Picking Up Saturday

We purchased our TT in January, and we are picking up from the dealer this saturday 4/9. I found this forum right after buying, and have found this place very valuable for info and just plain ole' good people. When I go to pick it up, I have my PDI checklist (From a member), Blue Ox WD W/Sway (From a member), and will follow up on the extended warranty from FR after from a posting here. I have added a transmission cooler, tow mirrors, and other suggestions from reading here. Overall, I want to say thanks for helping me prepare to be as ready as I can be, and comfortable for when I go to get our new baby...Thanks!

Big Dawg,

We want to see pics.

Hope the weather is good for you next weekend. I am seriously itching to get our camper bacl out again but am half afraid to de-winterize up here in NW Ohio. Still getting very cold some nights.

O.K. Gang, sorry I have not posted anything yet, things went great. We are very blessed. The WD Hitch I got from Hoffkm worked awesome, did to sway at all coming home, and the truck did great too. We have been spending the weekend loading up all the stuff from the old camper into this one and have plenty of room. I am putting a couple of picture up of it in our driveway. We hope to put it to the test next weekend. One question, where did everyone mount their TP dispenser?

Over the years I have concluded that the reason the factory doesn't mount it is that they can't figure it out either!!

Congrats and very nice
Cant answer your TP mount question - unless you have a hole / open space under the sink top - made a great mounting place for mine
