New owners from BC

We have been looking for a TT for just the two if us and our dog. We have searched for the last year, season dependant, for a TT that provided both comfort and lots of storage, but had to be 1/2 ton towable.

We have been tent campers for a lifetime, but the wife is tired of the coolers, totes and cots and going to the bush to...... So the search began.

Yesterday, we came across the 2012 Kodiak 200QB in excellent shape, so we bought it after going through the trailer. The guy selling it is a Journeyman RV tech with 21 years experience and went through the trailer with a fine tooth comb and fixed any issues he found, which were a couple of minor ones.

The only downfall to this purchase is we still have 4' of snow and no place to put the trailer, so we have to wait a few weeks to a month before we can pick it up......which is driving the wife crazy!!

So we are looking forward to spending time off the ground, peeing in a toilet and sleeping on a queen bed!!

Welcome, you probably couldn't do any better than buying a used camper from an
RV tech. And yes, a camper is far more enjoyable than a tent, especially after 40.
