Good stuff, Ron.
Looks like tons of fun.

Edit: I'm continually amazed at the places GoPro's are attached, and that they stay in place.

Batteries and chargers don't have to drive you crazy because this is stuff you can easily change after you have lived with the trailer for a while and know what you need. (Easier than, for example - adding the 2 way water heater or a bathroom window.)

Not kidding anyone, Ron. Your picture obviously taken in Australia.

That really is the bottom line. Don't fret about too much to start with, use the trailer and see what works for you and what you might decide to change.

Myron, nope just visible over or is that under my head are the Southern Alps of New Zealand. And while the little plane did manage a circumnavigation of the South Island the only way it would get to Australia would be by boat.

Don, it is amazing what you can do with a GoPro. It's the best camera I've ever had because I can get photos I'd never otherwise get.

Probably shouldn't have, but I can get away with it a little easier since I am a girl! Well, I was half century ago...

Linda,
When I had my 19' Escape delivered it was a dual delivery with an owner from North Carolina, who was also a "newbie". He drove up from North Carolina and took delivery here in York, Pa. We then took off to a KOA in Gettysburg where I was able to demonstrate how to unhook, extend the awning, operate the pump and other appliances. He was appreciative of the help.
Something you may want to consider if another member close to you could help, if not, I am always available.
