Talking We got one!

So exhilarating and scary and fun. We bought a 2015 Z-1 301bh and then got a new 2015 F-150 to pull it. We have 2 kids ages 8 & 6. I wish I had summers off but alas....not a teacher so we are weekend warriors for now. But we have all ready camped in the driveway.lol.
looking forward to many years of good memories camping. Ill be checking the boards for tips.
Thanks!!!!

Congratulations on the new Zinger and the new F-150! Those new F-150s look great, I might be just a little bit jealous. Welcome aboard. I hope you have great service from both and many happy camping memories!

Congratulations I am sure you will make many happy memories. Our daughter had so many great camping memories when she was young that she now drives an F150 and tows a trailer for camping. Her kids are now making camping memories!

I don't know what they told you in the walk-through (your mind is still spinning, I bet), but here is the single most important thing you can do: once or twice a year, carefully inspect the exterior caulking from front to back and from top to bottom. Water intrusion is an RV's worst enemy and the damage it can cause is insidious. You need to touch up where needed.

Keep in mind that a trailer going down the road is basically subject to an earthquake the whole time it is moving. Things will jar loose, etc. There is quite a learning curve in owning a trailer - everything from the fun backing up part to regular maintenance. Enjoy!
