Take your time, make sure it is level before you raise the roof, have a good sense of humor and above all have a great time.
Oh, and be sure to tie down the awning.

Our first time out, I was real new to backing it up. When we got to the campsite I warned the sites next to that this was our first time. I was sort of joking so they would not laugh at me too hard, not really asking for help but they jumped right up and helped us back it in.....fellow campers are usually willing to help, you just have too ask. And having this app on your smart phone is key too.

Congrats on your new Flagstaff! I just purchased my 2014 Flagstaff Mac 228d 2 weeks ago and used it for the first time this past weekend. I loved it! I had bought a Barker 32 gallon 4 wheel tote tank. It has pneumatic wheels and can attach to my hitch. The tote was primarily used for my sink waste water (didn't have dump station on my individual campsite) but I was able to dispose very easily by towing it to dump site on campground.
