Total n00b here

Well, we finally pulled the trigger and did it. 2015 Flying Cloud 30' bunk. I'm keen to not screw up. I've got a pretty good tow vehicle - I hope. F250 super duty.

We are getting our AS set up with 300 W solar, super duper batteries, and awnings all around. Considering some wind power, too.

Well, here is to hoping I can do this!

Congratulations. I think you have a great combination, as I'm quite partial to silver trailers and F250's!

WOW! CONGRATULATIONS!!! You are now one of the big guys. You are going to have so much fun with that rig.

It won't take long to get the hang of it. There's all kinds of free helpful advice here if you need it.

BTW, some pics would be nice for the rest of us to drool over. If you have time, of course.

Hey, we are all n00bs at one time or another...

You have PLENTY of truck....not a 'n00b' move there..

Make sure your AS is properly 'set up' to tow... Many dealers do a sufficient job.. some don't.. some do very well. But, it's your AS... make sure it is right.

Learn all the details... see if you can camp nearby for a 'shakedown'... etc.. There is a TON to learn.. I learn something new every day about our AS... and AS in general... and RV life... Lots of folks sharing their experiences here.. specific to the AS... so, you will get an experience from the folks here which will vary from time to time from what you may have seen in the fancy brochures... but, nothing to be a-fearin....

Welcome aboard! oh, BTW.... pics, man, pics!!!
Peace and Blessings..
