Decision made

After much pondering, Mark and I have ordered our 2018 17a. Ready in June, so excited. After years of tenting, this feels like luxury. We owned a t@b last summer, but just a little too much like a toaster! Mark being 5'10" he could not quite sleep flat out. Gets to you after awhile. Really appreciate the information on the Forum, learning a great deal.

Sweet! Picking up my 17A tomorrow - just a little bit excited. Do a search on my previous 17A questions if you want a boatload of info for your build sheet - ha ha

Thank you all for the votes of confidence about getting the "a" it just makes sense for us, and gives us more space. Will absolutely be gleaning as much info as we can before the build sheet is due, much appreciated. What a welcome!

Congratulations!!! You are going to camp in luxury from now on, which you both will love!
It's so nice every one can pick the trailer and options that work best for them! Have "fun" with the build sheet! And who knows we will meet some day...

Our paths may just cross! Tennessee.... that happens to also be a must-see state for us. Will you come up to Chilliwack to pick up your 5.0? (Good taste in vehicles, btw )
