Delivery is in 6 weeks, which is fine given the winter we're having and the fact I have time to see what things I needs to consider before our first time out. This is where the fear sets in......
After scanning through many of the forums, is there anyone out there who can calm my nerves which have me thinking that this thing I bought is going to fall apart a mile after leaving the dealership (which, if I read right, will disavow any knowledge of my purchase 5 minutes after the sale is complete), leak if I am not constantly on the roof catching raindrops, bounce like a carnival ride every time a take a breath, and basically fall apart before I open my first beer? After reading many of the forums, I am now thinking this is the best worst decision of our lives!
All will be OK, won't it?!
I had to go back n try to see what exactly you are scared of. Lol !
We recently bought a new TH, I worked on things I wanted like ,tv in master, more tool storage ,little things. Then we set off across the country, OH to WY n back. Yes we had small problems with the frig, and... Ah.... That's about all,as far as the camper. The truck was another story.
It was a three wk adventure of a lifetime be flexible, adapt ,overcome.
I too was scared , mostly about putting all my eggs in the same basket,and hauling them that far.
We met a lot of great people,most everywhere .
It is worth every penny!!
