Future Fulltimers

Hi everyone! New to the forum. Have been reading lots of threads. You all have been helpfull in us making a decision on a purchase of a new 5thw and tow vehicle. Thank you. We will take possession of our GMC Denali 3500 diesel DRW 4×4 with a Riverstone 442mc this coming Saturday. Looking forward for more advice and tips. Not new to camping just new to Glamping.

Very exciting! Do you plan on traveling as fulltimers or being stationary?

Congratulations and welcome to the forum.

You might want to browse the 5th wheel and toyhauler forums to get tips specific to your type of rig.

They've already purchased a Riverstone 5th wheel. So they should start by checking out the Riverstone sub-forum.

x2.
Don't know where I got the toyhauler in my head.
Just did a YouTube tour of that rig and it's pretty impressive. It's definitely a rig you could fulltime in. It's an apartment on wheels.

Mind the ratings on the RV- its maximum weight (gross vehicle weight rating/GVWR), the axle weight ratings (gross axle weight rating/GAWR), and the tire load capacity. Same with the truck, but it sounds like you'll have plenty of truck.
