I guess I’ve been in love with the idea of buying a travel trailer since I first heard the old classic song, “King of the Road” that says “no phone, no pool, no pets…” It was the “no phone” part that pulled at my heart strings. I longed for some family time away from the video games and laptops. So, I set out to find a family travel trailer.
My wife and I bought a used Jayco White Hawk last spring. We got a great price on it because we knew exactly what we wanted and what we were expecting to pay, thanks to your review book. When we brought it home, our two children, ages eight and twelve, talked us into taking a trip in it right away. We were Colorado bound!
Our first stop was at Palo Duro Canyon State Park on the way up. It’s located in the heart of the Texas Panhandle and is an extremely windy area. I had been concerned the trailer might not be sturdy enough to withstand the gale force winds but it did great. I was impressed!
Our destination was Ouray, Colorado because they have awesome hot springs and a new pool they’ve remodeled that the children were dying to try out. Of course coming from Texas, there was no way to get to the town without going through the steep mountains. I was nervous to pull the travel trailer at first but true to the reviews I had studied, it managed with ease. We had an absolute blast on our vacation, I must add.
The quest to purchase a travel trailer was easier than I thought it would be, thanks to the helpful information I found in your travel trailer comparison guide, published by RVReviews.com. I can assure you that I would have fallen for a showroom floor model and missed out on the one I chose had I not heeded your warning to compare manufactures before I started shopping rather than while shopping. I read lots of reviews and got all the facts I could about them…then made my decision. And it turned out to be one of the best choices I’ve made in my entire life. Now, I am truly the King of the Road.
