Still in save mode to hit the road

Hi Everyone!
As stated, we are still working and saving for our dream to hit the road and live full time. The stated RV and tow vehicle are what we are buying, when we buy. We are about a year off and looking for any advice about what you, as a full timer, would find most important in your RV setup...or any other comments you have.
We look forward to meeting on here and on the road in the future. Just our RV show experience alone has brought us many new "friends."

Thanks and look forward to getting to know some of you!

Good to have you aboard. I see by your profile you looking at a 320RS. That's a Columbus isn't it? If so, we've got a forum for that... Palomino - Forest River Forums

Enjoy the next year prepping for full-time!

Hi there! If you haven't RV before you could rent one and get some experience while you count down the days to becoming owners. In the beginning I wouldn't had mind learning the ropes in another unit other than my new baby.

As you read through threads dot down some notes that could be of help to you. It could be step-by-step directions or even the link to the discussion.

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

Thanks all!

Thank you everyone for the welcome wishes and suggestions. We are very excited planning, and might I add, a little impatient! On some days, I just want to sell it all and go, and other (more rational) days, I decide to sit back, continue to save, research, research, and dream.

Triguy, yes, our future 5er is a Columbus. We recently went to an RV show in Birmingham, AL just to continue to research and look, and they offered us such a great deal on it, that we bought it! The deal later fell through, but only because the warranty issue and us not really being able to use it for that first year. Even if we purchased the additional 2nd year warranty (which we plan to do) we did not feel it was worth buying it and having to store it for a year.

We do know that if we got a great deal this year, we will get a great deal when we are ready.

Thanks again, everyone! Today is one of those days I just want to leave it all behind and go! But I shall be patient (ha) and continue with the plan. Oh, the plan is to pay for truck and 5er outright, so as not to have any payments on the road. And hopefully, in the meantime, my company will offer the early retirement and I will be set free!!! Cross fingers everyone!
Please and thank you!
Enjoy your Sunday....
