Default 1st trip out.

We are on a sort of camping trip. I say "sort of", because we are at a KOA in Albuquerque visiting family. I really, really hope to get one night in the forest on the way home. So far the little t139 is delightful. A few things are a bit of a pain, like folding up and setting up the table night and morning, but we are sort of used to that. It's a valid trade off for the size and weight. Van is doing fine, great, in fact. But the mileage is a shock. We usually ger 25+ mpg and now we are averaging 14.
I guess it's to be expected.
Awning works, all appliances and features work great. Bed is very comfy. Air flow is not great, we will need some kind of fan, since we don't often plug in to shore power.
Anyway, I'm very happy with the little trailer!

14 mpg?? I almost never get better than 10 -- congratulations! Bad MPG is just the price we pay for towing a house down the road at 60 mph.

that average includes some unhitched around Albuquerque driving. Straight highway average is 13-14. I'm still driving around 55. As our confidence grows, we will drive a little faster.
I was looking at your travel blogs! You guys are my heros!
