Well, we are official!

The wife and I finally got our first TT. We just had our first child last November. I always said that when we have children, we would go camping like my parents did with me. So we pulled the trigger on a 2016 Cherokee Grey Wolf Limited 23dbh. We love it! Did some driveway camping with it at home. Next project will be installing a real 30 amp breaker and outlet to plug her in. The little converter from 110v just isn't cutting it. Anywho, here she is!

Very Nice. Trailers have changed a lot since I camped with my parents 50 years ago!

Thanks Rooster. So if I do a 30 amp 110 breaker then that should power my rig like the hookups at state parks? as it stand right now, I have one of the 110 to 30 amp converters but I can pretty much only run my lights and a tv. Turn the a/c on and the breaker trips. So if I install this everything should be able to be fired up? Thanks again.

Yes, if your new RV is a 30amp system, then it will be just like at a campground.

However, two precautions, first make sure it's 30amp/120vac as many home electricians are not familiar with RVs and will install it like a home dryer. Next, consider having a 50amp RV plug installed. That way, if you trade up, you will already be setup and until then you can use a 50 to 30 adapter.

Driveway camping is always exciting. Very nice looking unit. Enjoy it and have a good season ahead.

Nice setup!

BTW.. you only need that 30 (or 50) amp line if you're going to run the A/C and Microwave. Otherwise, your standard 15 amp house line will work just fine and run the microwave, frige, and tv all at the same time. It's the a/c that's a killer.

Nice looking trailer. You'll be giving your children an experience, that like you, will last them for the rest of their lives.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!

X3! Grew up as a child doing it, and some of my favorite memories are from taking the old Shasta camper to the mountains and numerous other places. Been hooked on it ever since.

Beautiful new camper. Enjoy!

Drive way camping and real close to home camping (mine was 29min. drive from the house to the campground) are great to find anything on the rig that needs repair and to familiarize yourself with how things work. Plus, it's a ton of fun to yard camp. There is an app for when you are ready to dump the tanks, so enjoy!
