That's quite a story and all too familiar. We started with a pop-up with three kids and a crazy lovable Labrador Retriever and eventually moved to a hybrid than a couple trailers. There is nothing like waking up in a real bedroom making a cup a coffee while its raining outside. You are in for some good times, and feel free to share your experiences here. Make sure to update your profile and signature with your trailer and tow vehicle when you get some time. We really don't want or need anymore personal information to share, but having your stuff listed really helps other forum members down the road. I've been pinged a half dozen times by people looking for the same trailer we have as well as questions about towing, etc.
I've learned a ton from the members on the forum and avoided some costly mistakes along the way too. Best advice is to search the forum when you have questions and if you don't find your answer, start a thread.
BTW..I see your from NY..we've been all over and one of the nicest spots we've stayed is in Lake George RV park. If you have not, be sure to add that to your list.
