Delivery and shakedown trip

Got to meet Dave and crew Thursday last week when they delivered my 21' Classic. Delivery to TN via TX to drop-off another camper. Sent them next door to Italian restaurant for dinner after delivery. 21' and Ford F150 are truly a great combo; no WDH needed with 3 day trip to Defeated Creek Campground for 1st outing. Encountered no problems at all and everything about the 21' was as expected or better. Love it and the U dinette. Still trying to decide where to put camping gear--so much storage room. 1st mod was installation of Oxygenics Fury hand held shower completed on Tuesday. More to come.

Titanizer,
There are two other 21' owners in Tennessee in the Chattanooga area.
We would be glad to confer anytime, and look forward to meeting you sometime.

Sounds like a Middle TN rally should be planned soon.

Greg and Teresa,
Watching you back up would be part of the entertainment for the rally?

And that is my fear

I know it's crazy, but I occasionally wake up in the middle of night worrying about that very thing. And yes, I know, we've all been there at some point. But still...

Don't worry - when the line of tow vehicles waiting to get by gets long enough, someone will hop out & park it for you. Just another thing to heighten the anxiety!

Then again, if you park it yourself & look like a first timer, you may get a round of applause...

Borrow or rent a utility trailer and get some practice! After dragging around a Uhaul for 24 hours you'll feel a lot better about it. Set out a few plastic buckets on a big parking lot to get started.
