New to the RV World

We recently purchased a Rockwood 8281ss fifth wheel. New truck the whole nine yards. We have been out twice and love the lifestyle and really enjoy our unit. We were boaters before so we knew a bit about getting ready for a trip. The quality of our unit has been good, we have a few warranty issues that will be addressed in about a week by our dealer. Value for the money in this unit is good and we recognize this is not a high end model, but we love it so far and enjoy the layout and functionality of the unit.

More importantly our grand kids love camping and want to go with us. That was the purpose and we are very happy.

Pay attention at the walk through and ask questions. Camp close to home or near the dealer the 1st time in case you have any problems. Enjoy and happy camping.
