If I had any advice it would be to stay close to the dealership for a day or two. There is bound to be a thing or two that might need fixed and you will have questions no matter how good the walk through was. Also, get a copy of "The Newbies Guide to Airstreaming". Wish we had it when we got ours. It is available through Airstream Life and I understand it is available on Kindle.

FREE in central Jersey is hard.

There is a dump station at the lower end of 295 in the rest area at mile marker 3.

Pine cone charges almost as much as a camp site for none customers.

Most truck stops have dump stations but will charge for the use.

Valley Forge Pa service area has one at a charge.

I use the curb side sewer clean out in my front yard. Free and never crowded.

Many camper bring a connection out the side of their house close to where they park

BEST IDEA..go to a rally! It was fantastic! Everyone was helpful and we got all kinds of information. So if any of those guys are reading...THANKS
We forgot a lot of stuff from the orientation, although it was great; but when we got to the rally we had 5 people helping us unhitch and suggestions all weekend, couldn't hope for a friendlier group.

Now a question if anyone is still with me...the mattress in the 22' Sport is a bit hard for us, what has anyone done to adapt it if anyone has the same issue?

Also, I know moisture can build up inside, is a cracked window & fan on low enough to keep humidity down?
For us, I looked for a memory foam topper. We got ours at a Super K in Key Largo (long way to go, I know). Also, for humidity, we go with Damp Rid, does the job.
