Furnishing your camper is like furnishing another home! We pretty much had to buy almost everything we use in our current kitchen, except for supplies for the oven. We wanted good quality items, but didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for everything. We ended up buying most of our stuff on Amazon since you can read reviews on each item and usually Amazon has the best prices. The items below are things we got and are working great thus far.
So, I don’t know about you guys but we had the toughest time attaching our hitch ball into our coupler the first time we hitched up. We kept backing the car in and out to try to match the hitch ball underneath the coupler to see if we can get it to connect, but every time we did we could get the ball in the coupler, but we could not get the lock in place. This was super frustrating and we were at our wits end! At the dealership, when they hitched up, they didn’t really give us any tips or pointers on how to do this easily, they just had us back up our tow vehicle and somehow miraculously the ball went into the coupler and easily locked into place. So for future hitches, I did a little thinking and noticed that when we unhitched the ball would slip out in front of the coupler when the ball was totally released. So this got me thinking to have the ball slightly in front of the opening so that when we do lower our tongue jack the hitch ball would literally be rubbing the front part of the coupler and ultimately getting sucked or pulled into the opening of the coupler. This is kind of hard to explain so I made a quick video demonstrating this so hopefully it’ll make it easier for anyone else who is having issues with this as well.
Before we purchased our camper, we (actually my husband Jake) did a ton of research on campers and what each camper offered. We visited various dealerships and browsed countless online websites as well. After weeks of research, the Rockwood Geo Pro had everything we needed and more! We knew we wanted to do a lot of Boondocking as we have done a lot of dispersed camping or primitive camping with our tent. We learned the best, most scenic camping was at dispersed sites. You just can’t find solitude and peace at a crowded campground. So, we wanted a trailer that could handle going off-road. We were also interested in renewable energy that could power our batteries and not always have to rely on hook ups or a generator. Living in Colorado has its share of crazy weather, so we wanted to be prepared for all kinds of harsh conditions. With all of these things in mind, the Geo Pro was our answer!
