Greetings from Texas

Hi all. My husband and I just bought our first rv, a 5th wheel, Sandpiper 300 FB. It's a 2011 model but I don't think the previous owners took it out more than 4 times. We have two bedrooms, each with a queen size bed and a sitting area in the middle that also has a queen bed. We are so excited and can't wait to get out. Mostly we like fishing at the coast, but I hope we can start seeing more of the USA.

Thanks Turbs, that is what I am hoping for. We have no idea on how everything works when it comes to hooking and unhooking everything. It was raining the day we picked it up and the go over with the seller was quick. I think operating the slides will be easy enough along with the inside kitchen appliances. It's the whole gray/black water sewage part that has me worried. We want to take it out on a test this week. I have all the books that came with it. This is going to be fun and something I bet we will remember.

Congratulations on your Sandpiper and welcome to the forum. Lots of good campgrounds not far from you, Kerrville, San Marcos, Texas Hill Country. One of the best ways to learn is to read the forums, you can find the answer to almost any question you may have; and if not just post it and you will get a reply very soon.

Welcome! We're just up the road a bit on the Eastex Freeway. Glad to have you aboard. Don't forget all of East Texas as well. We started out in the Hill Country when we lived in San Antonio, and have discovered many new old haunts in the Eastern country of Texas. Heck, you can find just about anything in Texas. Let us know if you have any questions.

Just a suggestion but you may wanto driveway or backyard camp the first time to familiarize your self before your miles and miles away from home.
We suggest that to many people and truly helps!

Welcome fellow Texan. Reading the booklets is a good idea if you have never owned an RV before. Also, as you are learning how to set up the trailer and closing up for the return home you BOTH learn how to do things and check each other.... especially at first. Sometimes in our rush to get to the campground or to pack up and get home on Sunday night we tend to overlook some minor details like putting down the antena or folding the step handle in. We also are looking forward to filling in the map of the U.S. with places we have camped. Four states down and 45 to go. Yes I know there are 50 states but pontoons wasn't an option on the 5'er so I guess Hawaii is out.
