as a 61 yo grandfather,,, i envy you.
the times you , and your growing family are going to have in that little scamp will be memories you will have for ever. for both mom and dad, and for that baby.
remember not to watch it all threw a veiw finder. sure take pictures, but remember the best pictures will be in your mind.

so travel wisely. far isn't always best. there are surprising things to see and do within a tank of gas no matter where you live.

oh,,,,and always cary a fishing pole, god doesn't count time spent fishing , specialy with a child.

Our 13 is towed with a mini van. We do not have a lot of weight in the rear of the trailer and combined with the wheel base of the Honda have never needed a sway bar. We don't tow at more than 65 mph.

Part of my database links Pam There's another one, equally as cool... it was done in "white" if I can find it, I'll post that one too. It may help Matt or others with small children

And yes, John has the right idea... it's about the memories we make and that are stored in our "experiences," not necessarily by those we take pics of... YMMV

Thank you very much everyone for the welcomes and the advice.
I installed the sway bar yesterday, just going to touch it up with some welds (it bolts on).
The bunk bed set up is just great looking--I'm really excited to get to that in the future.

I have heard that sway bars might need to be disconnected before sharp backups, just a heads-up in case there's any truth to that. I have no direct experience with one.

Aaron has a sway bar from Camping World, about $80, there is also one at Harbor Freight for I think $35, was wondering if anyone knows about the quality of the HF bar.
Welcome and congratulations.
I have used a Harbor Freight Tools Anti-Sway Bar and it worked as well as the Draw-Tite unit I replaced, though I don't use it towing my Scamp. I do however use my trailer brakes.
