Welcome to the wonderful world of RV ownership. Everyone has their own reason for owning one. Be prepared to encounter problems you wouldn't ordinary experience from something new. It really helps if you are knowledgeable enough to be able to fix problems yourself. If not, hopefully if your purchasing from dealer that will take good care of you. We have owned several and have thoroughly enjoyed every one. I do a lot of nickel dime things myself. You will likely find issues with each trip but the experiences and memories made will, by far, be outweighed.

Strongly suggest you go to the top of this page, click on the Library tab, then click on the PDI Checklist under the Most Popular Files list in the 2nd box on the left.

This list is for hybrids, but covers most everything you need to worry about. Make sure the dealer goes over everything on the list that applies to you. Some people video the PDI with their phones.

Greetings from down the road in Alexandria, KY.

I surely hope that you have done enough research to know that your Tow Vehicle can handle that trailer.

Good luck with the new trailer
