decision made, commitment made...

OK just did it!! Decided to move on a 19', production date August 15, deposit has been made, it's official!! Planning to pick it up as soon as it's ready and go camping, first time ever for both of us without a tent! We'll be towing it with our new 2017 Chevy Colorado duramax diesel, and I think it will be a great pairing. We're so excited, celebrating with Monday Margaritas tonight!! Whew, feels good to have the decision made, now on to the build sheet .

The information on this forum about tow vehicles, etc. was so very helpful, and I'm very grateful for everyone who posts here. I'm hoping to repay the favor as soon as I get some experience as a new owner!

I can make one that will knock your socks off!! I think the name of our trailer might have to be Tequila Sunrise, or something like it!

You're gonna need an inverter to run the ice crusher off grid.

Naming the Rig

To those who have ever driven White Bird Hill, it would be obvious that she should name her new rig after the Red Simpson classic “Diesel Smoke and Dangerous Curves”. And you can’t buy a better saddle than those that were made by Ray Hole in Grangeville Idaho.

I think you should bring your skills to the osoyoos gathering even though you won't have your trailer by then.

We just picked up our new 21 today! Off to Maui tomorrow so went straight into storage. But as soon as we are back out exploring we will go. Will also be going to the rally. Good times ahead.
