    I think it looks pretty sharp, though it will look a lot better when it's in a campsite with the awning out, a campfire going, and a half-case of empty beer cans in front of it.

    I did get in the driveway, wasn't sure if the jacks would catch on the slope coming up from the street. Not exactly straight, but it is within the width of the 3rd garage stall. (I'm not telling how many tries it took)

    Very nice! congrats. And, I won't ask about the tries because it takes DH 2 or 3 tries to get the Class C in and out of the pad in our yard. :lmao:

    Well, my driveway is a 30 degree uphill slope, bordered by huge bolders and my street is only one lane with parking on both sides. To top it off, the driveway is only 7 1/2 feet wide and my trailer is 8 feet, but I backed it in on one shot when I had my broken arm.

    Oh how the bulls*** flows like a rushing river around here. :cool1:

    Hey, you wanted to see clean truck you needed to be here yesterday. I had to go down a local gravel road this morning, in the rain, and viola, instant grunge.

    btw, our neighborhood association is working on the streets, so I had to back in the entire neighborhood, making 5 90-degree turns, dodge 13 dogs and 2 ladies with walkers, all in 4WD because of the mud. And I was eating lunch at the time. And the sun was in my eyes. And it took 2 tries, 'cause I was 1/4" off the mark the first time. :lmao:

    Looks nice Rob. Here's to many unforgettable memories in the camper!

    BTW, I'm not gonna brag about backing our 5er. I've never driven it forward, but should learn.

    Oh, I forgot to mention I was also eating an Egg McMuffin and had a cup of McDonald's scalding hot coffee between my legs at the time and didn't spill a drop.

    As much as it pains me to say it, probably not. It's been raining most of the day and will be throughout the night so I can't have the windows open. We don't have electric service in the garage yet so we can't run the AC or the fan, that will be one of next year's projects. The weekend is supposed to be good weather, so here I come!

    Part of my "financing expense" for this camper is that DW gets a bathroom put in downstairs. We'll have to expand the electric box to do that, so I will have them drop a dedicated 30-amp plug in the garage to plug in the trailer.
