Hello all, I'm Tony from Beavercreek Ohio. My family has been tent camping for a few years and although protocol seems to dictate that we move to a pop up first and suffer thru that for a few years before moving onto an actual travel trailer, we decided to break with tradition and take the plunge with a new TT! We have decided on a 2011 Zinger ZT26BH and while excited I'm also a little nervous to be taking this big step! I know next to nothing about RVs so hopefully this forum will be a great resource for having all of my dumb newbie questions answered...thanks in advance! Edited by: stl_tl

Welcome. Congrats on the new rig. Best advice is to ensure your salesperson goes over EVERY detail and shows you how to work everything. Make them earn their commission!

Thanks for the welcome folks! And yes, Stan, I plan to make that salesman earn every penny! I'll have a ton of questions for sure. And like someone suggested on another thread I read here, I plan on having them take me for a test drive when everything gets hooked up to my truck as I have zero experience pulling a camper. I pulled generator trailers with a big truck (deuce and a half for those familiar) when I was in the Army but I know that this will be a little different.

Congrats from one newbie to another! We just bought a Zinger ZT26BL, the sister to your trailer.
