Been lurking here for a while checking out all the great threads on everything. I have no doubt there is a wealth of information here, and everyone seems to be very nice. I'm looking forward to putting all those little custom touches on the 19, I think may have caught some of that tinkeritis

We just returned from our maiden voyage in our brand new 19 this afternoon. Six nights out (first night in Bellingham, second in Winthrop, third/fourth in Chelan, and the coup de gras was two nights in Leavenworth [all WA]) and I'm here to tell you, you'll absolutely LOVE it. Friendly suggestions: Dickinson Spitfire grill w/external propane connection (thanks, Jim Bennett!!, front storage box (sorry, Jim Bennett - convenience has its place in life) and lastly, all of the technical help and advice this forum will provide you as you go forward configuring, operating, maintaining, and customizing your trailer; thanks here to (yes, once again ... ) to Jim Bennett, cpahartley, hot fish tacos, Tammy and Rease, Kim, and scores of others who helped me know how to operate my 19 long before I took possession! And with that, I say "thank you."

P.S. - shame on me for not mentioning Dave and Dennis, the two individuals who actually put the entire 'theoretical' experience together and turned it into a reality that got Mary on our way to a whole new chapter of our lives. You guys are GOOD! Real good ...

I can't believe how long it's been since I have been here. After I ordered the trailer work got crazy busy, but I guess it kept my mind off having to wait until November 13th. I made the trailer a new home, it gets to sleep in a nice big tent. I almost want to sleep in the tent too, but I guess that's what the trailer is for Nine more sleeps until I get to pickup the 19, still needs a name too.

The name you choose will be perfect for you! And, you don't even have to tell us unless you want to. It's one of those things that makes you happy just thinking about "it."
