View Full Version : Newbie - Excited and Nervous !!!

Hello fellow members,

My wife, daughter, 2 great danes and I will take delivery of our 2012 Keystone Bullet 281BHS on saturday!

This is our first RV and while I am excited, I am also nervous. I have spent hours on this forum and I think it is helping me with many things like set up tips, modifications, service and warranty issues, and "what not to do's"

I feel overwhelmed and know I will screw up some things, but hope it is not something important. I'm sure I will have loads of questions after our first trip in a week.

Thanks again for everyone's contribution to make this site such a valuable resource!


ps: I will try and post pics of our great dane traveling partners

Welcome. If you go to the "KEYSTONE QUESTIONS" (http://www.keystonerv.org/forums/showthread.php?t=5129) section of our forum you will find a great Pre-delivery check list that will help you avoid any problems with your dealer when the trailer arrives. Good luck and enjoy your new trailer, Hank

I'll bet the great danes get any bunk they want!!!!

Hello and Welcome to the forum.:wlcm:
As you seem to have found out there is lots of good info here, and dont be afraid to ask questions (thats how we learn)
Its nice to see some one else from Wisconsin joining. We are from Florence WI. (about 140 miles north of you)
That is a cool trailer. If you bought it from your local dealer it may be the same one we looked at earlier this year Before we decided on our Outback.
Enjoy your Travel Trailer and have fun on your maiden voyage.

Do take the checklist with you. I wish I had known about it before picking our Montana up. The things we weren't shown were the 3rd valve for the galley. How to work the stereo, how to work the thermostat and how the duct stuff works. They went way to fast on the water hook ups outside, didn't show us the remote and many more things. I was more interested in the tires (go figure).

I thought of something else they didn't teach us and I was so disappointed. We had the day/night shades and all I could tell was they weren't keeping ppl from looking in, then in May while camping the BF kept looking at them and pulled down on the dark color and it was a blind! Finally people couldn't see. I had read and read and never did see the solution. So have them show you the shades.
