Calgary 177LHS soon to be new owners

Hello everyone,

We will soon be new owners of the Hideout 177LHS and have been avidly reading the various threads. My wife is new to camping and we're both retired. I've had a variety of rigs since my early 20's (tent trailer, B class, C class, 3 class A's, a small boler sized trailer and lastly a truck camper I designed and built on the back of our F150). Now that my wife has taken to camping we've decided to go to a small trailer, good for 2 people + small dog, and tow-able by our truck.

A little nervous about trying to get the trailer into our backyard as the alley is not too wide so it will be interesting. I can see needing lots of practice, practice, practice...

Looking forward to learning and sharing with folks on the forum.

Steve and Mai

Welcome to the forum and congrats on that new trailer. Be sure and look through the forum and do searches for all the items you may want to outfit/stock the trailer with so that things go smoothly for your wife. Wishing you both happy travels and fun times.

Thanks to everyone for a warm welcome.

We're excited about the trailer for sure, I think my wife will be a little more comfortable with this than a 40 sq ft pop up camper but at least it fit in the garage. This forum has been a great source of information, right now just trying to decide on an e2 or e4 hitch setup given our very windy conditions here.

Welcome to the forum from Southern MD. Enjoy your new rig. You can always put a receiver on the front of your truck so you can drive it in the back yard instead of backing it in. My dad did that for years.

Thanks for the tip Tbos it's something I've been considering but nobody had actually recommended it yet so I wasn't sure how helpful it really was.
