Thanks for the welcome OhioMark! What's funny about the matching colors is I didn't even notice until my wife said something after I pulled the camper home from the dealership.
And what's even better is Sean pointed out that the colors match the P3 company colors (I had posted a pic to Facebook after our practice trip recently)! Definitely not planned but kinda cool.
Great recommendation on adding length when booking sites, thanks! I had not thought of that. I'm not quite confident enough to book back-in sites though, so I booked only pull-throughs for our Grand Canyon trip (same for our recent "practice trip" to east TX). We're staying at a couple of KOAs and will be arriving late evening to both of them. I didn't want to worry over backing in after long days of driving. I'm already a little worried about getting gas of all things since I can't just whip in and out of just any gas station anymore! I plan to scope out all the Loves between here and the Grand Canyon in advance!
Yes I installed the P3 hitch myself. I hemmed and hawed over it beforehand and finally decided I could do it. It took me 5 hours on a cold February morning at the dealership, and I only had to call Sean twice during the install (thanks for the offer for his contact info but I've already had to use it.)
. Several of the guys there stopped to ask me what in the world it was because they'd never seen a hitch like that. Ha! So far I love it. No white-knuckling down the highway!
Thanks again for the warm welcome. I really appreciate it and I'm looking forward to learning from you and I'm sure many other knowledgeable members in this forum!
