to the forum and congratulations on the new camper! I would recommend that your first few outings be near home and at camping locations which are near resources such as grocery and RV supply stores. I say this because if there are any issues which arise that need to be repaired by the dealer, you will not be very far away and inevitably there will be things which you will forget or did not think of and it will be nice to not have to drive very far to obtain them. Don't start right out with the 2-week, multi-state, dream of a lifetime vacation. Start slow and easy, perhaps even camp in your driveway a few nights to get everything figured out and decide what you will need.
Good luck and happy camping!
