New and Picked Up Our First TT Today

Hi all from Ohio. Just picked up our Wildwood 282QBXL today from General RV. Walk through went well, outside fridge had a dent which they replaced before we left. Missed a few minor things I can fix. Pulled it home with my 2019 F150, opted for the Equalizer 4 point and did great. It was very windy on the hour and half drive home (30+ mph gusts) hardly swayed except for two strong gusts. Cant wait to enjoy our camper.

Congratulations on your new trailer purchase and welcome to the forum.
Good to hear your first trip with the trailer and hitch went well in the wind, many have to make many adjustments to handle well, especially in wind.

Welcome from another Buckeye! You don't say if your new to RV-ing but if you are, I suggest you use the search box up to for a few topics.

Maintenance
Water Damage
Checklist

To get you started.

Know that if you would rather have video, YouTube is a great resource also and searching the same topics with RV in from of them will get you in the right direction.

I suggest the above as a learn from other peoples mistakes rather than having it happen to you. Enjoy the new camper, make it your own and keep the tools handy as it's a lot of fun to make it your own balanced with fixing a lot of little things that go wrong with a home on wheels.

Try a night or 2 driveway camping. Gets you familiar and easy to grab stuff you “need”.
