It's here, it's here, it's here!!!

My T@B is here!!!!!! And even cuter in person!!!! Hubby had to take my daughter to her braces appnt 15 mins after Ed arrived but he came back after dropping her off. It's just the neatest little thing! 2 people have already asked to see inside and one person wanted to buy it as we were doing the paperwork with Ed!

We just picked up my daughter from her appnt and her bottom braces cant be put on till her bite is corrected with a bite plate otherwise her upper teeth will just scrape the bottom brackets off. They said to go ahead and go on our trip and they'll get the bite plate made while we're gone so we're free to go as soon as the trailer is cleaned, the A/C mod is complete and we get it all registered! So exciting!

After your decision to forgo a newly built trailer for a 'new to you' trailer, it's great to hear your excitement. Family first.
Enjoy!

Pix!

Oh, I guess I kindof need to get my hitch installed (at least it's here in the garage) and my van wired up b/4 I can go too, LOL.

My oldest was at her dental appnt so we'll have to photoshop her in as Ed said, lol.

Those really are cute! Did you tell us which inside configuration it is? I was looking on line and I think I saw where there were 4 interior layouts.

LOL, that was funny Pam and Jesse! Ya'll are on fire! lol.

Well, the inside is finally spotless. Ed hadnt had a chance to use it so I know all the dirt and gunk wasnt Ed's but the previous owners but it's all gone now along with the very used porta potti (didnt open it to see if it was blue water or yellow sloshing around). We even disassembled the power roof vent since it looked like a soda had sprayed up there. A bunch of dead bugs fell out on my daughter and me when I took off the cover, lol. After looking up the DOT codes for the tires they turned out to be the orginal ones from Oct 2003. The PO told Ed he had replaced them but with up close inspection you can see where they had sat all those years and cracked some in that spot so baby is getting a new pair of shoes before we head out. Already have a shiny new Thetford potti ready for her and a BAL Level. My UPS/FEDEX man is gonna think I'm Christmas shopping but this is more fun cuz for once it's for me, LOL! We're charging the battery now. It too is orginal and last check it was reading 13.16 volts. So does that sound healthy? The Fridge is cooling on AC power and we'll check propane systems once we fill the tank. This little gem is perfectly sized for me b/c I can actually stand up in it all the way to the back!! It's the "U Dinette Floorplan" in which the entire seating area turns into a bed 76X80. And there is room in the aisle in front of the kitchen for my oldest to sleep when we're all 4 traveling and overnighting. Bed is plenty big enough for me, Hubby and my little one or me and both girls. Those pop out windows are the bomb! They open fully so the air blows through really well esp when you crank on the roof fan. The cushion covers are pretty dirty so glad we're recovering them when we get back.
Tomorrow we wash the outside, see about getting my van wired up and put Hubby to work on the A/C Mod as well as finding tires.

I cant believe after waiting 6 months for a trailer I finally have my very own!! Keep having to look out the window b/c I cant believe it's really here and all mine!

We cant thank Ed enough for selling it to us and bringing it all the way down too. We wanted to buy him lunch but he had to get going on to West Palm Beach which was his final destination. Maybe he can come back through this way on his return trip but if not hopefully at Scamp Camp or a Rally or something we can buy him dinner.

Thanks! It is a nice Deep Cycle Battery but I dont know if the PO kept it plugged in so the converter kept it charged or what. It's still 7 yrs old so after this trip it may need repacing so we'll see.

Melissa,
I don't think you can say it's healthy without further testing. A reading of 13.6 implies it's either still on the charger or just removed. You have to disconnect the charger, put a moderate load on the battery for a couple minutes, then let it sit for a couple more, then test it. Or take it somewhere to be tested. Interstate Battery dealers, Autozone and Sam's Club all test batteries for free; others probably do also.
