Thumbs up Picking up our new (to us) TM on Saturday!!!

Excited to say that we are picking up our first TM this coming Saturday. Lightly used 2010 2720 with solar and 40 gallon reserve tank! We just sold our 1999 Dutchman popup and will be driving 5 hours to pick up the TM! Excited to own a 'nice' camper and even more excited to be part of this fantastic community.

That is all.

Welcome welcome welcome! Do not delay though, become a site sponsor for $12 a year, so all the good information will be available when you need it. Best money you will spend as it will save you hundreds. http://www.trailmanorowners.com/foru...ead.php?t=1064

I am thinking of trading for one of those and selling my 3023, I don't need all that trailer as I am by myself.

Let us know how things work out on the maiden camp out, suggest your drive for the first time to check things out.

Have FUN!!!

Dave

Default Welcome fellow Minnesotan

Welcome to the Trailmanor Club.

We had to drive a bit further to pick up our used 3326, all the way to Grand Junction, CO and it was worth it. We were on our way to Park City UT.

Enjoy and do join the site.

I drove from Wichita, Ks to Indianopolis, In to pick up my Trailmanor. It's a great camper..... Just did a 2,000 mile 5 campsite trip to the gulf coast with it.

Just what you have to do, sometimes!

Got ours in Tx and then drove back to Fl. Went from a Coleman Mesa to the TM. Welcome to the forums.

I am picking the trailer up with our 2003 Nissan Xterra (tow rating of 5,000 lbs with a 400lb tongue weight). Hopefully all goes well with the new camper!

Sopper, welcome to the club!

The Nissan at 5000 pounds should be a good vehicle, especially if you stay out of the Rocky Mountains. The rating of 400 pounds hitch weight is a bit short, but not catastrophically so. But combined with the short wheelbase of 104", you definitely need a weight distributing hitch (WDH). Drive very gently until you get one.
