Greetings from Northern IL!

We are pretty new to trailer camping! This forum is going to be so helpful for us!! We got our start a couple summers ago with our Rockwood pop-up, and this fall we decided to take the plunge and expand into a 2019 Alpha Wolf! It just came home yesterday, and we couldn't be more excited!! My husband and I have two sons (12 & 10), and we could not be more excited to create 1000s of cherished memories in years to come! My question to you: looking back to your first days as a new camper owner, what is one thing you wish you knew or wished that somebody told you?

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Not knowing that the warranty was not like an automobile and that dealers you did not buy the rig from did not have to provide warranty service.

Smile nice to know

I would work through all electrical items - lights and appliances - and know for sure which are 12V and which are 110V operated.
