Hello, from Tellico Plains, TN

Hi, just got into a class C from a pull behind, both toy haulers.
I've been retired 2 1\2 years now and still like pulling a small trailer with my motorcycle carrying a tent and gear to go camping.
Usually solo on those trips.
Did the trailer toy hauler by pickup truck, and it was too small (17'), so now have a 31' driveable toy hauler, a Thor Outlaw.
Even though a dedicated bedroom would be nice, we inflate a mattress in the garage part, and that seems to work okay for now.
I spent my working life as a machine repairman/machinist and been mechanicking most all my life.
I don't know everything, but I know enough to do most of my own repairs, so much so, I built a huge shop, and even have a tire machine and balancer!
My plans here are to occasionally browse the tech forums, add my knowledge and experiences to help others, and also learn from others as even I know I may get stumped from time to time.
We try to travel with a motorcycle and a trike when we go.
Living in the mountains of good old Tennessee.
Like to live a little on the wild side too!
Like to be in the wind.
See you down the road...

Welcome to the Party!
Tell us a little bit more about your Toy haulers, and the toys that you haul in them!
I carried my Can Am Spyder in my Outlaw 29-H...

Welcome aboard.

Been through Tellico Plains a couple times while doing "The Tail" and the Cherholla on my GW trike or just "going over the mountains" to see relatives in Mississippi. Beautiful ride especially when coupled with the BRP.
