I suspect the main difference you will feel versus your popup is the suck in/then out when a tractor trailer goes by. This is just the nature of towing something so large. We were told to stay alert and pay attention to what is coming up behind you so that you have both hands firmly on the wheel when it happens.
Nice to hear of a successful first trip out!

Good piece of advice to helping control when big rigs pass. Also, it helps to move over to the far right line as the semi comes up to pass you. The more space the less the effect of air pressure between the two vehicles.

Have a good one everyone!

We have the equalizer hitch and p2 brake controller as well. Jumped right in on the maiden voyage though, loaded up the 5 kids in the armada, packed the roo for a 6 day trip, 4 hours away, including going around the dc beltway. No issues, towing....,and found accelerating slightly when being passed by a tractor trailer minimized the suck in from the semi.

Silly question as wife and I are pondering upgrading to N 23ikss- do you have to open one/ both slides to get to the fridge and load it?

Yes you do. Where we store ours next to the house there isn't a lot of room because of trees. We are able to put the fridge-side slide out half way and we can access the back. A little bit of a pain, but really not a huge deal.

agreed! coming from a pop up we have found it so easy to just push the button to put out one of the slides! only takes seconds.

Ok thanks for the answers. Our current pop up has the fridge directly across fro the door so we don't have to open the top to load it. Thus we learned what questions to ask.
