Smile Hello From Nashville, Tennessee! (Twang Town)

Hello from Nashville!

I'm Steve, am married, am 40 something, and have two little ones that I want to take RV'ing this summer.

Currently looking for something around the 25' range, about 5 years old and in great shape. Looking to spend as close to $5k as possible.

I know I'm asking a lot, but things are tight right now.

Blessings to you all...

Steve

Steve, hope you enjoy this forum as much as I have. The information, camaraderie, and support from the members here is like an extended family.

What are you looking for, a travel trailer, 5th wheel, Class C or Class A?

Welcome Aboard!

Howdy Steve and welcome to the forum. I assume you are shopping for a travel trailer in that price range? There's lots of good info here, and you might check the Classified section to see if there's anything for sale that catches your eye. Good luck.

High Steve and welcome. May want to also try the RV place out off I40 by the outlet mall and Pilot. (Dunlap RV???) We have purchased 2 travel trailers from Brad (owner) from his store in Dunlap. He always treated us right.
Happy RV hunting!

Wow, thanks for all the welcomes! Feel like I just arrived at a family reunion.

I'm looking seriously at a 2007 Jayco 213. Really clean unit and under 10k. Wife and I can sleep in the back, two girls in the front bunks.

Just wondering, do the AC units go out very often in travel trailers. Especially if they haven't been ran in over a year or two?

Thanks again. And the meet-up in Sevierville, TN in Sept. sounds tempting!
