I'm rkj__, and last night, my wife and I became the proud new owners of a very lightly used 2016 [email protected]
I have not taken the camera out to take some decent pictures yet, but in my excitement last night, I did manage to snap this picture on my phone after backing the trailer into the driveway. I was successful on only my second try. :-)
I'm going to use this thread to ramble on about our ramblings, or something like that.
Part 1: Why did we buy a [email protected]
My wife and I have been married about a year and a half, and live in a comfortable house with our mini Labradoodle we named Hilton. She got her name when we cancelled our honeymoon reservation at the Fallsview Hilton, and used the money to buy her instead.
Sometimes, we just need to get away. Sometimes we decide to do that spontaneously. We both did a fair bit of camping growing up, from backcountry canoe trips, to tent trailers, to RVs. But, since we met, we only went camping once together, when we borrowed my parents' tent trailer. It seemed that a lack of gear, and time were holding us back.
In May, we went on a last minute, spontaneously planned trip to Grand Bend ON. For that trip, we stayed at a B&B, and had a great time. On that trip, we passed by Kelder's Trailer sales, and a lineup of cute [email protected]
and [email protected]
trailers near the road caught my wife's attention. We decided we would stop on the way back. When we stopped to take a look, we were quite intrigued.
We did a little research online, about the different configurations available. Without too much debate, we decided the CS-S suited us best.
The features that mattered most to us were: Cute, Outdoor Kitchen, Bathroom, and Air Conditioning. The [email protected]
CS-S was really the only trailer on the market that nailed those three points. But, was it just a dream?
As fate would have it, our local RV dealer, Niagara Trailers, had a very lightly used CS-S, which was exactly what we were looking for. Were we ready to buy? The idea had only just entered our mind. But, being the spontaneous couple we are, we figured it was now or never. We did not want to let that trailer slip away, and regret it later. So, we went for it! Niagara Trailers treated us very well. They were a breath of fresh air, after another shop I will not name, made no effort to help us.
This little trailer will allow us to keep most of our stuff packed, and make a quick getaway on Friday after work, drive somewhere nice, pull into a camp site, and not have to worry about a bunch of setup in the dark, or rain. Even on a regular weekend, we can have a full camping experience, without it all feeling too rushed.
We are wasting no time, and taking the trailer to Rondeau Provincial Park tonight! Rather than going into too much detail on my initial impressions, I think I will save that until after this weekend. This is starting to get a little long anyway. I will try to snap some decent pictures for you all as well, because everyone loves pictures.
