Welcome to the forum. Driveway camp so you can get used to your new camper.

Welcome aboard, and congrats on your new camper!!

I agree with cwit, do some driveway camping if at all possible. It should be fun for everyone, plus it will give you the opportunity to learn about your camper in a very stress free environment.
Enjoy

Thank you! Well unfortunately I live in a townhome community and they don't allow us to have our campers parked there overnight or at all and I don't know anyone that has the room for me to park it where they live for overnight camping... I am storing it where I bought it...I am just going to go for it and take it on an official camping trip next month...

Welcome to this forum, there is a ton of great information on here that's yours for the searching. If you don't find what you need there are a lot of great people here ready to help. You'll find the CR community one of the best on the web.
I'd suggest going to your camper several times before you leave and at least act like you are camping. Practice setting it up and getting it ready to camp in. Turn things on and off and do as much as you can with where it is. Being familiar with your new rig before you leave really makes for a much more relaxed first adventure.
Good luck with your first camping trip.

Thanks for all the good information. I will be going to the camper to load it up with essentials etc before I leave... I feel pretty good about taking it out on its first camping trip, it will of course be an experience I am sure. The only way to get good at it is to just do it. I will be meeing good experienced friends at the campground who can all help me on my first outing. I have read a lot of books, had a great walk-thru the camper and feel pretty good about taking it out on its first trip. The only thing that is somewhat intimidating is actually pulling the trailer, we did take it out on a good test run and it went well, wasn't as difficult as I thought. I should be quite experienced by the time I get back though... considering my first trip will be an 8 hour drive there and 8 hours back... thanks again for the warm welcome!

Several things.



Check your tire air pressure, trailer and tow vehicle.

After 25-50 miles do a walkaround and check for any problems.

AND remember it's not a race, slow and easy will get it done.



Enjoy it. It's going to be fun...

Thanks for that good info... I also heard and read not to go over 65 mph because those ST tires are not rated over 65...most important as you mentioned, making sure they are inflated properly....

Hi and welcome the the site I'm new to CR but not new to rv'ing but I also just another new Cruiser and will pick it up 2 days from now in Ozark Mo.Then we'llhead to aRV park in Branson Mo. only 25 miles from the dealer so if anything isn't ok I'll be real close to the dealer . If you could do the same at a RV park close to home you could check it all out before you get too far from home and the dealer . I have been Rv'ing sence 1971 or so and have had more then one bad thing happen to me rigg .

Thanks for the good advice. Which cruiser did you buy? Is it a towable? How big is it?

Hi GeogiaFlyer went and picked up our new CT29RLX 33 ft camper trailer yesterday and got it all set up 30 mil.from the dealer at the Acorn Acers RV park in Bransom Mo. for the nite and give it aREALLIFE test of all systems

Ok the first thing we found was the floor in the shower wasn't braced up verry good as we could feel it flex Then after our shower we sat down in the recliners to watch a little Tv and the the release lever's took all I had to get them to open up . Now the good news We called Campbell Ford & RV Dealer this morning and was told to bring in it and they would get it all fixed up for me.

Robert Guthrie My salamam is a SUPER GREAT guy and will bend over backwards to see that your a HAPPY CAMPER .

So My friend thats what we are trying to say { I DON'T CARE WHAT KIND OF A CAMPER IT IS YOU SHOULD GIVE IT A HARD SHAKE DOWN TEST BEFORE YOU HIT THE ROAD }}

Say have any other Cruiser owners bought yours fron Campbell Ford -Mercury in Ozark Mo. ??

Tim
