SO excited!!

The DH and I have an appointment Saturday to do our PDI and bring home our new (to us) Wildwood. We have camped for 33 years, first in tents, then always in pop-ups and this will be our first travel trailer. I have been reading this site for a long time, so hopefully wont have too many questions....but just in case, it's great to know where to find advice!!

Cool - you will really like the feel of a TT. I camped in tents for a long time too. A TT is not really camping. You will have a great shelter with hot shower, bed, refrig, sink, TV, toilet, heat, it will stay dry inside etc.

New trailers are so cool !!!

Congrats and enjoy

Finally got her home...Had a huge ice storm that put off the first appointment, but we finally made it and we are thrilled! Spent last evening loading part of our stuff, moving things around, re-doing and then putting everything in different places!! LOL
I'm having a blast and I haven't even got her loaded up yet!
Shakedown trip will have to wait for better weather...around here all the campgrounds close up during the winter months. But, I'm thinking a few nights in the driveway with the furnace on will make us happy! Once I get everything arranged and decorated, I'll post pics.

Oh you are going to LOVE IT!!! That "move in" experience is wonderful! My wife had so much fun organizing, and figuring out how to put stuff in places, and I had a blast "gadgeting" around the place! Congratulations! Where are you going first? Cause if you are like us, those wheels are burning a hole in your driveway a
