We are brand new to the RV world, we've always been tent campers in the past. We just picked up our new Z-1 211RD this week and we are taking it out for a quick 1 night trip tonight. I'm both really excited and really nervous. I know things are going to go wrong, I just don't know what yet!

Something always is a challenge when camping, but don't sweat it.

Enjoy the trip and use common sense, it will all work out.

Congrats on the new camper and have fun !

Congrats on the new trailer and welcome to the site. Don't worry about the learning curve, just remember to bring your sense of humor with you andkeep a few extra cold beers in the fridge to offer those that help you and all will be fine. We definitely have made our share of mistakes (too numerous and some too humiliating to list) but we are still here a year later and our TT survived all of it. Enjoy and may your new trailer bring you many happy camping memories.

Don't worry about things going wrong. Think positive and it will all be good. Before you know it you will be an old pro.
Welcome aboard, and congrats on your new rig.

Welcome to the forum. When we were newbies we had bought a truck camper and took our first trip out with it only to find out that we forgot to fill the propane tanks. We looked at each other and burst out laughing. Thank goodness we cook over a fire. If you forget something or something does not work, make a list. On the top of that list mark down, "Laugh, it could be worse". Have fun.
