Be very careful, they are hard to drive with a big smile on your face.

Try to get a good walk through demonstration, adjust your mirrors and hit the road. Welcome to the club!

Yes, the PDI is critical! If you can, it is a good idea to find a RV Camp close to the dealer (some dealers have RV sites on their property - ask!) And spend a night or two in your new home going over everything. Any problems, report to the RV dealer and ask that they fix or repair before you leave.


Happy camping in your new berk!!

Driving tip if this is your first DP. Because the front wheels are behind you, don't start the turn until your hips reach the corner.

II know I said adjust your mirrors and hit the road. But really stay at the dealer or close by for a day or two while you check things out. Then have them fix anything you find before you leave the area.

Since you have a week, ask a lot of questions here before you pick it up.

Congratulations, welcome to the Berk family. Like the others have said, a good walk through with the dealer is important. If you can, video it for reference later.

Congratulations on your new Berkshire and welcome to the Forums!! Hope you have many fun, safe, trouble free and memorable trips with it! As others have said, try to stay in a campground that is close to the dealer and have them fix any issues before you leave.
