I wonder if at the end of the day we pay for any "free" stuff. I'd rather buy what I need and have the choice of brand, price and seller. There are three 5th wheels in my block and being the wise astute (kidding) guy I am I went to them to fully discuss exactly what I needed in my first ever RV and the optional equipment that would be easier to have installed prior to delivery. Then I went to a local campground and spent the day getting suggestions on how to set up camp and what stuff I'd need. I supplemented all that with you tube videos and never needed any help. The truth is that I did none of this and scrambled to play catch up on knowledge and needs. Now, 20 months in I can see the need for a slide topper. I've seen old timers suggest renting a motor home prior to buying one. Camping for us isn't what we thought it would be, especially with a yappy dog. We continue though to look forward to long trips and meeting great campers.
So, unless you are experienced and that experience has given you wisdom, you can't go wrong using this forum and asking people for opinions. Me, I still bumble along but every once in a while I glean information that saves me money and embarrassment. Good Luck
