First rv ever

My wife and I just ordered a rockwood 8286ws. It won't be in for another four weeks, but were still very excited to get rving. We live in Nevada and bought out of Utah, so will have our first adventure soon.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new camper.

Hope you enjoy your Rockwood 5W as much as we've enjoyed ours.
