Hi Everyone,

I just joined yesterday after my wife and I purchased a 2019 Forest River Wildwood Heritage Glen 272rl. The trailer was bought in Fort Worth, TX and hauled back home to Oregon.

The trip was quite an adventure, running into quarter\half-dollar sized hail as soon as we hit Texas (denting my 2010 Ford F350 that I had owned a week). The next day heading out of Texas we outran an absolutely HUGE tornado right into massive thunderstorms and high winds.

Fortunately, the truck and trailer survived mostly intact with the exception of the bodywork on the truck and a missing wheel well trim piece that was lost when a trailer tire exploded at speed.

Still working on figuring out the operation of the trailer (the previous owner seems to have lost all documentation), but it's going fairly well so far. Hoping to take it out for the second time this coming weekend.

Best Regards,
Larry and Tammi
