Picking up our 5.0 next week... thank you!

I have been searching this forum, reading and learning for the last 2 years as we waited for our 5.0. We are newbies to the RV version of camping. Kim and I have been backpackers and car tenting our whole marriage.
I want to express our appreciation and would like to say thank you to all the members on this site that post their wisdom, opinions and helpful instructions and know-how. From newbie info on towing, setting up a tow vehicle, to extensive mod upgrades/ideas... members have graciously shared very valuable information. I found if I needed to know something... someone on this forum had shared enough information to help me. I went from not knowing enough to even know what to ask... to being confident that we are ready to at least pick up our trailer and get it home in one piece.
Its been a long wait... our excitement is very high. So weather cooperating, we will officially join the Escape community next Friday Nov 18. We look forward to meeting you, share a beer and thank you in person.

Escape Artist - That's a great combo! thanks for the welcome.
Eggscape - I have read many of your mods. I have plans to incorporate some. I really liked your removable outdoor table attached to the trailer. I really like your writing strategy... "The Short Story".... very convenient.
