Welcome and congrats!!!

Make sure you get a good wdh (weight distribution hitch), preferably one with integrated sway control. The Reese Dual Cam, Reese SC, and the Equal-I-Zer 4 way system are all very good for the price. Even though the dealer will set up the wdh, it is for an empty trailer. So once the tt is loaded up for a trip you may need to readjust the wdh before your first trip. Follow my signature links for a ton of wdh info if needed.

Enjoy the new rig!!!

Awesome! Thank you!
They were offering either a free hitch, sway, saddlebag, and brake controller hookup for free, or a 4000w Champion generator.
I opted for the free hitch hookup (Camping World)

I will soon. We completed the paperwork and are returning this weekend to have the hitch hooked up and to take delivery.
Surprisingly I was able to talk them down from 29,000 to 25,000 out the door. I was thoroughly surprised!

GregJames Camping is so much fun and the people that you meet are the best. You are going to enjoy your camping adventure. There are a lot of nice camping places just north of you. I would suggest that you get a break controller if you haven't already gotten one it can keep you and your vehicle from having an accident.

They will be installing that this weekend when we pick it up.

I live minutes from Lake Lanier, so it'll be simple to get a lake campsite and tie the boats up this summer! Can't wait. I'll even be able to stay longer and head to work from the site.
