An indoor place to store it. Hail, corrosion, and leaks are your enemy!

Lots of good suggestions but don’t forget a trailer tongue coupler lock. A simple one like this one works. https://www.amazon.com/Camper-Traile...e+coupler+lock
I like the locking type. https://www.amazon.com/Trimax-SXTC2-...e+coupler+lock

It may be on someones great list but I missed it. I saw fire ext. But a good first aid kit that contains basic items like a tool to remove ticks. Bug repellent and all Rx meds you may be taking. A coupler lock was mentioned, but purchase the best one money can buy. Insurance is nice the the best lock is a great deterrent to theft. enjoy your investment to the fullest!

Also when it comes to hitch lock security go to You Tube and watch a video on Proven Industries Coupler Lock. If you are going to invest in one of the best campers, do not skimp on the lock so it will still be at the campground when you return from a day trip.

Also an electronic tracking device is not a bad idea either. Bill

Any suggestions on accommodations near JC?

Thanks for sharing the photos and story! We’re planning to visit the end of March - have the VIN of our new GT. Do you have any recommendations on where to stay in the area? Find any restaurants you liked?

The Globetrotter Bistro is quite good, even if you just order the cheese and a glass of wine. Pat

No restaurant recommendations, as I think there's only the one in JC. There were no hotels in town so we stayed at the Hampton Inn in Sidney, just south of JC along the interstate. Also a Holiday Inn Express there.

We'll be going back in September for some repairs, so may be back in Sidney if we can't camp at the factory.

As mentioned there is a Hampton Inn in Sidney which is about 20 minutes from JC. If you plan to stay there contact AS and they will give you a discount code.

Regrading restaurants, The Inn Between, which is about 7 miles from JC, has really good fried chicken. Worth the drive.

When I went down for a factory tour to see our AS being built, I stayed in Wapakoneta OH, the home town of Neil Armstrong, north of JC off I-75. If you have time you could visit the Armstrong Air and Space Museum. The Holiday Inn Express is fine.

When I crossed the border from Canada I was asked where I was going. I tried to pronounce the name - Wapakoneta, Ohio. The border agent replied with a smile "That sounds like a place in Ohio, welcome to the USA."
