I came back!

I haven't posted on here for quite a while. I've been dealing with tumors in my arms for a couple of years now (operated on both of them & 1 broke)& think we finally have a handle on it!! We picked our 17B up at the factory a few weeks ago, after trying to sell it. There were no serious offers. I'm thinking that was meant to be as we can now get back into camping & all that goes with it. I've come on here just to lurk & keep up with whats going on. Anyway, we are in the process of filling the trailer up with all of of our "need to have stuff" & i'm wondering how we ever went camping before all of that! There seems to be a lot of "you never know when you might need it" items LOL!!! Take care, Gary

Welcome back, glad to hear things are working out good for you. Karma musta had you in that trailer, that is all there is to it.

We eliminated almost all of those items. At the end of last year, we took out all the things that had not been used in the last year. Now, even without a storage box, we have plenty of spare room. Usually there is next to nothing in the tow either.

I also think this is where a list with everything you may need on it works good. Before taking off somewhere, I open it up on the computer and delete everything I won't need on that trip, as well as all the items I am confident are in the trailer already. I then print and close the file without saving.

Hi: GaryH... WELCOME BACK!!! Glad you didn't sell your trailer. Now you can follow Dr's orders and get down to some serious fun. Health is one of those "You never know when you need it" items!!! Alf
