Rookie from MA
I am in the process of purchasing my first camper. I was just out measuring my driveway and have started to get a little bit of panic when realizing what a beast I am purchasing. I have a 2018 F-250 long bed diesel that I have purchased and will pick up later this week. I also found a 325pack13 toy hauler in Tennessee that I will be driving down to get in early December. Driving it home with my boyfriend and teenage daughter will be the first time I have driven a 5th wheel in 20 years (a few times driving a gooseneck horse trailer back then). My boyfriend had a 35 foot travel trailer about 10 years ago.
I have wanted a camper for 10 years and a little Covid-craziness led me to pull the trigger in a big way. When we pick this thing up we will know nothing more than what the seller tells us about how it all works. They are wonderful so far, but I donít want to drive them crazy with beginner questions.
So, where do you suggest I go to learn about this? Basic definitions, how does a generator, propane, etc all work? I am so excited but also very nervous and need to learn all I can to feel better about this adventure!
(Especially driving home 14 hours...should we run propane heaters if we pull over in a rest area? Can I bring a generator and just plug-and-play? What hitch do I need to get put in my truck? And on, and on!!!)
Thanks and nice to meet everyone!
