Thanks everyone!!

Well, we put in an RV pad last spring. Only thing missing, the RV.. We've begun to remedy that. The middle of the month we ordered a new 3010 DS Sunseeker motorhome from RV Direct. Should be ready to pick up sometme
in March or so ..

Never owned a MH or TT or FT, so all this is really new to us. I've been googling and reading this and other Forums quite a bit. Still trying to get a handle on even just the acronyms (MH, FT, TT, GCWR, GVWR, UVW, FW, GW, BW ...) I really thought TV was television for a while, so I was pretty confused when reading some of the forum posts about tow vehicles.

So, I guess one of the next decisions, is whether we go to Orlando or Des-Moines to pick up our new toy... I know RV Direct has the option of New York as well, but since we are in Utah, I think that one is out.. The closest is Des-Moines, but really, between Florida and Des-Moines, would YOU really pick Des-Moines ? Work schedules and such may dictate that, but not my first choice ..

In any case, I still have lots of questions and lots to learn, so I am very grateful this forum exists and thanks in advance for putting up with any foolish newbie questions I might ask ..


Congratulations on the new MH. If its like most things we wait for it will be late and if that goes into April for delivery I would choose Des-Moines. We have vacationed in that area before we had a MH and I loved it Beautiful country. We plane to be in FL until mid March but it gets very warm after that. What ever you decide enjoy the trip and the new MH.
