Another excited land cruiser- soon

Hello All. First post! Lurkers since we, Dan and Kathy from Titusville, FL put in our order to ETI in November. Our 19 foot trailer is due June 26 and will be pulled by a Toyota 4Runner 2014. The build sheet is finalized thanks to so many of you being willing to share thought process before and realities of ownership. In our planning "It's Friday" pictures have been really helpful since we have never seen an Escape trailer inside yet. The excitement and enthusiasm for your brand new or "modified" RV on the forum is soo very contagious.
We live aboard our sailboat, Sea Star, so we do understand "systems" off the grid, but we are Newbies to trailering a RV, not so good with tech such as posting pictures, and hope we can remember all the steps to make trailer "stuff" work after orientation!
Could someone tell me where forum usage hints and explanations to use tags or insert photos are found?

Welcome, seastar! No doubt you will love your 19'. There is a lot to learn about rving but nothing you need to know that is difficult. Quite a few have bought sight unseen and are very happy with their Escapes.

RBryan,
Thank you. The links were just what I couldn't find! And here I thought we had read every word on the forum.

Yes, Cathy
Dan and I also feel we will love the new trailer. We found and visited a Casita in Florida before Dan found reference to and explored Escape. We feel just like RBryan has so famously named their trailer, "Past Tents." Thanks for your welcome. Sounds like we have a few things in common. Hope to see you out there.

Welcome Kathy,
You maybe our first boat home owner with an Escape. I guess it is better than putting your boat on a trailer and hauling it around?? Congrats and you will see many similarities between both units.
