My name is John Brady, my wife and girls and I live in NJ. We just today, purchased our 1st travel trailer. We bought a 2000 Jayco Kiwi 23B 23 ft Hybrid from a very nice older couple in PA via Craigslist.

My wife and I, when growing up, both our parents had pop ups, so that is what we were used to camping in. We tent camped the last 2 years, wow, that was culture shock to me, never did that before, not a fan here.

That leads us to where we are now, I told my wife once I get a newer vehicle we would try to get a travel trailer, and today that day has arrived.

We are excited to be able to have our daughters experience trailer camping and this will set the stage for them being able to see more of what our beautiful country has to offer. Very excited for that ! I only need 18 more states to have been to all 50 and I'm only 43 yoa.( My parents have all 50 under their belt, a remarkable feat) Thanks to my parents, we traveled everywhere when I was younger in their pop up. This is what I intend to do with our girls, once of course after I feel more comfortable towing it, lol.

I will be needing to tap into all of your experiences and knowledge regarding everything travel trailer camping, I've been reading up, need to go back now and reread since it's now a reality.

I look forward to chatting with you all, and thank you for allowing us to join your community.
