Arrow New Escapee...I'm SO excited!

Well, we've now owned our 19' new "baby" for almost 23 hours now, and I am in love!
After 5 days of US 90W, and traveling down lonely, deserted sections of the Midwest, it's so nice to have a "home" to go to while traveling. So, that's bennie #1.

Bennie #2-- Sarah, Tammy, Reace, Erin, Mike, & Dennis were wonderful! Kind, attentive; no question was too insignificant or silly.

The overall welcoming feeling there added to the positive vibe throughout this entire experience over the past year. It also created a comfortable level of trust for us, along with personal assurance that we were purchasing a stellar travel trailer with support, backing, and pride from the manufacturers. (#3).

Bennie #4 -- I finally got to meet Sarah in person; I'm sure most of you have dealt with her over the phone, or in person at some point. Isn't she a gem?

So! Here's a few photos of our "baby", perched on the waterfront of Whidbey Island NAS. Gorgeous, serene, and scenic views right out our front door.

We'll check all of the systems before leaving the area...both for any operating issues, but mostly so we can figure out how to properly operate everything.

Bennie #5 -- I really appreciate all of the kind advice and assistance from forum members along the way...thank you so much!

I'll try to post a few experiences along with "shoulda" bought this, or "didn't need that", etc. Perhaps it will help someone else!

Congrats on picking up your trailer, you have every right to be excited.

I have got to have cocktails at a picnic table with Sarah. She did good there too.

And, who is this Bennie you keep refering to?
