Hello from the Southwest!

Hello! we recently traded in our 1999 Terry Ultra Lite 17 feet for a 2005 Keystone Everest 343L Fifth Wheel. I know what a change! My husband had to do the parking lot test before we could even attempt to get it down our cul de sac

I spend one entire day shampooing, wiping down (even though the previous owners took excellent care of it) and stocking it with clothes, kitchen things and bedding. I was in heaven even though it was a sauna!

We are putting it to our first test on a 3 hour drive to the mountains and we are a little nervous. I have been reading and studying everything that I need to know about this "big" (to us) rig.

I am grateful for any and all advise you can give to me!

Glad you're aboard. Congrats on the new to you rig. Just a thought on the sauna...any way to get electric to power up the TT? Could use those roof air units to help you keep cool. Best of luck. Enjoy your adventures and be safe.

Have a wonderful day!
