Newbie from Alabama

Yeah! We're getting our camper tomorrow! I'm so excited! Not sure I'll be able to sleep tonight. We're buying a 1978 Excella from a friend. Haven't seen it in a couple of years. Can't wait to organize all my camping stuff into the compartments {we had a pop-up for 5 years}. She was a good pop-up but without a bathroom, camping was limiting. So ready for a fun family camping trip.

Thanks for the greetings. My husband and I towed it home last night with my Tahoe. Going to use the truck next time. Need a new hitch. We had to go 55mph the whole way home.

The proper hitch setup makes all the difference. There are many different options out there. Just make sure it is a good Weight Distribution hitch WITH sway control. We love our ProPride Hitch setup. Others swear by their Reese, Pullright, Hensley, Etc.
