New to RV world

Hey all.
I had been looking for a used Toy Hauler for my son and I to spend weekends racing MX for months. The search started with one I liked on C-List that was sold 3 days before I got to it, but after the owner refused to take a deposit. I then spent months researching and looking at different models until I found what I wanted. The problem was that it was located 10 hours away at a dealer.
I worked with the dealer and requested a lot of information and pictures before deciding to make the journey. Buying something like this from pictures was nerve wracking to say the least.
Much to my satisfaction the unit was exactly as described and the few minor issues I found were rectified immediately. I ended up purchasing the trailer and bringing it back across Pa. from Ohio to NY.
I am now the owner of a 2008 KZ Sportsmen Sportster 26P. I have the garage pretty much set up for racing, but still need to mount a few things. The rest of the coach is in pretty much new condition. We used it once already and really enjoyed the weekend NOT having to leave the track and go to a motel.
That's my story. I will be searching and asking questions frequently.
Here's a picture of the "shake-down" trip.
