Perfect beginning

I purchased a 22ft Sport in April, and just had my first opportunity to take her out (Rudd’s creek reservoir just outside of Boydton VA). I just have to say, everything worked perfectly, and it was a great chance to push all the buttons and pull all the levers before the bride joins me for her first AS experience next weekend. What a great “man at his best” moment. We’ll be at Virginia Highland Haven next weekend.

Very nice! Make sure you have some “bubbly” on ice.
Enjoy!

You'll enjoy "Highlands Haven." We were there three weeks ago...very peaceful and relaxing.

Welcome to the forum DJBIggieSlim!

Great to hear you had a successful shake-down trip. Fingers crossed your bride experiences the same in your next trip. This forum offers great advice if and when you have questions.

My wife was initially cool on getting our class b. But she's now as excited to go as I am. Our initial trip did not go as well as yours. But the few problems were fixed and now nearly forgotten.

Next week while you are staying at Highland Haven try to get to the town of Floyd on Friday night they have bluegrass music on the streets. Also if you like beer try Buffalo Mountain Brewery, be sure to tell Bill, Scott and Natalie said hi. Almost forgot if you like to hike find Buffalo Mt. it the highest point in Floyd county and when on top you have a 360 degree view!

Do remember to set the stabilizer jacks firmly when parked.

Yup and many wives do not like trailers that wobble...
