Family's first Trailer.

I is my pleasure to be posting this. A few months ago my wife and I decided we were going to try using a travel trailer instead of tenting it. We have 2 year old son and haven't camped since he was born. So after total hell and weeks of looking at junk I finally came across a 06 Fleetwood Mallard 250fq and it is perfect for the wife and son, me and the pup. Towing with my 06 Silverado. So finally we got out this past weekend for a 4 day trip and we are hooked.
