Congratulations and welcome!

As the others have suggested, and as we did, spend as much time reading up on your TT, trailering, etc. as you can, and be sure to ask if you're unsure about something.

Take A Test Ride

Find a mattress that works. The stock mattresses I have seen are worse than worthless because you need to find a way to throw it away.

Sleep in the trailer a night or two. In your own yard or to a nearby campground. What works? How do they work? Try everything out so you are familiar with it.

We replaced our mattress, fixed the fan on the stove, figured out how to fill and empty the tanks, realized we did not have a frying pan, found the stove too small to cook much, tested the water heater on LP and AC, replaced CO2 and smoke detectors, etc, etc.

Take it for test runs.
