Do a good PDI (pre delivery Inspection) and get a good weight distribution hitch with sway control

What Jason said. Go over every system and watch it work while it is at the dealer. Don't take delivery until you are satisfied with everything and all issues are either repaired or you have something saying it will be.

The other piece of advice I have is to get a list of things you need to get started. Water hoses (fresh water and sewer rinse), water pressure reducer, sewer hose and fittings, extension cords, extra fuses, a tool kit, extra bulbs, an outdoor rug, chairs, leveling blocks or boards, wheel chocks (X-Chocks work great), etc. I'm pretty sure there is a list somewhere on this site if you search of things you need.

The best thing for a beginner to do (assuming you are a beginner) is to swallow your pride and don't be afraid to ask questions of other campers in the campgrounds. RVers are a friendly lot and always willing to help. I've learned lots of tricks over the years from fellow RVers.

Welcome, congrats, and good luck!

Got one and love it.

Like they said, do a good inspection.

I thought that I did a good inspection, but a week after I got it home, I found that it had 3 15" wheels and 1 14" wheel. CW made it right, very quickly.

Have used it for about 40 nights since then and haven't found any other problems.
