Thumbs up Hi From Oregon, New to Fifth Wheeling

My friends call me Hoakieman, My wife and I have run the gamut of camping. We started with a small, shed type tent soon after we were married, later when we moved to Alaska, we upgraded to a16ft travel trailer. Fast forward to the 2000's and we bought an old 20ft motorhome on a Dodge chassis. That didn't last and eventually we purchased a 30 foot Georgie boy. I finally, realized how dumb it was to drive a trailer while towing a car behind! We just purchased a 32 foot 2017 Crusader Lite 28RL with a 2009 Ram 2500 Diesel to pull it.
So far we have only towed it home, But I LOVE IT! The fifth wheel tows like nothing I have ever owned. Now we can take the family, (Our three Shihtzu) on trips to go camping. Anyone else have the Crusader Lite?

Congratulations and welcome to the group. Sounds like you don't need much advice or anything, but if you have any questions, let'em rip! This board is a wealth of knowledge. Heck, yours is probably going to add to it. Again, welcome, and hope to see you down the road!

Well greetings from Alaska, but am now fulltime and currently rolling in Arizona. Welcome to the Forums, lots of knowledge here. Hoakieman where in Alaska have you lived? I have lived in many locations in Alaska.
