New Trailer Day!

This coming Saturday, we will join the Travel Trailer family, bringing home a 2019 Nash 23D.

Towing with a 2007 GMC Sierra Classic, 2500HD, Crew cab, 4WD, Duramax.

Not new to the Open Road Forums, we have had 12 great years with a popup trailer, and have frequented the forums for discussions on that.

Now we approach retirement and find ourselves transitioning from weekend and weeklong same destination trips to traveling the country with frequent overnighters for which the popup was a bit too much setup/teardown.

While we've been preparing and researching for this purchase, the reality hit home when I suddenly had to get some things in order before towing it off the lot:
- Choose a hitch
- Swap out my small mirrors for the bigger tow mirrors
- Insurance
- Find a storage lot

Still need to pick up some chocks and choose a leveling system.

Most of our camping style will carry over to the TT, with the new experience of The Black Tank :E Oh yeah, need a sewer hose...

Our camping style tends toward the primitive so planning a full-on solar upgrade, maybe Li-Ion batteries (?)($!)

Looking forward to our first shakedown run, probably in October.

No pics yet, here's a link to the mfgr web page:

Will need to change my signature!

You don't need to add anything, The Nash TTs have scissor style stabilizer jacks from the factory.

Congrats! We did the same thing sort of. We did tent, Pop-up, HTT, and now we too are looking at a TT upgrade this year.

Have fun and make lots of memories.

Congratulations on your new trailer. Since you will be new to sewer hoses, I would recommend one of those clear adapters that go between the trailer's outlet and the sewer hose. It is nice to know what is going on when dumping.

Your plans and situation sound very familiar. We just took delivery of our new trailer, Forest River T2460RL, and sold our tent trailer listed in the signature. Also, we are preparing for Sept. 1st 2020, our planned last day of work in our current situation. We are planning to sell the house and move, maybe out of California, Arizona is one of our possibilities.

In any case your post and plans and list of got to get done things sound very familiar. I was researching some of those issues when I read your post for Sept. and would be very interested in how things are turning out.

Congratulations. You will like the 23D. We bought ours in April 2016 & have enjoyed it twice to Arizona & lots of places in between.

Nash is one of the nicer travel trailers out there. Northwood builds their own frames, unlike most companies, who use Lippert frames

The Nash is a travel trailer, not a camper.

Northwood does have a line of campers though, the Arctic fox 865, 811, 990, 1140, 1150

Seriously?

Far as I’m concerned, if you go camping in a trailer, it is a camper. And so is the person using it.
Anyhow, I hope the OP enjoys his new camper/trailer/home on wheels/whatever he wants to call it.

Stuff rolling in from Amazon... dogbone adapters, chocks, X-chocks, Lynx blocks... Coming: surge protector, sewer hose, water pressure regulator... Soon as we verify mattress size - sheets and a foam topper. Most of the other camp stuff we already have.

Planning mods and upgrades... (might be a full time job! :B )

Was thinking I would look at tires... a lot of recommendations for the made in USA Goodyear Endurance... Yesterday, I was looking at the pics of the trailer on my dealer's website, and I see a closeup of the tires. Yep, Goodyear Endurance. Yay Northwood for not cheaping out. (scratch that upgrade/expense from the list!)

Don't forget water filter 😃

For me one of the best upgrades we did to our trailer was install the BAL version of the JT Strong-Arms, removed all of the shake, shimmy, and roll from the trailer.
