Premier 19 FBR New and Excited!

We are upgrading to a larger trailer so that we may go on longer and further trips. 2 adults, 2 dogs. Anyone have any tips for us? We are so looking forward to our first shake down! Planning to go to the Oregon Coast in March and April and then further afield later in the year.
Hello everyone!

Welcome to the forum. A short shakedown run is the way to go. Make sure you operate everything and make notes or videos of anything that doesn't work properly to show your dealer.

Welcome aboard!
Paul is right: a shakedown cruise is a good idea.
How much larger are you going?
Which "The long, Long Trailer" first!

Actually two or three shortish trips might be in order before you set out on an epic quest. Some RVs seem to be fine right off the lot and some take a few trips to get the “new bugs” taken care of. Just remember to have fun as you travel.
