Congrats on the new addtion to your family! Probably a little too cold to go camping right now where you live, so the April delivery date should be just about right.

Know exactly how you feel. We bought Jay Feather 29N last Oct and will be picking it up the first of April also. Other than the bunk beds we will have essentially the same trailers. Should keep in touch as we get to using them and let each other know about any quirks we come across.

350 days till retirement

Ooops! Sorry 'bout the typo.

I did look up the 29N, that is a nice floor plan. It reminds me of some of the "big rigs" with the two chairs in the rear. Is there a window on that rear wall?

Yes, the window across the back is a nice size as seen in the Front to back view on the web site at: Picture Gallery

We are very much looking forward to getting out in this new rig.

Nope, actually 347 calendar days. Eligible on the 1st of Feb, 2007 but will probably stay on till around the first of Sept when we head for Nova Scotia to visit brother. I will have enough time built up then to vacation until 1 Feb 2008 and then will officially pull the plug. Gives me another year on my retirement but I intend to coast after Feb 1 next year and if they don't like it well they can always buy me out.

Yeah, we are really getting anxious to try out the trailer. As I said we are set up to do PDI at the end of March and take the trailer home. We can then start getting a few things ready for a trip to land we have with another brother down on the BC/US border at a little town called Midway. Eventually will settle there after retirement. After Midway the wife & I are going down to Idaho then on to Washington to visit oldest son & family. Should be a nice shakedown. Will let you know how it all works out.

What kind of hitch did you get? I went for the Reese, not for any reason other than it was available through the dealer here and he gave me a good deal on it. I also liked the dual-cam setup for sway control. The old 21' TT we had before I just pulled without equalizer or sway control without any problem but as this trailer is much bigger I thought I better get some added protection. Also bumped up to the Prodigy brake control.

The dealer is taking my old WDH & giving my a husky with dual-cam setup for sway control.

I had an Ez-lift with 1 sway bar.

I'll see how this tows with the Husky, maybe change to an equalizer. The dealer now carries them so might just try to see what price he will give.
