Purchasing from a Non-Airstream Dealer

Good Morning,
We are in the process of purchasing our dream trailer. A 2019 33 Classic FBT from a dealer in Ft. Worth who took it in on trade. Itís a 1300 mile drive to our home in Naples. Does anyone have any tips for us? We wonít be getting the walk AS walk thru since not an AS dealer. First time towing with our 2020 GMC 2500 diesel. Thanks much!
Super Excited!!

For peace of mind, a detailed briefing, and an experienced knowledge base, consider an overnight or two-day stay at the local Airstream only park - North Texas Airstream Community Park (Airstreams Only)
200 Walnut Hill Ave, Hillsboro, TX 76645. Bring some refreshments to trade for knowledge and wisdom.

Great response! Stop on your way TO PICK UP your coach. And stop again on the way home to show it off!

Certainly understand your excitement. I remember when we got our first AS. It's great to have you as member of the "club"!

What hitch will you be using? I would suggest spending some time making sure it is set up correctly. Getting this done will be worth the time and effort.
