Welcome from SE Michigan! There is a vast wealth of information here, simply use the search option for any question you might have. I advise to take your time towing, keep a close eye on your trailer tires, make sure the dealer sets up your hitch properly, pay close attention during your dealership walk through, and enjoy your camper!

Welcome from Wisconsin. Weather it's a new unit or used go over everything to make sure all works correctly.

Welcome from SW Georgia. As everyone has said pay close attention during the walk through, ask questions on anything that you are not completely sure you understand. Keep asking until you are sure.
Happy Camping

Welcome from Ontario. Spend a night in your driveway and test all the systems, better if it breaks, leaks or doesn't work there then on the road or hundreds of kilometers later.

do research. visits several dealers and negotiate with them all. Do not buy anything until you sleep on it for a few days. check into warranty work and 'who' will do it 'near Casper'. Owning a camper is fun, but there is a lot of work to it also. Do you have the 'truck' to pull it with?

there are a lot of 'little' things to look at before you buy.
