New Sunset Trail & new to camping

We just go our new 2017 Sunset Trail 289QB. This is our first camper, it's a huge upgrade from our tent! This looks like a great forum, I've already learned a ton!

I'll say that's a huge upgrade from a tent!!! Nice rig.
Welcome aboard.

One thing I noticed in the pic----you have a lot of what looks like light duty extension cords run out there. You want to be careful how much you try to run on them.

Check all your roof seals and grab a tube of Proflex clear and beef up the sealant on all windows....trust me I know from experience.

My 289QB has given plenty of weekend projects over the last several months.

Best wishes and welcome to the forum

Thanks for the welcome. Yes the 16 Escalade is our tow vehicle, it's done great so far. The two together make a good looking rig, just need to find some towing mirror extensions...
