New RVers from Texas

We just purchased a 2017 Rockwood 2109s. We'll be picking it up next weekend. We rented a small TT last year, and had such a good time that we decided we would like to have our own. Our tow vehicle is a 2016 Ram 1500 Ecodiesel.

We're planning on heading north at the beginning of August. Glacier if we can, or somewhere between here and there if we find place we like. Our vacations can be a little spontaneous at times.

I hope we meet some of you on the road.

Congratulations on your new purchase.

Make sure to do a couple of local RV shake down camping weekends before taking off on a long distance journey. Better to get any "needs" addressed by your local service center than be on the road when that "oh no" moments arise....LOL

Congrats on your new TT.

We rented before purchasing our first TT. Learned what we wanted before making the big purchase.

We just traded in a 2014 2104S (slightly different floor plan). Loved it for the 2.5 years we owned it, just needed a little more room since we started tending to carry more people with us. You'll enjoy it.

I went outside to just check on an ant problem we were having at the CG and watch the steady stream of water from the A/C had to towel off when I went back inside....


Ol' desert boy is not used to that....
