Inline water filter (they have them there at the Escape store) an adapter to be able to plug into 110 (If you do not have a 30W outlet at home), chucks, a good board or wood block to put under your jack, trailer mirrors for your tug, an assortment of large and small bungee cords (one very small one to help hold the propane cover in place, I have had to stop at least 3 times to pick it up along the highway)

New Rig

Thatís a nice looking combination. Home: safe and reasonably sound. I guess that answers the question of whether or not you were ready. You were and now the adventures begin.
Congratulations

My first LOL for the day. Thanks for that...
I've known people who buy a new vehicle when the last one needs new tires. cray-cray.

then there was the father of one of my brother's friends, all through the 60s to mid 70s, he bought a new Cadillac EVERY year. circa mid 70s he bought the brand new Mercedes 300D, and drove that car until he died in the '90s.

I have the following!



1) Honda Pilot 4WD (4500lb Tow Capacity). Has 7 pin connector and 2" Receiver
2) Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller
3) E3 Fastway Hitch (Provided by Escape at time of pick up)

4) 3 Day Vehicle Permit
5) Added trailer to insurance.
6) Torque wrench and 13/16" deep socket
7) Location and time for deliver
8) A nearby hotel room for the night before delivery.


Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Tire air gauge would be good. Our trailer's tires were significantly over-inflated, which wouldn't be unusual with such variable weather this time of year.

A multi-tester is always good to have.
