Default Hi from a new fun finder owner

Hi everyone,

We just bought our first travel trailer, a used 2009 Fun Finder X 189 FDS.

We are really looking forward to testing it this Summer!

Welcome,

I purchased my first travel trailer, specifically a Toy Hauler, in 2012.

Lots of good info on this forum. Questions, just ask.

We have had our 2007 160X for a couple of years, No real problems with it. Tows just fine with our 2014 Sorento. For us and dog enough room. Plus we can go pretty much anywhere we want. No site space limitations. Great step up for our coleman popup.

Hi, Mat!

Welcome to the Fun Finder Forum. We hope you have many fun (and safe) miles with your 189FDS!

Where's your first trip? This your RV?

Hi michellep,

Yes, it's our first RV. Funny story, we weren't really planning on buying a travel trailer until we bought our new SUV about two months ago!

We wanted to rent a pop-up for part of the summer, but with everything factored in, renting a trailer (a tent trailer with no bathroom!) would cost almost 30% of buying a real travel trailer!

We're not sure where we will go, but we are thinking at 2 or 3 long weekends and one 7 day trip.

A bit off topic but how do you like your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

Just rolled over 1,000 miles on my 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk 4x4, 3.2 L V-6 and LOVE IT!!

Our previous 2014 Ram 1500 4x2 had the same V-6 Pentastar that you have and it was an awesome engine. It pulled our previous 3,500 lb trailer over 8,200 miles last summer and got 14.3 mpg for the entire distance ( about 300 miles of that was non-towing).

Everyone I've met camping from Quebec has been in an Alto
