New 264BHW Owner from Texas

Hello all,
I'm a total newbie to the RV lifestyle. I put a down payment on a Jayco Jay Flight SLX 264BHW. I close on it this Saturday. I feel like I'm totally over my head, so I appreciate any help I can get. I have a decent tow vehicle (new Ram 1500 V8) and just had a brake controller installed.

I'm approaching middle age and have two teenagers who are both very excited to go camping again. The last time we camped when my son was in Cub Scouts many years ago and that was tent camping (my aching back). My DW is more of the 5-star-hotel type and will probably not participate, although she is indulging me and not complaining that I'm spending our extra income on RV toys.

I'm already perusing the forum and look forward to benefitting from the wisdom of all of you experts.

Cheers,
HW

We're also new 264 owners. Be sure you get the weight distribution hitch, too.

Congratulations on the new TT, and welcome to The Forum. When the kids return from your first camping trip with stories about how great it was, I'll bet your DW will want to come along on trip #2!

Happy camping!

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new Jayco! I agree with Brownie, in no time at all, after hearing fun stories and seeing photos, your wife will want to come along.
Happy camping!

Thumbs up

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. I have a lot to learn and will probably spend a lot of time here.

Picked up the trailer yesterday. Only one problem: the range fan didn't work so they had to fix it while I waited around. Everything else went smoothly, except for the 45 minute tow to the RV storage. My truck was bouncing around a bit, even with a WD and stabilizing hitch.

I'm excited! We go on our first campout this Thursday!
