Pay attention to your turns, the FW will track inside of your truck's turn. When backing it up into a spot, take your time, get out and look (GOAL). If people want to watch, let them, you protect your investment. Never get complacent about anything, driving/parking/setting up/breaking camp.

Congrats and have fun with your new home.

Look up! You are going to be much taller than before. Beware those "leafy" branches. Some aren't all that soft. Other than that, there's not much that's all that different.

Welcome to the group from Olando Thousand Trails Park, for now. Enjoy your time in the rig, making memories is a great time. Any questions just ask away, use the 5th wheel section and you should get more responses.
