New RV Owner this Coming October!

Just agreed to buy a 2016 Forest River FR3 32DS. It's the wife and mine first RV and we are extremely excited (and nervous) about it! We're buying it through Total RV in Elkhart, Indiana and will be flying out there next month to drive it back to Maryland.

As we are extremely new to the RV world any suggestions on must haves for the RV are more than welcomed!

You will love it!!!

Great shakedown trip for a first ride! Communicate well with that dealer to have it prepped and somewhat stocked maybe for the trip to Maryland?

My hubby and I flew to Texas and drove ours back to North Carolina. We did have to make a stop by Walmart to pick up the essentials which I hadn't planned for since I had everything sitting in my garage from our previous camper. Enjoy your trip home!
