New Owner

I bought a 19' flying cloud today and am driving quite a distance to pick it up tomorrow. I've never owned an airstream or even towed a trailer before. Any advise or tips you can offer on picking up my new purchase at the dealer and/or towing her home?

Theres a long list of things but mostly just take it easy and get a feel for it. Pay attention to the walk through and enjoy. 19' will be easy with your Yukon.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

Is your tow vehicle all set up with a trailer brake controller? If not you are going to need one.

That article was awesome. Thank you all so much. Now I have to get my trailer back to a dealer because I found about a half a dozen issues that need repair under the warranty. Thanks everybody.
