First RV

Hello from Duvall, WA (outside Seattle in Cascade foothills).

Just purchased a 2017 Vibe 268RKS and eagerly await delivery. No RV experience beyond one weekend with Cruise America years ago, but have spent a lifetime sailing & cruising and working on my boats, so some of the aspects of RV maintenance are reasonably familiar (off grid power, for example). My wife and I looked at countless TTs and 5th wheels before settling on the Vibe--I'm reasonably confident we won't regret it. This forum has been very helpful getting us to our decision and identifying things to watch out for as well as mods to go on the punch list. I look forward to many happy trips in our new camper!

Johnbro

Welcome to the forum and to the world of RVing. Congrats on your up coming purchase of a Vibe. Make sure to do a good PDI and take lots of notes. Consider taking out the additional one year warranty that FR furnishes and you will have to ask the sales person for it as they will not volunteer the info. Its cheap and will give you two full years of coverage as usually anything going to happen will be in the first 2 years. Enjoy and Later RJD

Your sailing experience will serve you well, from maintenance to meal planning and prep to small space organization. We sailed previously too.
