Just Purchased Our First TT (2009 Jayco Jay Flight G2 29BHS)

Well, the wife and I purchased our first travel trailer last night. We found a good deal on a 2009 Jayco Jay Flight G2 29BHS. We are looking forward to family trips with our little ones. I'll try to post some pics when I pick her up!

Any suggestions as to good campgrounds in or around North Carolina? We are currently located between Raleigh and Fayetteville.

Congrats on your purchase! Be sure to post those pics. Sorry I can't help you with NC campgrounds but am interested in the responses to your post as I want to come down from VA and do some camping in NC.

no suggestions on campgrounds since I'm clear on the other side of the states. We just recently purchased our first TT also and took it out on a first trip this past Sun-Tues. I hope you have as much enjoyment out of yours as we did!
One thing I would suggest is just make your first trip out someplace fairly local as more of a test run. We only camped about 10 miles from home, along the river to stay cool on a couple of very very hot days here!, but it was more about testing all the systems out in the trailer and making a list over the course of the 3 days of things we realize we'll want or need on our next trip out.

Thanks everyone! We are looking to take our first trip the first weekend in August. We are planning on going to Camp Whitewater at White Lake in NC. Our boys are looking forward to it!

Very nice, I noticed on your picture that you have your stabilizers down, I read some where either on this forum or some where else that its not good to store your trailer with them down, I forgot the reason...sorry

If you like the mountains you're not going to go wrong in and around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Unless you like crowds and tourist shops/ traps, stay away from Cherokee on the south end and Pigeon Forge Gatlinburg on the north.

I have seen tralers stored in the winter that the door would rub in the spring due to frost twisting the frame enough to cause it.

Congrats on the Jayco

We have had 3 different Jayco's including the one we have now, a G2 31RKS. We have had a minimum number of problems over the years and with a minimum of care,they have all treated us well. We don't travel a great deal yet, but have been up and down the east coast and have only had one flat tire. Enjoy!

Hello We are in the same boat, just bought our first TT , also, a 2000 Keystone Springdale 25. Looking for to our first trip also, but busy making repairs. Why shouldn't you store with jacks down ???
