Newbie from Cali

New here
Hey everyone, I'm new here. so now I can take a minute to introduce myself.

I'm married (we celebrated our 16th anniversary yesterday), and we have 4 kids and 2 dogs.

This past Tuesday, bought our first trailer, a 36' Crossroads Z-1 Zinger 328SB. I'm pulling it with a Dodge Ram 2500.

Thanks for all the help and insight so far!

Hello And Welcome!

If you have any questions just ask.

Please include the make, model and year - the best way to do this is to add a signature with that information - it just helps others to better help you.

Enjoy your new camper.

Hey Judy-

Welcome, welcome, welcome! We bought almost the same trailer and tow vehicle last year and have traveled from Wisconsin to Estes Park Co twice.

We have been married 30 years and swore early on that we would never camp. (We both spent childhoods tent camping with endlessly frustrated parents).

Then the pandemic came, but our love of travel never went away. Now we are planning on visiting national parks from coast to coast for many years to come.

The one crucial tip that I can provide is to carry 5-10 gallons of gas in the bed of your truck. The highways in middle America can get pretty desolate, and having the spare gas saved our bacon once on each trip. You'll be shocked at how quickly you go through fuel, and the spare gas will get you the extra range that you need to get to a gas station.
