OK - A Newbie Here

Hello All - Getting away from the pop-ups and all the hassle. Going to pick up a 1996 Excella in Searcy AR, weather permitting on Saturday. Any advice would be appreciated. BR

BR, Welcome to the Forum. You've come to the right place to gain

knowledge. I would look into towing configuration, trailer setup, type of tow

vehicle. The Forum is a great place to start. good luck on your Airstream.

Regards, Keith

Smile 1996 Exel

There a lot of good questions from the forum. The biggest is what are you using for a tow vehicle? I hope it is a least a 3/4 ton pickup. Does it have a brake controler? Is your trailer plug compatible with the AS trailer/ Does the trailer come with a hich and weght distribution bars?
Regards Russell from Tucson az.
