Thumbs up New to the camper, too!

Roadrash, we have also graduated from a poptop camper, last August. Went from a 1987 Starcraft Nova, to a Prime Time Crusader 5th wheel. Hope you enjoy your new rig as much as we are!

Welcome and congratulations on the new rig.
We also made the jump, from a Coleman popup to our Sunseeker and have not looked back.
If you search the forum there are multiple posts on the "things to pack" lists. Everybody customizes to their needs and experience as they go along, but they are a good basic starting point.
Invest in the Rhino Flex hose and the clear elbow connector. Makes life a bit easier. You don't want to be like Robin Williams in "RV", right?
Saw that happen last year at a campground. Fellow didn't screw the fitting in and had no one there to hold it down with the foot. Pulled the black tank valve and Yucky POOOO!

Congrats on your new rv. You need to invest in a surge protector asap. I will be getting one for our new th before our next trip. Happy RVing!

Welcome from Ontario. Congratulations on your new camper. As mentioned, this string could go on for hundreds of entries for all the "Stuff" you need. You will find that over time you will spend as much buying your "Stuff" as the cost of your camper. Especially when you are at a CG and walk around and see something neat and must have.

I agree the rhino system is a good one.
I just replaced mine with the rhino.

Other than the PDI, the must haves (if this is what you're looking for) are (to name a few):
wheel chocks and leveling blocks
WHITE fresh water hose and pressure regulator
Surge protector for your power cord
Good quality black sewer hose (already mentioned)
small basic tool kit
RV toilet paper
and from here the list goes on and on.
