Talking Ready for the weekend with our new (used) KZ Frontier

Took delivery yesterday and she fits perfectly in the driveway! We won't have to pay for storage, so that is a plus. Going to look for a cover today. We're heading up to Clear Lake with our 3 little kids this weekend - it should be a blast!

Note: It was my first time trailing something this big, and it took me about 30 minutes to get her properly parked in the driveway. I'll get better with practice, and hope to provide some amusement for fellow campers when I try to park when we get up to Clear Lake.

Looks nice. With the sloping drive, be sure to chock the wheels on both side on the down hill side. It won't roll up hill anyway. Also be sure and get it close to level before you run the frig.

Next thing is to make sure you do not have any deed restrictions or ordinances that prevent parking it on your property.

Enjoy your camping trip.

Nice rig. Enjoy the good times with your new hobby. I agree with Ice, make sure you don't have any restrictions with your town for parking an RV in your driveway. Some towns get a little dicey that way, particularly if you have neighbors who like to cause problems.

OSB, Nice rig, like Ken stated be sure to check your local deed restrictions, some clearly state a length of time an RV can be parked at your residence. Backing in will come with practice, our first trip out with our rig was an experience to say the least, we we're refered to as Lucy and Desi. Enjoy you travels and many happy miles and camping with you new rig.

Several RVs are parked full time in our neighborhood, and have been for years. I'll check the ordinance to be sure, but I don't expect any problems (and have a good relationship with all our neighbors).

There are chocks on both sides of the trailer to keep it from rolling down. I have it jacked so that it is within a half a hash mark from being level. Thanks for the heads up on that and running the fridge!

beautiful trailer. I see you must be in cali somewhere with the fog rolling in over the hills. I miss that time of year in Studio City where I used to live. No nice cool spring days here in Austin Texas my new home.
Enjoy your new camping lifestyle with the family.
