p.s I work for a chevy dealer in service so if there is any questions I can help you with feel free.
The Dealer will usually have an area that is like a 'store'. Give yourself a little more time to stroll through this area. Have paper and pencil to give you ideas of what to get 'now' and what to get later. Fight the urge to buy one of everything.... (the urge will never go away...but fight it for now) 'better' awning lights, better towels and dishes, better lawn chairs, better 's'more makers, are always around the corner to pick up later....
get the bare basics of what you need on your first trip or two and add from there.
There is no way to learn better than to do it..... go 'slow'.... Never trust your 'spotter' when backing into a site, until they know what they are doing... (left is right and right is left and 'someone' anit paying attention...) Never trust the nut behind the wheel (you) until you know what you are truly doing...ie. take your time and be aware of what is around you and what your need will be ('trust but verify') when going into and out of camping spots. (my spotter is still in training after 30 years
, she does a great job.. it is me that I don't trust....
)Keep the kids in vehicle with you until 'parked'. Yes they want to help and they will in the Future.... dad does not need the stress of wondering where they are and paying attention of getting into your 'site'. It will be great, go slow and have fun.
