Hello...just joined Forest River Forum

My husband and I just got our Forest River RV last year. We are both new to RV camping and are slowly learning about it. In this photo, we went to Pine Crest RV Park in Slidell, La a couple weeks ago. We had a nice stay for a few days. It is only about a 3 1/2 hour drive from our home, so we haven't gone too far yet. Last year we went to a nice RV park (DeSota State Park) near Fort Payne, Al. We learned how slow the RV can go uphill and towing my car! WOW!

Welcome to the Forum. I am not new to camping, but like you, I'm new to this site. A fellow in my camping club, a Rockwood Mini Lite owner like myself, turned me onto this site. I don't know whether to 'thank' him or 'slap' him, cause I'm hooked. I can't go 1 day without signing on.

I have learned so much by reading other people's comments, and especially love the fact that I can post my own problems or questions, and so many people help you out with their info and opinions.

You have a beautiful Rig...Enjoy

Hi! Thanks for the welcome!! I see you have a 12 year old chihuahua...we have a 12 year old Collie/Husky...we took him the first time out in the RV and he would bark if I stepped out just for a bit...so now we have to leave him at our Vet's kennel... I was hoping to be able to take him with us...not sure what else to do about that.

Pamela, do you park your RV in your driveway or yard? If you do, I would spend time with him inside the RV, maybe an over-nighter, and then leave him inside while you are sitting outside, near the door, where he could see you.

Good idea. What a shame to have to leave him behind during a camping trip. Most dogs love camping as much as we do. I hope it works out. We started camping specifically because we couldn't take our dog on cruises and (not conveniently) on airliners.

Our new dog would get sick on every camping trip to the point that we started referring to our truck as The Vomit Comet. After a few trips, she got used to the ride and sleeps all the way to the campground.

We have our RV parked in our driveway (built with a bump out space for it). That is a good idea...He doesn't bark when we leave him in the house to go to work or shopping or.....sometimes he will if he can see us through the window doing stuff outside.

Our dog, Zeus, was such a trooper during the ride...he would sit on the seat at the table and look out the window like he was a regular human!!! He just didn't do well if we left...I would love to break him of the barking when we leave...I'm going to try the above suggestion!!

Hey Wiscampsin! Great looking Sabre. It looks like the floor plan matches the plan of our new 2013 Sanibel 3400. We bought it right before we deployed to Afghanistan and pu it in storage. We don't even have a tow vehicle yet. Can I ask what you tow your Sabre with? I think we need at least a one ton but not sure if we need a SRW or DRW. Can't wait to get home to start our RV lifestyle. It also looks like you are a full timer? We are considering living in ours for about six months when we get back until we move to our next duty station. Any pros and cons of full time living?
