2 questions actually.

Do you really know what you're getting into?

This is the most addictive hobby a person could ever get involved with. Along with all the necessities that have been mentioned here, and you will need them, keeping up with or wanting("needing") what somebody else has will be one of the most expensive and the most satisfying(and frustrating) things you will ever experience. I thought I had enough "toys" in my TT and would be happy with that. But some wise guy on FRF comes up with something new and we all have to have it!

Unless you are independently wealthy, don't try to go out and buy everything at once. You'll know what you have to have when you don't have it. Then, keep adding to your "want to haves" as you go along.

But above all, be safe and !!!!
hahaha... being "out of my mind" is something I get asked daily.

As for expensive hobbies, I guess my wife is in for a big surprise, cause she thinks the fact that I am a gun guy and a competitive shooter is an expensive hobby.... uh oh...

If you plan on staying where there is cable TV then a good coaxial cable and barrel connector.

I would get two just in case.

25ft RG6 Coax Cable - F Type at FireFold.com

Again I would get two because one can get lost.

You should have stuck to the dealers list. It was probably much shorter.

Most importantly a good attitude. As all can probably agree more than likely something will not go as planned on your first trip and on many others. Take it with ease and remember it is to be FUN! Pop a top have a good laugh and enjoy the memories that you make Happy camping

HaHa, don't need a night stand. We have a little ledge on both sides of the bed. But I don't want to hear about this cable carrier!

................OK, what is it?!

I know I'll hate you after I see it.
