Welcome also from Texas! Take your time, get familiar with everything before the big trip and you'll be fine. You may even want to consider an overnight stay in Camp Driveway.

Welcome to the family and congrats on the new TT! Ask away, you'll find the collective experience and knowledge will be at your fingertips. There are no bad or stupid questions here. I've tried.

Welcome from another Texan, we have the same unit and are really happy with it. What are you planning on using to tow it with.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather didĖin his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum.

Do not hesitate to ask questions... both here and at your PDI (pre delivery inspection).

Please let us know a bit about your prior RV and camping experience. Knowing that will be a help in getting you the answers you want.

Welcome from yet another Texan!

I also suggest that you guys camp on the driveway using only the things (bathroom, electricity, water, etc) that you will use at the campground. It's always good to do a test run or two before you actually hit the road with a new rig.
