My wife Julie and myself have just joined the forum, having taken delivery of a 2012 335SS Provincial on December 6th. Funny time to be buying an RV in Ontario, but when you find the unit you want and the price is right.......
We are moving from a 27' Fleetwood prowler trailer and this is our first fifth wheel. It tows like a dream and now that we have it home we are in the process of getting it ready for our maiden voyage. Call us crazy but we are headed for Sunny?? Florida as there are not many places to go in Ontario in February. We are busy cleaning and loading. Also making a list and checking it twice, but we're not talking Christmas here. Even with a lengthy PDI we are finding a number of little things to have corrected.
Nice to be aboard, I think we have read about 75% of the forums so far. Anyone know when the Crossroads Rally is going to be?

Welcome to the family. Check the "Rally with Crossroads" section for a rally in your area. We have two or three during the year, some North and some South.

Welcome - you'll enjoy the fifth wheel. You have the right truck for towing too - the D/A is a great towing rig. If you don't have air bags on your truck you may want to add them - improves the ride and reduces sag due to the pin weight. I have Air Lift Load Lifter 5000</span>on my 3500HD.Edited by: NorskeNY

Welcome and congratulations on your new unit. We have a 335 Patriot and put over 15,000 miles on it this year. It is very well laid out with lots of storage. Also had several issues that were taken care of by the dealer, but very satisfied with it so far.

Welcome and congratulations. As already mentioned, check the Rally section in this forum for information in regards to the rally's. I am sure some of the northern folk will chime in soon, but there are a few that make the annual trip to Indiana. Hope to see you there....

Thank all of you for the Well Wishes and advice. Have been busy getting ready for Christmas and haven't been on the forum for a bit. To NorskeNY, I have ordered Suspension Air Bags for the truck as I am always looking for improvements. To Old Farmer, unfortunately we are not close to Thunder Bay, hailing from the more southerly climes around Toronto. We are presently weighing and loading as we get ready to head south at the end of January. Hopefully I won't have to sweep a foot of snow off the trailer before we go. Pictures will follow when we get the rig all hooked up and underway.
