Just picked up our new Wildwood yesterday

Just purchased our first trailer Wildwood 22rks and picked it up yesterday. Excited and scared all at the same time
Any words of wisdom would be much appreciated.

Dont be scared. Go out this weekend and have a good time. I remember the jitters when we got our first camper.

I think the quick walk around of everything was a little overwhelming. Thank god I had my parents there with us otherwise we would of been lost. No mention of extended warranty. Found the info in our packet once we got home for $150 with FR. Just really not to impressed with the whole pickup experience. Hoping the camping experiences to come will make up for the headaches we had the day we picked up the trailer.

Congratulations. I guess the only advice would be to go slow and take it easy until you are used to it. I'm sure your good experiences will outnumber the bad. If you have an issue at a campsite don't be afraid to ask your neighbours. Most are only too happy to help out so don't be discouraged if you occasionally run into one bad apple. Good luck and enjoy.

to the forum and congratulations on the new camper! I would recommend that your first few outings be near home and at camping locations which are near resources such as grocery and RV supply stores. I say this because if there are any issues which arise that need to be repaired by the dealer, you will not be very far away and inevitably there will be things which you will forget or did not think of and it will be nice to not have to drive very far to obtain them. Don't start right out with the 2-week, multi-state, dream of a lifetime vacation. Start slow and easy, perhaps even camp in your driveway a few nights to get everything figured out and decide what you will need.

Good luck and happy camping!

Glenn
