Welcome from Sunbury, Ohio!
My advice would be to read (a lot) in this and other forums before deciding mods and methods before you jump in. It can seem overwhelming and costly at firs so take your time and enjoy each mod goal as you need them..

Welcome from Delaware.

Just take it easy, don't speed down the highway and as others have said, read a lot. You can find a lot of good info here if you use the search button.
Good Luck and have FUN

Welcome and enjoy your new 2019 FSX. By looking at the pic of your camper I would suggest you put some vent covers over your ceiling vents so you can leave them open in the rain for fresh air. Have fun this weekend!

Go slow, don't worry about the hot rods out there passing you.

Find a large empty parking lot and practice backing if this is new to you.

Make sure you have good side view mirrors or extensions and check your view.

Check your trailer brake controller and how to use it. You may have to adjust as you go.

Swing wide, don't turn too tight.

Plan your stops at gas pumps and make sure you can get in and out.

Be kind to the big truckers out there making a living and take it easy!
