Newbie jumping in head first

Hello all!

My family is in the process of purchasing a 2019 Coachmen Mirada 35BH. We are extremely excited as we have two girls that are severely handicapped and camping/vacations have become a thing of the past. Purchasing this RV will allow us to get back to our roots. Wife and I were huge campers pre family and stupid excited to start this new chapter.

We will be renting an Allegra tiffon for our spring break to make sure that the RV experience is something our family can handle (quick one week trip to Myrtle and Smokey Mts) and as long as all goes well, finalize purchase and do a 1 month long cross country trip this summer!

Canít wait to learn from everyone in here!
