Hi Everyone

I've never had a tt, but my husband has his whole life and he finally convinced me to try it out. So, we just bought '02 Dutchman 19t and looking forward to some great trips - as soon as we take care of some deferred maintenance of the previous owners. Roof coat, reseal window, etc. Then, some updating to the fabrics inside. Hopefully its ready to go for the upcoming shrimping season on the St. Johns River.

Thanks

We have purchased all the stuff to do the roof and are heading to my cousins on the St. John. They have a 3 bay shop where we can pull in and take care of the roof without worrying about the rain. I'll take some pics while we're there and post.

Welcome to the forum, there is a lot of good advice here so take some time and look for the topics that interest you. Remember that you may see a some negativity here toward the dealerships and company's but try and overlook it for the benefits the site does provide.

Update/Pictures

Thanks for the welcome.
I am really enjoying my first outing in the new (to us) camper. I'm uploading pictures. The first thing we did was put on the roof coat - It really needed it. Now, I'm cleaning and figuring out how to fit everything inside, which required some creative thinking and reading some rv hack sites, but I'm making it work. So far, the only thing I really don't like is having zero counter space.

Looks like a great roof job! WOW!


As to your counter space. Make some covers for your sinks. Most new TT have that now and it helps a lot toward counter space.


Enjoy!

Our Aerolite

Welcome Hope, we bought a used 2013 Aerolite also and updated it, it is just what we want/need...
Here is a picture of the Dinette in ours, I made legwarmers for the table legs, because the cold metal is offensive to my legs.
Hubby put a drop down table on the front of the cabinet and we bought a big chopping board to cover up the stove, instead of 60 dollars it was 16 at IKEA.
Have fun with it, it's your home!
