First trip with our 261bhs

Took our first trip with our new TT. Left Langley B.C. and up the Coquihalla to Kamloops. Poured rain the whole way till Kamloops. Carried on to Armstrong where we parked our trailer at friends horse ranch. Checked TT and no leaks or anything broken. Plumbing, furnace, fridge, stove worked well. Only thing that came off was the upholstered end cap on dinette seat. My leg hit it sliding off seat. Re screwed it with bigger screws. Sunny and hot the whole 4 days and returned with everything intact. 2006 GMC D-max pulled great. No sway with equalizer 4 point sway hitch. Only thing that happened was my check engine light came on after filling up at Husky in Kamloops. Stayed on the whole way back home. Truck ran fine. No overheating problems. Filled up at our Langley Co-Op and light went out. Must have been the fuel at Husky. All in all was a good test run for truck and camper. (knock wood)

DW and I really enjoyed our time in the Armstrong area a few years ago. Your new purchase would only make it better. We also like camping in Fort Langley (except for the trains during the night). Happy Highways in your new trailer.

Thanks. It was a lot of fun. We are going to trailer down to Burlington, Washington today for a couple of days. Camping World is there. Never been to one so we thought we would wonder around there and see what they have. We used to live in Fort Langley and I know what you mean about the trains. There's getting to be more of them.
