Newbie to the travel trailer world!

Hi guys and gals,

Thanks for having an awesome resource to be a part of. I look forward to catching up with the forums to learn how to customize and modify as we go.

I ordered a new NoBo 10.5 in July '20 and finally setting out to pick it up next week. This will be my first travel trailer and excited to utilizing the heck out of it.

I'm based out of Oregon and picking up the trailer in Trenton, Ohio...this being my first travel trailer, I'm seeking out input on what to look for as I do a walk-around with the dealer.

Thanks for having me part of the crew.

J
