New to camping - 26BHW

We are new to camping but have a young daughter and wanted to start something as a family together. After giving it some thought we decided to buy a travel trailer so we could always go out together and bring a piece of home with us.

We looked and looked for a while at new and used and ended up getting a 2015 Jay Flight SLX 26BHW. We have not picked it up yet, plan is to get it in two weeks because I'm out of town on business and before I left there was snow all over the place and I didn't want to get it then. We are definitely excited.

Our tow vehicle is a 2010 Ford F-150 with the tow package and factory brake controller. I also ordered the Blue Ox WDH with sway control.

I've been lurking around for a few weeks and figured I'd go ahead and say hey.

Edit: 264BHW

Welcome. Our absolute best camping memories were around our son growing-up tent-trailering! Now that we have our new TT, guess who inherited the pop-up!

Welcome to the forum. Though I have camped all my life and gone from tent rigs to TT to 5th wheel, to cabover, to tent, and not back to TT; I figure I have a lot of experience and knowledge, but I definitely do not know it all, and I am always willing to learn more. There are some great ideas, tips and tricks to be learned here. No matter how silly you think a question might sound, check in here and search. I am sure you will find an answer. As well, please post anything you feel might help others. Even old timers like me can learn something from a first timer.
We are just a humble drinking couple with a hunting and camping problem.
