We are experienced in travel, but not in motorhomes. Just purchased a 2011 Lexington 283TS after downsizing from a Hitch Hiker fifth wheel. I know we are losing storage space, but will make it work. We will be towing a Ford Edge, and that is also a new experience. We will give it all a maiden voyage in about a week, and then we travel 12-16 weeks per year, staying at most stops at least a week. I have used another forum, and found it to be VERY helpful. I am sure this will be the case, here. Thanks in advance!
