Why wait? Start the season now! The trailer looks good, so does the truck! Looks setup level and ready to roll!

Happy camping. Go now. We're camping and it snowed last night again, just a little. Happy not to be home.

Is there anything you dont like about the 8280? We have not used it yet but all i can see is the bedroom. i would have liked to see the bed in the wardrobe slide to make more room but those floor plans are too heavy for my truck. I am sure it will be fine though.

Nothing I don't like....But I've been known to rearrange....Lol.....First thing I'd, would to be putting outside landing gear and rear stabilizer switches in a JR Products compartment....They don't seem to like bad weather. I also hard plumbed the kitchen holding tank into the front dump area and use a valve to stop flow from it.....Now don't have to get under slide...
