Hello. We're from Fort Worth, Texas, and new to travel trailer ownership. My wife and I just bought a 2007 Cikira Classic Cruiser (photos in the Photo Gallery). We've had it out 2 times, so far, with another trip planned for 2 weeks from now. Man, do we love staying in it. I can't believe how much I enjoy driving with it on the back of the truck. I just feel proud to own it. We were always looking at Class B & C rigs for the last 7 years, but realized that a towable was our lifestyle, really. It's not a really big one, but it's all we need, and we're enjoying it.

I know I'm going to need a lot of advice, especially with Winter camping and storage stuff. I think I'm going to need some experience in that area. I hope I don't learn things the hard way. Well, usually that's the way I learn things.

You'll probably see me hanging around here once in awhile, so I thought I'd say Hi! to y'all.

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">HI...welcome to the board. I'm glad you are enjoying your new TT. We just bought our first 5th wheel last month and have been having fun with it. I'm curious what kind of winterizing you will need to do down there in TX....up here in Michigan we will have to winterize it for 5 months until spring when we can take it out again. We have to watch for freezing pipes, mice, etc. I have so much to learn, lol.</span>

I don't plan on any kind of winterizing this year. We hope to use it every three weeks or so. Once in awhile it WILL go below freezing around here, and I'm thinking I can just keep the furnace running overnight and keep the plumbing from freezing too seriously. I'm wondering about the tanks below the floor, tho'. They could be a problem. We keep her in the yard here at home, so I can keep an eye on her on those cold nights.

We do not winterize our rig. We keep the thermostat about 50, spend a little $$ in propane, but it does not get below freezing here much and we take it out at least 1-2 times a month year round.
