trial and error to be key in my style of learning...

No second year warranty available from PT at this point... We'll probably choose a Good Sam's Club or similar option as our FR warranty nears completion next March.
