New Oasis owner in West Virginia

Hello everyone! Picking up my brand spanking new 2016 Shasta Oasis 18BH tomorrow.

Traded in a 14 ft Dutchmen that we had for 4 years. A tree jumped in front of the TT on the way home from our 4th of July trip. Had to make a decision on whether to:

1. Get out of RVing all together
2. Fix the one we had and modify to be more comfortable. (We were sleeping on the dinette made into a bed, for instance, and wanted to make a permanent bed in that space.)
3. Or, just go ahead and trade in and upgrade.

Decided on the latter and so we are gaining a four ft longer trailer, two bunks, a dinette that we can really use as a dinette, and a queen bed. Feeling very blessed and can't wait to go camping.

I have already picked up a lot of ideas for mods here, and hope to meet many of you.
