We picked it up from the dealership this evening.

Have to adjust the hitch tomorrow (it's low on the nose as some might have noticed) but otherwise so far so good.

We're heading out for our first weekend tomorrow evening!

Nice looking rig. Good thing you mentioned that you know it is low. Hopefully that will save everyone some keystrokes telling you about it :)

Congratulations !!!!!! Adjusting the hitch up is a good thing. You will gain more clearence between the fiver and the truck bedrails.

Indeed, and I need it - I almost clipped the skirt of the trailer on my in-bed toolbox this evening while backing into our parking spot - there's a tight corner with a dip and it did some twisting. THankfully I noticed it and stopped, but whew, the thoughts of the mess that might have made.

I adjusted the fifth wheel to it's highest and it's still low on the nose, so now I've got to adjust the pinbox itself. Not looking forward to that.
