Welcome and congrats on the new rig!!!!
As you may have read elsewhere here, make sure you get a good wdh (weight distribution hitch), possibly one with integrated sway control (not sure what trailer you are buying). The Reese Dual Cam, Reese SC, and the Equal-I-Zer 4 way system are all very good. If you choose the Dual Cam, make sure the dealer knows how to properly install the cam brackets. The SC and the 4 way system are very similar in how they work. The Reese does offer a little more fine tuning of the hitch head for the wdh adjustment.
If needed, follow my signature links for a ton of wdh info!!! Also plan on readjusting the wdh once you load the trailer up for a trip. The dealer is only setting the hitch up for an empty trailer. Also, do not let the dealer give you wd bars based on the "dry hitch/tongue weight". The "dry tw" does not include the weight of the propane tanks or a battery on the tongue. Those alone can add ~120# for 2-20# tanks and a battery, or ~160# for 2-30# tanks and a battery. As an example, our "dry tw" of 920# is about 1400# loaded, ready for a trip.
Don't hesitate to ask any questions!!! Some days may be a little slower to get an answer, but one of us will be along soon enough to try to help.
If allowed, video tape the walk through when they show you how to use everything in the trailer. And try to break it into smaller sections so you don't have to watch the whole thing to remember what is at the end of the walk through! Lol

If you make it back to Mackinaw City and if you like hot wings, the Keyhole Bar and Grill has the best wings IMHO. And awesome onion rings as well!!!
