Suggestions for new EVO owners

Hi all,

We will be bringing home our gently used 2014 EVO T3250 to prepare it for our first adventure. We haven't owned a camper for 20 years and certainly not one this long.

My husband and I were looking for advice and suggestions.

1. What are things you find necessary when camping and traveling/towing?

2. We are towing it with a 3/4 ton 4x4 Yukon. The dealer is installing a Husky centerline WDH. We also purchased mirror extensions. Is there anything else you suggest with the towing/moving process?

3. When we go through the final inspection with the dealer before taking it home, is there anything in particular that we should look for or be concerned about?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions and advice.

J & T, San Antonio, TX

Before signing the final paperwork and accepting delivery inspect the unit from top to bottom while checking everything. A flashlight will be useful. Look for signs of water damage.

It's easier to get things taken care of while the unit is still on the lot and you haven't accepted delivery. Some members have found issues with their RV but took it so they could go camping and then had trouble getting items fixed in a timely matter.

Thanks for the advice. We did a very thorough inspection and the salesman was excellent in showing/explaining everything and how they worked. We didn't find any issues with the TT. We have found some stuff on a previous walkthrough when we put money down and they had fixed everything. We plan to take it out in a few weeks, locally, to give it a good shakedown before we do any serious traveling. I also want to research the tires on it before going too far. We have read too many stories of people having blowouts on practically new tires.

Thanks Again

John & Theresa
