Hello, new to rv'ing

My family and are are new to rv'ing, (Myself, wife and 19 month old boy) I am planning to purchase a 371rebh we just love this floor plan and model! We have looked over the past 4 months at different makes and models and lay outs. Hopefully we made the right choice with FR sandpiper!

We are going to be staying in it about 9 months to the full year since I do so much traveling for work. Any opinions would be greatly appreciative and advice to help us along the way.

Checked out your rolling home on Google. Very nice! Looks like there should be plenty of room for your family. This forum is great; I've found a lot of helpful hints here. Just take it slow; you're not towing a pop-up!

Welcome! We're using ours for a second home as my work requires me to be in multiple locations. Cheaper than renting, way cheaper than buying another home. With retirement only 4 1/2 years out, our 282RK is ideal. And, afterwards, you still have the trailer!

Best of success and fun with your 371rebh!

Just make sure you've got an adequate tow vehicle. (I'll bet the salesman told you, "Oh, a 1/2 ton pick up can tow it!! )
