    We didn't plan stops along the way ... Just downloaded the app called 'parkadvisor' and used that to find campgrounds along our route. We stayed at a Walmart parking lot one night. There were a few campers there besides us and it wasn't bad. Other than that we stayed in places with hookups but one of those nights we passed right by a walmart and wished we hadn't already called ahead and made reservations at a campground.

    Hope that helps. If you have questions, or specific info you're looking for, please feel free to ask.

    My main advice would be to TRY OUT EVERY SYSTEM. We were so worn out from the 2500 mile drive, plus the long day of explanations, moving things like dishes and linen from the TV to the trailer, paperwork and whatnot, that we basically went out to supper and then went to bed. ;-) It was only the next day, 500 miles down the road at our first stop that I realized that the shower leaked. ;-( Turns out it wasn't a huge deal, but I held myself partially responsible for missing it because I didn't even test it at the dealer. Also, GET CONTACT INFO for your seller. My dealer (and his guide who showed the trailer) had given me cell phone numbers so I was able to text about the shower right away and find a solution.

    Hi, Bill. I'm sorry I missed your message. Its probably too late now! Congratulations!

    Just in case it helps, here's my story:

    We stayed overnight at the dealer. I did try to prep myself as much as possible by doing some basic reading and video watching in advance. I also took 2 people with me who could also look and listen. I had heard about taking a video, but that wasn't very practical as my guide took a LONG time to explain everything and had a lot of side stories.

    The dealer provided me fresh hoses and things, but I still ended up spending a few dollars at the dealership's retail store. I tried to limit myself to things that would nto be available at Walmart, etc, or that I knew I would need on the trip.

    Sending more info in another message.

    Bill,
    I am currently out of country till May. I can send pics then.

    We have a FULL hard shell cover by Leer (100xl I believe was the model) the slide out is a CargoGlide CG1800HD. It has a 75% pull out range (100% is heavier and higher) so it works fine for my needs. Handles 1800lbs evenly distributed ( I have 3/4 ton) so perfect limit. Generator is 3000 Yamaha inverter and sits at the end of the bed so I can pull it out slightly to fuel easily.

    Hi There, VERY sorry as just now seeing this PM after the holidays. H-N-Y !

    Yes, GMC 2014 after the new refresh and engine design upgrades.
    As a 90% daily driver and needing to fit the garage. 3/4 to big.
    1500 Denali loaded 4x4 5.3L (without max tow) rated for 9800lbs towing
    (1488 door sticker Payload)
    Our AS is a 2005 25ft Intl CCD SS is 5300dry/6300 loaded up w 750 tongue.
    TW seems light compared to many similar AS versions so lucky i guess as we bought truck before we new all about the payload dent from tongue weight.

    After 3 years and enough trips up grades seems to do a great job. If full timing or
    bigger weight demands would probably do the newer 2017/18 GMC 3/4 with insane 944 torque (ours @ 360ish?). hope this helps. Dirk
