Hello everyone! We've had our little FF for about a year and a half now and really like it. It's a 2005 T139FK. I'll try to post some pictures.
Here's one at Tallulah Falls State Park:


And one at our favorite stop on earth, Long Ridge CG in Hiawassee, Ga.


Caught my better half with that "deer in the headlights" look.

I'll try to find some more recent shots as these are from last year. I need to update my PhotoBucket.....

Welcome! In 2005, we bought a 2003 T-139 used -- we kept it for several years and liked it so much that we bought a new X-139 in 2012. They are great little trailers for two people who get along really well in a small space. They are not for everyone, though -- some folks would find them claustrophobic!

When the wife and I first started looking, I had selected (on line) a 19' toy hauler because it was very economical and lite weight. When we actually visited a display and went inside one, the wife said no way. She is claustrophobic of/in smaller spaces so that took care of any thought of a small unit. We ended up with the XT-276 and are both pleased with our choice.

Hi Eagle,
We just happened to stop in at a Used Trailer place north of us a ways and looked at what was on the lot. The manager said he had something coming in that might fit our needs. It had been raining every day and everything was muddy; the trailer owner was afraid that he might get stuck... so, we had to wait a couple weeks. The trailer turned out to be what we wanted... It is fine empty, but gets cramped real quick when I load mt ATV in; I had to hunt to find small sized ATV that had at least 400cc and 4-wheel drive!

Hi John C:

Yes, I fully understand. Same with the unit we looked at that the wife nixed. I didn't think it was to bad empty but with the Harley loaded, impossible to use the kitchen area and no place to sit. Also any tie down straps hindered movement or access to the entrance/exit door.
I'm glad we did NOT purchase it and got a larger unit.

Thanks everyone for the welcome. I'm learning about posting pictures and attachments so bear with me. (There is some differences between various forums I guess.)

It can become "close" in there!
My wife and I have been friends and partners since we were teenagers and neighbors. So we really can sense when it's time to take a walk around the campground, etc.
We camped for years, still do sometimes, in our GMC camper van. It's even smaller the the 139.
