We finally tow our T@B camper / travel trailer!

 

We finally get everything to where we are comfortable to tow a trailer for the first time.  I wish it was on some grand adventure, but it was just about 35 miles to our home from the campground in Monroe, WA.  We did stop a couple of times to make sure nothing was being destroyed and just to check on things.  The first thing we heard was the safety chains dragging on the gravel road.  Then we heard this plastic sound as we went over our first speed bump.  Yup, that was the gray tank plastic cover that had come off and was skipping across the gravel.

Luckily no sway at all!  The little T@B trailer tracked like a champ.  We did have some up and down bouncing (more than just bumps in the road)  We decided that we did not need the 2-inch drop on the hitch as the previous owners had with their taller SUV.  So we need to flip that hitch over.  That way the hitch will only have a 3/4-inch rise instead of the two-inch drop. We do however need to now add an adapter piece since the sway bar will have nothing to attach to.  (Sway bar adapter)

Check out the video!  Can’t wait for our upcoming trip 1 month out.

Our Little Teardrop Camper – T@B

Here it is the big reveal!

We found this great 2014 T@B camper/travel trailer.  We totally fell in love with its cuteness and versatility.  It is lightweight (about 1600 lbs) to tow but still has all of the amenities of a full-size RV. We have a kitchen, hot water, propane stove, air conditioning, and even a commode/shower combo.

Check out the latest video of our little teardrop being delivered….did I mention that it is the coolest shade of blue?
