First Travel trailer!

Hi all from St. Louis, Mo.
We just brought home a new 2021 Apex 265RBSS on 5/17 and really excided to get on the road. This model is a bit closer than I wanted on payload but the wife loved it so I figured buy before she changes her mind!
It tows it very well and safely so figured I could always upgrade my truck later....
I will be retiring in 3 years so this will definitely work until then and help decide what we want later.

Welcome from the Pacific Northwest, where it is cool this morning.
We tow a Surveyor 251rks with a Ram 2500 diesel, and made our first trip last week after sitting for 2 years.
This is a great source for answers to questions.

I always did like that camper. The bathroom is to die for. I would have loved to buy that one but we bought a bunkhouse because we have an 11-year-old and my wife wanted the extra permanent sleeping areas and storage it provided.

First time RVing here. We bought a Arctic Wolf limited 3770 suite and a 2019 Silverado 3500 to to cut. Weve never hauled something this big but what the heck just do it right lol. We are a family of 5 and this will be interesting.

Welcome, Neighbor

Welcome from Lake Saint Louis.
We were new to this when we bought our RPOD, and this forum helped us learn about the life of pulling a trailer. People have been great sharing information. Should something come up that I can help, send me a message.

Thanks all. Really looking forward to the first trip with it. After the first practice level ..in the rain to boot I decided to order the levelmate pro. That with the Anderson levelers should make life easier. I think UPS has been at our house everyday since we bought this!

You will find most all you didn’t know, & didn’t know was important, for camping & towing here. No joke.
Congrats & welcome.
