welcome to the forum !

one mod I would suggest is buying or making some jack stabilizers . A king pin stabilizer IMO is a waste of time,money and space . I made my own but they can be bought as a kit . YOU will notice fore and aft movement once you start using the unit especially if you have kids .
heres what my home made ones look like . Less than $100.00 investment.

You re going to enjoy it inspite of probably seeing probably another 25 cents a gallon added to your fuel bite!

Looks like a nice trailer though. I have a lot of misgivings about slideouts, but I am the odd duck on that and the outside kitchen.

If you get a genset, you might want to get one with remote start. That is nice when you re rolling down the road about 1/2 hour from your rest stop. You can click on the genset and get the trailer cooled down for your stop.
