First brand new camper SP 220

We picked up our first brand new camper on Saturday! Sport 220... We love it. Unfortunately first trip out if the back yard isn't until mother's day weekend!

Have you been camping in the yard?
Best way to get to know your unit BEFORE you go
On your first trip.
Congrats and welcome.
I remember when my dw and I bought our first new one!
Goo luck and post pics

Thanks everyone! We have not yet camped in the backyard, but it is actually one of our favorite things to do when time or funds do not permit going anywhere. We have water, electric, cable, a nice firepit...what more could you want! We position the camper so that we can't see our house and it's almost like not being at home! The camper is fully set up at this time in the backyard as we move stuff from the old camper to the new but we won't get a full fun of everything until we de-winterize it. The nights here are still a bit cold and we don't want to chance it for another couple of weeks. I do enjoy just walking inside for a few minutes and gazing around at our shiny new toy!

Just curious, anyone know why there is no leveling bubble for side to side leveling? The one for front to back leveling is on the outdoor tv mount but why not one for side to side? A friend of mine with another brand camper said theirs didn't have one either? That doesn't seem to make sense to me!

About the levels. We have one on our power jack but I installed two on the trailer that work better.

They are normally a dealer installed item.
the dealer probably thought you should buy it!

Congrats! We have the same camper. Just picked it up a couple weeks ago and are on its inaugural camping trip in Florida. Have had a few issues, some due to desler's failure to do a check in all systems. (see separate thread). We wish you many happyin camping trips in your new RV.
