New to RVing

Looks like no one has posted on here in a while. Thought I would drop in and say HI. Me and the wife just bought a 2007 Sandpiper TT. We take delivery of it on 3/4/07. We are looking forward to heading out next month on our first trip. Any advice anyone might have? We have learned a lot from these forums so far. Thanks in advance.

Congratulations on the new rig Robert. The advice I would give you after you have done your Pre-Delivery Inspection is to get the trailer home and set it up as if you are camping, and test everything again. This will also give you good practice on setting up camp in the comfort of your own driveway. Run all of the systems as if you were camping to be sure there are no glitches. After you are satisfied everything works as it should, load up and hit the road!!!

Welcome, Robert.

Driveway camping is a great way to test your new TT.
We did it when we got our first TT. Like Kim said, it will give you practice setting up.

Have fun,
