Howdy from Texas!

Hello yall! Brand new first time RVer here - hubby and I just purchased the 2017 FR3 32ds - Kind of a long story how we ended up settling for this model but in the end I think it fits our need and seems to be a good entry level coach and one I dont feel too intimidated to get behind the wheel of. Likely in a couple of years we will upgrade to a full size diesel pusher (its what he really wants! but think we need to see what we really NEED and like before jumping that far in financially) We have 4 kids ranging from 21 down to 7 and this will primarily be used to take the boys to the track - our 14 year old is currently rebuilding a miata he bought and converting to a spec racer. The husband races as well. So with this they can convince the rest of us to tag along in this south Texas heat!!! We will likely have a million questions so thought id join up here! We just signed on the coach yesterday and will pick up in a few days. The dealer here seems pretty nice and I think we got a fair deal. After looking at so many coaches in a broad price range we test drove a Georgetown XL(he didnt like the handling here in our wind) and also a Mirada(it drove better but I was underwhelmed at interior quality and seats were SLICK) we saw the FR3 sitting on the lot and had never seen one so looked at it and test drove on a whim and were very pleased with it! Sure its lacking a lot of the bells and whistles and the "high end" look the 369 had but it seems well laid out and can sleep a lot of people. Hubby loved how it drove and handled so we went for it! Id love to hear anyones experiences with theirs of similar model
