Picking up new 5th wheel

Tomorrow is the day! We are finally picking up our new Rockwood RFL8280 Signature Ultra Lite on Sat. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!! This is our first 5th wheel(have camped in our pop-up for 15 years). The wife and I are a few years from retirement and thought this was the perfect time to buy. We spent most of the last year going to RV shows and visiting dealers. We finally setteled of Tom Rapers in Fairfield, Ohio.
I hope i can get some sleep tonight.

Pictures to follow.

Mike and Lynda Ragan

Congrats on the 5th wheel. I know you will like it. We had three over the years and loved towing them. Everyone seemed to get a little longer and higher. Our last one had a satellite dish on top and we had a height of 13'4". Just watch those trees when backing up and turn wide when you make a turn. 5th Wheels tend to cut across corners.
