Well, I'd say you've come to the right place.
New here myself, but I've perused the place long enough to see the wealth of information available for the asking.
Good luck.

Hello, and to the forums. Hope you enjoy the stay, and learn a lot, and can teach others what you already know. Lot of fine folks here willing to help. We were all new once, anyway.

Hello and welcome to the forums! There's a is learning curve to RVing but you can take the corners with the speed you are comfortable with. Some of us, like myself, took it one step at a time.

This site is great to ask questions, seek information and bounce ideas. There's very little that hasn't happen already to someone else here. Like Windrider said - we all were new at one time.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

I know what you mean. First time I towed a camper, my stomach was in knots the whole way. You'll have questions about treating the roof, black water tank odors, checking for leaks, weight distribution, etc. The best lessons learned are the ones you learn on your own, but feel free to ask anything; on a thread post or pm.

When it comes to the safety of you and yours, there are no stupid questions.

Welcome to the forum....any questions, ask away. I guess we all started as newbies. I started out camping when I was about 5 years old in the mountains of California. Over the years I have tent camped, moved up to a PUP in 2010, now in a tt. Guess what? I am still learning about things, just don't want to learn the hard way, so I read and ask questions. Hope you enjoy your camping experience, take photos and make memories.
