My CT13 Adventure begins...

Well, we went and did it, and there will be one sitting in the driveway tomorrow evening.


New to RV ownership, though my family had a couple when I was a kid.



Really looking forward to getting on the road with this puppy after a few tweaks!


Cheers!

Excellent. A really fun chapter is beginning.

Here's my egg. Needs some work, but it'll get there.

Closer view. Moderator, please forgive if I snarled up with multiple posts. Please feel free to declutter.

The previous owner used that and the tape mark on the window protector as alignment guides when backing up to the hitch. My tow vehicle has a longer wheelbase, so that won't work for me as configured. I may end up doing something similar for ham radio purposes, though.

TR,
We've enjoyed our CT 13 over the past 2 seasons.
One caution: Pull up any rug and make sure the receptacle for the table is sound. If not, replacements are available. And don't travel with the pedestal in - ours broke through the floor and luckily hit a cross beam or it would have hit the road and I shutter to think of the mess that would have been if it had hit the road surface while we were hauling it.
I also set up a nice system with the bunks up front using plywood and pvc piping. Maybe you have the part already for that but we only had the hinge.
Finally, you must keep the battery charged before a trip so the furnace will ignite.
Enjoy! John

Jab, wisdom noted. Thanks!

Harold, will try to put some up later today. It's pretty much as built, minus a thing or two.
