All good advice above. The only thing I would like to add is that water is your enemy. Keep on top of the service and maintenance, and IMO, a yearly leak test if you are parked outside with no shelter. A lot of damage can occur internally long before any visible signs are present.

Cekkk, thank you. All your ideas are great, picking up the TT tomorrow and probably will grab some of those items.

CHOCK the WHEELS before you unhook it from the TV! If you don't it could roll and really hurt someone. Now go use it like you stole it.

Check out the App " allstays" many of us use it and they have a video you can watch before you sign up.

Everyone here posted some great suggestions, the only things I would add is a minor repair tool kit, a note book and adult beverages.
TOOL KIT - for minor incidentals that occur while exploring the great outdoors.

NOTEBOOK - since this is your first you can start your diary first thing upon picking it up. We started ours with camping experiences in the front 1/2 and in the back anything we "wanted" or "needed" as well as encounters we faced.

ADULT BEVERAGES - for when your sitting around that campfire at night admiring your new camper and saying "what the hell did we get ourselves into" LOL.

PS This new found lifestyle is addicting and expensive at times

I'm quite happy with our PVC bed rails, vinyl gutter sewer hose support, and wood leveling thingee (not pictured, but it is basically three 2 x 6 boards of varying length screwed together to form a ramp that allows me to incrementally lift the trailer on one side as needed).
