New trailers

Wow, we camped with Jon and The Reddog at Niagara Falls last weekend and today they both settle on new 21's. Must have been something in that Canadian rain. Or the fact they looked at one that was 11 days old that was at the rally. Course as hard as it rained there, a good solid fiberglass roof was no doubt looking good to all of us. Congrats to both, I know you've made good choices.
Dave.

We ordered ours on 4/1, but is was a big treat to see Peter and Nancy's 2017 21' up close and personal before submitting our final sheet.

Yay!

What's your completion date?

Ours recently got changed to Dec 12th from the 28th, however we didn't get an email to that effect, so there isn't any penalty in that I'm hauling stuff up there today after the date it was supposed to be turned in. (I found out, by accident, on Sept 14th it had been moved up, even though it had changed on the 6th. )

So, in less than 5 hours our build sheet should be finalized as well!

Party time for all of us, huh?

Our original completion date was Jan 5th, but it was moved earlier to Dec. 22nd. we will have to wait until after Christmas and New Years Day to start our trip up.

It's a great day for you today! Conga-Rats on finalizing your build sheet!!!

Thanks to both of you and thanks for showing us your rig to confirm our choice of Formica. Also, you validated using the idea of using Bluetooth to feed the tv signal to our Bose speaker. We started using that setup since the Niagara Rally and I believe it will keep things nice and tidy.

By the way... Can you tell me once again the name of your TV/DVD combo and what size screen you have?

Hi Fred, we had a great time at the falls.
This is the TV we bring: "NAXA NTD-2252 22-Inch Widescreen Full 1080p HD LED TV with Built-in Digital TV Tuner and USB/SD Inputs and DVD Player." The link is: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. We paid $197.
The Naxa speakers are not very good so we use this bluetooth transmitter in the headphone jack to a bluetooth speaker: "Bluetooth Transmitter, TaoTronics Wireless Portable Transmitter (Connected to 3.5mm Audio Devices, Paired with Bluetooth Receiver. TV Ears, Bluetooth Dongle, A2DP Stereo Music Transmission)"
It's link is:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1, $28.
Both from Amazon.
Charlie

Getting close !

Charlie and Lucy,
We are almost ready to pull the trigger on our build sheet ! Had the 5th wheel hitch that you sold me installed yesterday.
Our nephew and family from Arizona is staying with us for a few days and they were taking a walk on Drakes Island Beach when they noticed a trailer parked in the lot down there that sounded like the one that we were ordering so they took a picture... Small world! I don't know who's rig it is, but you may. Hope you are well. We look forward to the day that our 5.0TA is parked alongside your's in some beautiful location.

Charlie and Susie
