Brand newbie from Woodstock, IL

Hi all, new RV'er and first time owner of a Tracer FSB230. (As in just bought it.)
Excited and looking forward to many happy trails.
Been lurking for a few months and the forum friendliness and info was a consideration in making the decision of getting into an RV.
I will obviously have lots of questions, and I promise to read the manual and search the forum before asking, but bear with me as this is all totally new and I have little expertise with towing, and none with RV'ing.

Welcome to the FR Forums! Glad you decided to come on in and join us. Please do post any questions you may have. Most of us were newbies at one time so we understand how you may feel.

As for having "little expertise with towing, and none with RV'ing" ...well that's more than what I started with so you should be OK. The first time I towed anything was the day I brought home my TT.

There can be a learning curve to RVing but the great thing is that you decide what speed you will take the turn at. Be comfortable and remember that we have your back.


Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Welcome and don't hesitate to ask anything. I'm sure someone has the answer or they'll just make it up.
