We needed a "trial run" for the new trailer before we spent a week sleeping in it, so we reserved a couple nights at Palisade State Park and took it down. It was EXTREMELY windy, but we had a good time. Even better, everything worked. It was a full hook-up spot, which means we didn't have to rely on tanks to get by, but that was OK, since we had plenty of other things to worry about.
Just towed my new (to me) trailer (2007 Fleetwood Pioneer) home, first time I've towed anything of that size (26') for 15 years or so, and back then, it was only for about a half mile. It went great, I even pulled it into and out of a gas station.
We had planned all along to buy a camp trailer, and after a couple months of hard looking, we got it done. We knew we wanted something big enough for everyone to comfortably be in, but not necessarily sleep in, so a slide-out was pretty much a requirement. We ended up with this 2007 Pioneer 26BHS (by Fleetwood).
Why is it that a flight from L.A. to Orlando takes the same amount of time that a flight from Atlanta to Salt Lake City? There's something going on there that I just don't understand. Prevailing winds? Differing altitudes? Rotation of the earth?
