We are not new to RVing, we have a pop up for a few years before the Grey Wolf. This is our first time with an RV so big, and honestly, I am feeling kind of over whelmed and I hope we can remember everything we need to do the first time we use it!
Anyway, I just wanted to say HI! I hope to meet others in our area as well as meet people while we are traveling!

We homeschool also, so we are hoping we can travel alot!
Cheers!
Welcome, Camp out a few nights at home, in the driveway or the backyard... Just a thought. I think it will help you get acquainted with the new coach. Make a list of things you need and questions you need to ask. lots of experience here on the forum.

That's not too far from us at all! We're FROG members too.

I'd love to do that, except there's no room for it at our house at all, we live in a neighborhood of houses that are super close together and Iowa City regulations won't allow us to park it on the street. Right now it's at a farm in Lone Tree in a shed for the winter.

That's sort of how it's been for us as well. We started with a tiny little popup that had no room at all (couldn't even set up the table if you wanted to get on the beds), then we bought a much larger Jayco pop-up 2 summers ago, and when we bought the Chevy Tahoe we knew we could pull something much bigger. Since hubby's a trucker, we sometimes can only camp one night locally, so we knew we wanted something much easier to set up.

Thanks for the welcome. I am really enjoying the forum so far.
