New to the forum

Hello all: My wife and I just bought our first fifth wheel A 2012 Forest River Flagstaff Classic. We have owned several pop-ups and several travel trailers and now we are going to try the fifth wheel. The first thing I do when I get a new camper is go out on the internet and find a forum with other user of the same product because I have found out that when I need advice or Tech help with a problem the forums are the place to go. I mean you guys out there have lived with your campers you know what works and what does not!! Not owning a fifth wheel before I am sure you will be seeing me post a lot of questions. And if there is any advice I can offer I will defiantly chime in. All that being said I look forward to getting to know all of you at least in the cyber world and who knows may run across a member at a camp ground from time to time.

Be safe and GOD Bless

Welcome to the forums and congrats on your new fifth wheel! I don't have a fifth wheel but I can see that they usually offer lots of space & storage. I'm sure you will be enjoying your new unit for a long time.

Happy Camping!

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

welcome to the forum. From our experience, you will see a big difference in towing the 5er. IMO
