Congrats on your new baby and welcome! Like you, we are on Long Island....except we are on the other end, in Wainscott, just a few miles from Hither Woods. And like you we bought our 2006 20' Safari from Colonial (used) right about this time two summers ago.
Colonial was great and indeed I'll never forget that harrowing first pull home! We did the BQE while under construction. Merging to one lane damn near scared me to death.
Since then however we've pulled it roughly 10,000 miles. We'll be full timing it beginning in a few weeks until Labor Day as we rent out house out here for the summer season.
Hither Woods can be impossible to get into and they don't allow pets so we don't camp there much. We prefer Cedar Point in East Hampton and Gin Beach (where you can tow right onto the beach) in Montauk.
Good luck with everything. I can't tell you how incredibly valuable these forums have been to us as we continually "learn the ropes."
We'll look for you out this way.
