Just bought our first TT

We found the perfect floor plan for us, a Jayco 318RLS and it was a left over new 2010, so we got a great deal. We pick it up this Friday, take the class, go camping nearby on that night and then take it back to be winterized the next day and then tow it the 400 miles home.........the pop up TV never gets old!

Congrats - the only problem with buying a rig this late in the season is that you only get to use it once or twice before winter. I did this once - and never again.

Randy's right. We bought our pop-up in September, used it 2-3 times before winter set in, then looked at it every day in the driveway while we "X"d off the days on the calendar until spring returned.

Worse, be bought our current TT in January. The dealer agreed to keep it on his lot until we came for it in the spring. Never happened. Couldn't wait any longer. We pulled it out of there on a snowy day in February. Here I am, pulling a 6,500 pound TT for the first time on roads that were so icy that we encountered a skidding accident along the way.

When you do stuff like this, It just makes you want to sing that song by 10CC: "The Things We Do For Love"

We of course thought about that, but when we told the dealer we were going to wait until Spring, they knocked another $2,000 off of the price..........SOLD!
I think that we got a great deal (over 12K off, and even though its a 2010, its still new), and it is THE floorplan that we wanted (after looking at about 100 different brands and plans!).

Nothing like a new to you camper! if you're like us when we get a new one, you'll be eating dinner in it for a while.
