New 5th Wheel Owner

I just purchased a 2016 Rockwood Signature 8286WS fifth wheel last Friday. It's the first one I have ever owned as I have always had TT. Looking to do some cross country trips with the kids and grandkids so I thought it was time to move up to a 5ver and a better towing experience. I haven't picked it up yet but thought I'd go to the RV Hall of Fame in Indiana on my first trip. If anyone else has one of these units and cares to comment on how they like it I'd appreciate it. The rig got all kinds of good reviews compared to the others I was looking at. I'm sure there will many questions to follow. Thanks

Was at the Hall of Fame last year. Nice, but don't expect it to take all day. Have fun.
