We are new at this

Hi everyone,

My husband Henry and I (Gaby) are totally new at this. Ok we tented when we were young. That was many moons ago. We are both self employed and we have decided that this might just be a great way to get away. We have friends that have 5th wheels and we just purchased a new 07 8528BHSS. We are excited about it. I am not new in regards to 5th wheels as I used to drive transport. Yet I hear all sorts of scary stories. Is there anything different we should know? We are picking it up this Friday

Greg,
Like dropping the 5th wheel. I can't imagine that happening but it sounds like it does. Ppl pulling your pin at the rest areas/ truck stops etc.. I guess I would have never thought about it but I now will always check to make sure the pin is secure.
