Novice Surveyor SP295

Good morning fellow campers,
We bought our very first TT yesterday in Orillia, Ontario. We've been searching high and low for the last 2 weeks and were able to track down a 2014 SP295. We pick it up in 2 weeks! We have only ever camped with tents at the beginning and then a pop up. We're ecstatic to use our new baby. My 17 year old boy is 6'5", my 16 year old boy is the same height as me, 6'3". The SP295 came with a barrel roof and this is one of the main selling features for us. I've never had a TT and now I need how to learn to maintain it as best as I can and keep it for many enjoyable years to come hopefully. They want to put Diamond Kote on it. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new Surveyor SP295. IMHO save your money on the Diamond Kote and just wash/wax it a couple times a year. Keep an eye on all the caulk on the roof and sides.
