New owner from Michigan.

We just picked up a 97 253rk. Our first 5th wheel. I still have to get a hitch installed , looking at a 15k reese pro. We are looking to make our first trip in 2 weeks, but I'm still reading everything I can get my hands on to learn how to use this thing. A lot of info to absorb. The boss and I are in our 50s and have been tent campers for years, looking forward to the conveinence this will bring. We have some g-kids that will be joining the fun before to long , that was a factor in making the nice up.
