Retiredrvers

Hello from Tennessee. We are new rvers and are here to learn all we can about this new chapter in our lives. RVing!
Well have a lot of questions. Some legit and some silly Im sure, but bear with us. Weve purchased a used Sunset Trail 288 bh. We decided on the bunks for the grandkids when they are with us. Most of the time they will not be. So it will be a storage area of sorts. Our tow vehicle is a 2014 Toyota Tundra 5.7. I have a Curt distribution hitch and Tekonsha brake controller so far. Have a long list of other things to get. Next week will be busy. Looking forward to finding out things I should do now. Problems with this model. Etc etc etc.
Thanks in advance for your advice,input,and RV wisdom!👍

Hi Superduperjeeper,

I too have a Toyota Tundra, and absolutely love it. It pulls my 'Zinger' 291RL effortlessly with a WD hitch and tecumsa brake controller.

Enjoy your new adventurers.

Hey Biggles. �� Actually just brought ours home today from the Tennessee plateau. Had the brake controller set okay, need to fine tune my hitch. Little bit light on front for me.
Have a good one. Appreciate ya! ��
