Brand New Stealth

Hi all,
I'm picking up my 2012 Stealth FS2410 on Friday morning. I'm excited as heck to have this new addition to my life. Immediately upon picking it up, I'm heading to the woods for Elk hunting. My question is this:

Other than the standard kitchen stuff, and other knick knacks, what do I need to do before I set it up in the woods? I'll be towing about 8 hours before getting to my destination and want to arrive camp-ready. Obviously, I have to fill up the water and fuel tanks, but other than that, I'm a little in the dark on what to prepare. Do I have to sanitize if I'm just going to shower and wash hands?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Matt

Congrats on your Stealth. Our first trip in ours was a 10 hour drive. Make sure your propane tanks are full. If you run the heater a lot that could be an issue if you're going to be out for awhile. I only use the water in the trailer for showers and washing hands, etc like u mentioned.

Since you will be out hunting possibility of some harsh weather a large outside rug would be a good idea. You could take off yours boots if they are muddy. Did your toy hauler come with an onboard generator, I have a sandstorm with one and when we take showers or do the dishes and have the water pump going and have lights on we will run it to keep batteries charged since you will be in he mountains and this time of year it will be cold so you would want to keep yours batteries good and charged for when you run the heater at night. Might want to take extra propane bottles if you will be staying a while. Because your fridge, water heater, furnace and if you cook inside will all be using propane. Good look hunting. You will love your new toy hauler

Dang! No wonder I can't find a "good" toy hauler here in the east!

Y'all (left coasters) have had toy haulers for-EVER!

We had a hard time finding the little one we have now. Had to go to the factory in Elkhart and order it. Nothing here in the southeast.

When ever we show up at a campground, we are an oddity. People gather around like we are from another planet. They always say "what a great idea"...like DUH!!

Even if you dont have a motor cycle or four wheeler, toy haulers just make plain good sense to us. Can carry our canoe, or if we had bicycles they would fit too.
