Call ahead and make sure the trailer has a winterizing system. If not, have them install one before you go to pick it up. Pick up a couple of gallons of antifreeze, you will need it where you live. Also make sure you have some wheel chocks.
Other things to look for: a package with the manuals for everything, also things like awning rods and jack handles.

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

I bought mine from Kyle and Earl at the oupost too, sight unseen, and had it shipped to my house over 1000 miles away. Been a few weeks and I still haven't tested every single thing on the camper, though I'll try to spend some more time with it this weekend. I had them file the warranty paperwork, and if I find any issues I'll take it in for repair at my local dealer.

And just to clarify, I'm not recommending that people do what I did, but if you do any of the suggestions provided here, you're doing way more than I did. I'm just giving an example of the least amount you could do is sign the paperwork saying it was delivered to you, and hope the rest is covered under warranty

We video taped our walk through and it sure has come in handy.

Any chances you could post the walkthrough on youtube or something? Would be great to watch.
