Another new owner

Thanks to much of the helpful advice I've received from this website, I just purchased my first RV of any type, a new Sunset Trail 270BH. Got a great price and service, as well as a comprehensive walk through, from Northgate RV in Ringgold, GA. Trailered it over 500 miles home to Baton Rouge with no problems towing behind my Tundra. Equalizer hitch and Tekonsha P3 brake controller helped, also thanks to advice from this forum. Ready to go camping!

Welcome to the forum. Lots of nice State Parks in Louisiana. I've camped in Fontainebleu, Fairview-Riverside, Tickfaw and Sam Houston Jones, all along I-12 and I-10. I usually stay in one of them when on my annual trip to and from Texas from Georgia.

Welcome to the forum,

I agree the forum helps set expectations for new owners, regardless of brand. For many of us, we buy these trailers for all the bells and whistles. One thing this forum has taught me is that bells and whistles can have issues.

Get him Frank. That 80-90 mile jaunt over to Beaux Bridge will just get him warmed up and then he'll have more help than he would ever need to park or whatever.....

The park is nice, hopefully the weather will be also. What makes it great is the people.

I agree Cliff. This is one I have really wanted to attend every since I first heard about it. I think it would be awesome. Not going to be able to attend this year either. The people, food, drink, food, drink, and location sounds like a great time. Hope everyone enjoys.
