If you can clarify, I welcome a different route.
Look again. You don' want to tow through Lakewood and up route 9 unless you are comfortable towing with lots of traffic lights and strange pedestrians.

Search Colonial Airstream on Google and follow the instruction out of their lot.

The southern section allows trailers.

I'm not sure how thorough Colonial AS is on their walk through. I have some suggestions.
Have them fill the water tank and water heater and test out the hot water heater operation. Listen to the water pump. If all faucets are off then listen to hear if the pump burps now and then indicating a water leak at a fixture. I'd run the shower faucet and direct the spray on the inside against the shower door frame flashing to verify the water doesn't leak to the hallway floor. Have them test the black water flush too. Have them turn on the fridge the day before pickup so you can put a thermometer in the there while you start the walk through. Bring a multimeter to test the battery voltage when connected to shore power. It should match the output from the charger. Have them turn on the AC/Heat Pump and verify air is coming out of all ducts uniformly. Ask them to weigh the hitch so you have an idea what the tongue weight is prior to hitching up. Have them verify the tire pressures. Open and close every window and vent. Bring a DVD and have them show you how to display to the TV and play the audio through the system. Also play off the air broadcast on the TV and have them direct the TV audio to the radio speakers.

Good luck and have a great time

Kelvin

Big day yesterday. Towed the new Flying cloud from Lakewood, NJ to Manheim PA. This was only the second time I ever towed a trailer. I made it home, parked it in the driveway in one try. Yeah right LOL!

Congrats. It was big day indeed.

How did your RAM handle the tow?

Glad you made it. NOW you know why New Jersey put the "FF" in traffic. If you handled it without a meltdown you can handle anything any other state can throw at you. If you traveled RT 78 westbound and went through the high speed EZ-pass lane be prepared to check your EZ-pass account in a few days and check the charges. If you went any other route you should be OK.
