Congratulations Nick. You'll love your new home.
I assume you are having the factory install the hitch, it's part of the deal, & they are very precise.
Backing is a challenge, but take your time & you'll be fine. Many campground hosts are excellent at directing you into a space. Apparently their directions are much clearer than mine, or so I've been told. Like anything, practice makes perfect, it gets easier each time.

Your trailer will work better than a motel, even if you don't use the water system or plug into shore power. You have a nice new bed, lights that run off the battery, and a furnace to keep you warm enough. Anyway, when traveling in a hurry, it's faster to pull into a Walmart parking lot and go to bed than it is to search up a motel!

I suspect Scamp would have things like a water pressure limiter, a water hose, a sewer hose, and an electric adapter either included or at least available for sale.

Cabela's Zero G Padded Chaise Lounger

Found it at Cabela's. I might just have to get it once I arrive in Oregon (no sales tax).

I'll miss my leather recliner for sure.
I have one about the same, from Bass Pro. It fits nicely in the aisle, so I sometimes even use it in the trailer. But since buying mine I've noticed that Walmart has this type of recliner too, for about $45, in their yard/garden section. Best price I've seen anywhere.

I'm on my 4th (or is it the 5th?) good coffee mug.
I keep backing up over my backup one.

Nike I always have a list of items to purchase when I hit Oregon for the same reason. Keep in mind that Wally world has a trailer section where you can pick up the electrical adapters etc.... Also if you are thinking of using your computer outside make sure you get an outside electrical plug put on the trailer if it doesnt already have one.

As long as your partner isn't holding the mug at the time...

Hopefully you'll have someone more experienced that I was,, Or get plans and start now.
Scamp has a new hitch now that they use (though they'll still install the old if you wish). It's a commercial product and they'll be installing for me. Did have a good suggestion from someone though for down the road. Just can't remember who gave it to me or what it was. Hmmm. Do I need to be driving and pulling a camper. You bet. Time for a break from the rat race.

Hoho. Thanks. I'll get to test my backing skills the first night as I park it to CAMP. No motel for me. Hehe...

Yep I'd thought about Walmart as well. Since I am in a bit of a hurry (you know grand daughters) that might be my best bet for the two nights I'd need it. (Hopefully not more).

I also suspect Scamp will have them available but just to make sure I used my old standby Amazon.com and ordered the bare essentials in that line. Will be here on Wednesday.

That's inexpensive. I'll need to check out Walmart when I go to stock on traveling supplies this weekend. Thanks for the heads up.

Oh yeah. Wally world gets a lot of my business and I'm sure I'll be hitting that section when I go.

One of my first questions was an outside outlet. There was, but there will be. As I told them it should be standard.
