Day one with our new trailer...

Well, here we are on Whidbey Island after picking up our trailer yesterday. All went smoothly, all systems seem to be functioning as they should!
The orientation was great, had several chats with Reace, who helped with hitch advice. In the end we decided to go with no fancy hitch and see how it goes. What a great guy, he basically said, hey, much as I'd love to sell you one, you most likely won't need it...so we can always add later if need be. Wonderful to work with such a great company. We had about a 2-3 hour trip here, and seemed to tow fine.
So far am happy with choices, only thing I am wondering about is the drawer I had them add under the closet. Closet is pretty small as it is, so maybe shouldn't have done that, we'll see....can live with it....solar is all charged up, although were plugged in. Love the LED lights, the bed is very comfortable, and it's nice to relax for a couple of days and not to drive.
Friday we leave for Sequim, also at friends house, who have full hookups, 30amp, dump station, so we'll be able to fully test more stuff....
More later....Karen

When taking photos with an iPhone, hold the phone in landscape mode (horizontally) with the shutter button to the right, not the left. If it's to the left, and you upload the photo to a website or forum, the metadata that orients the picture correctly on the phone will be stripped, and the photo will flip upside down.

Looks great, Karen. You must have ordered the anti-gravity option.

Here you go. Nice 19! Congratulations.

Regarding the closet, everyone camps differently, but for us, we don't have "hanging up" clothes when camping. So, since we fold them, we nixed the closet and installed shelves so we could use it for something far more useful - a pantry. Something to consider?
