Smile First weekend in new camper successful!

Our very first adventure in the new camper is done, and it was GREAT! We were smart, and did a LOT of research beforehand (thanks FR forums and YT), which helped us avoid the common "first-timer" mistakes. Camper life is SOOO much better and more peaceful than our past tent camping experiences. We look forward to many more adventures ahead.

Congrats on the birth of your new RV passion
Looks like the right size TT for your truck, not to big, not too small.

Welcome Arlen and Jill. Always good to see a maiden voyage that went well. Where is that that you stayed? I spent almost 6 years in Omaha in 2 different assignments courtesy of the U.S. Air Force. Met my wife on the first one (from Council Bluffs). Anyway, congrats on the new trailer, the great maiden voyage, and welcome to the good life. Hope to see you down the road!!
