Smile New to Travel Trailers

Hi all! Though I have camped for many years, and have pulled a small Jayco pop-up for a few, I get my first "real" (no offense meant to pop-up enthusiasts!) trailer, a x17z next week!

My wife and I plan a shake down trip (3day) to a local park, then a 45 day trip, Oshawa to Cape Breton to Victoria!

Any and all advice is always appreciated! At this point I don't know what I don't know!

I pull with a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with the factory tow package.

Thanks all!
Stephen and Laura

Congratulations and welcome!

Best advice we got when new to camping, and that served us well, was to take it slow and easy. I have a feeling your previous experience will serve you very well.
