We are picking up our new 5th wheel tomorrow morning and are experiencing some "first time jitters". The questions that are now racing through our minds are: how much are we going to use this thing? What are the essentials that you need to take with? What is the average weight of all these extras? What is the best approach; a couple of short weekend trips to get the hang of things, or just go for it and take a long extended trip to "where ever the road takes us?" How long of a shower can you take with a 6 gallon water heater...? We would appreciate any advice for the maiden voyage.
