Picking up our first 5er tomorrow

For the past three years our rv was a tent trailer behind our Goldwing. Tomorrow we pick up an 08 Everest to go behind our Duramax. Should be an interesting comparison.

I remember picking up my new 5er. It was the greatest feeling in the world coupled with a bit of terror at hauling a 38 foot rig behind my truck. But I had the same big grin on my face that I have on every year just before the first trip of the year. Happy trails.
