Newbie from Michigan

Hello all. I recently purchased my first rv. Its a 2014 grey wolf 25rr Toy Box.
Haven't had the chance to take it out yet but hopefully next weekend will be it.
My wife and daughter are very excited to go camping.
Any info or advice for a new rv owner would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Congrats! We made a swing through MI this summer. You certainly have a huge number of great places to camp. Try a night of driveway camping to get familiar with everything and use the forum for answers to questions. Just about everything you can think of probably gets discussed here.

We purchased our new 2014 Grey Wolf 25RR Toy Hauler two weeks ago. We have a 2005 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab 4X4 Laramie and the dealer assured us that it was more than enough truck to tow this toy hauler. I beg to differ! The truck feels like it is under a constant strain. I've never been one to complain about gas mileage but we averaged 9.2 MPG towing this unit which was completely empty. I will be loading my 2014 HD Ultra Limited and associated gear this weekend for a trip to the North GA mountains. That will be the ultimate test to find out if my Dakota can handle the additional weight!

I haul mine with a 2013 silverado 1500. Its got all the extra towing stuff and is rated for 9800. Its pulls it pretty well but I only get 6 to 9 mpg loaded or empty. I put three quads in mine and all the associated gear along with the everyday camping gear and it doesn't seem much different even though I know its at least 2000 pounds heavier. Most of our driving is pretty flat so I don't know how it does in the mountains. Be sure to let me know how it goes. Good luck with your trip and have fun.

My DD and son in law had the same issue with the same truck pulling their new hybrid. It was just not enough truck, so they got a Ram 2500. No more issue.
Good luck on your trip, take your time.

Good morning and welcome to the forums.

If I may, I suggest you contact someone you know that has a 3/4 ton standby for rescue and then hope you do not need to make that call.
