Hi everyone. New to this in 2024 Micro Minnie

Hi everyone,
my wife and I just bought a new 2024 Micro Minnie. We're heading up the Olympic Peninsula in Washington in a few weeks for our first shake out cruise.
We're looking forward to exploring more of the Pacific Northwest in the coming years.

Cheers everyone.

-Ed & Jen

Greetings Ed & Jen,
The Olympic Peninsula sounds wonderful. You should have some OK weather by March.
Welcome to the forum.

Welcome. I think that you will learn much from this forum.
You should stop in La Push and buy a salmon. Inquire at the Quileute Oceanside resort on how/where to buy one. My wife and I got one caught that morning and it practically filled the fridge.
The natives are very friendly and helpful. Beautiful spot.
We have a 2022 Micro Minnie 2108 TB. Great trailer.
Happy travels.

Welcome Ed,
Your upcoming trip sounds great, but you’ll enjoy that trip much more if you take a 2 or 3 day trip to someplace a few miles from home first for a true shakedown that’s not a big vacation. If you go somewhere that’s very close to home you’ll get to test everything and still be close enough to run back home for things you forgot or didn’t plan on needing.

You’ll learn towing, setting up, breaking down and most importantly you’ll learn all the items that you don’t know how to operate.

Trying to do this on a vacation trip away from home “can” be a bad way to start a beautiful time in your new TT. I don’t mean to frighten you, this is just 25-years and 5-new RVs of experience speaking.

Whatever you do… Enjoy.

Agree, a shake down is imperative. I have only had my camper out 3 times and I have learned alot on each trip. Have fun! Jealous of your trip plans.
