Hello everyone. Nice forum you've got here, Lots of information.
Looking forward to contributing what knowledge I have.

A little background, My wife and I had been tenting for 8 years before she said if you want to continue camping after our first child is born, we need a trailer. Any chance I get permission to spend money, I never fail to take advantage. I spent winter 07/08 comparison shopping. Basically when compared to other similar trailers, there was no comparison in fit & finish.
So we ended up with an X-189 FBR, and have been very happy with it.
We put ~6000kms on it last year, basically out every weekend in the summer. They only major issues we've had with it is the fridge circuit board would only work on propane, instead of 3way. And there was a small propane leak on the stove.
Oh yeah, can't forget about the crappy service that is provided up here for TT's. It took them 4 months to get the right circuit board in for the fridge. I definitely won't be bringing it back to them, time to do everything myself.

Anyways. Time to go.

Jeff

lol. Sounds like the conversation i had with my wife. Once we found out we had a little one on the way last summer i gave her an ultimatum. If she wanted to keep on camping/rving we would be getting rid of our "vintage" 23' Airstream and getting something what had bunks and bed that was always ready from someone to lay down on without having to be folded down and room for us and the dog.

I won! Woohoo!

Grats and welcome to the club.
