That's awesome!

We've been camping with our kids for the past 24 years of their lives and they still enjoy going. WONDERFUL way to experience all the beauty of this country. Don't let anyone tell or make reference that it's cheaper to camp....it isn't by a long shot. When we factor in a monthly payment, insurance, fuel expenses and of course the cost of a site, I could go on a couple or more cruises a year. It's not about the $$$ to me....it's the experience and the memories.

Enjoy!

Good for you and to the forum.

It will help to put the year make and model of your camper in your User CP that way it will be easy for others to see what you have without asking.

If you have any questions or problems this is the place to find friendly people with a lot of knowledge.


In the meantime here is a link which will help. New to RV's helpful hints by wmtire

Just out of sheer curiosity did Covid 19 have anything to do with your decision to purchase an RV?

Congrats on joining the club! May I suggest a shakedown trip in your backyard or driveway as your situation permits? It will give you a chance to get familiar with all the systems and controls with the advantage of being HOME if you discover you "forgot" something. Even after 20 years of camping with popup and travel trailer, we still use a list when gets "adjusted" regularly so we don't forget stuff or more importantly take too much stuff!
