Hello from California!

My name is Kara, and my husband and I just bought a brand new Sonoma 240rks! We're complete newbies at this, and I'm filled with excitement and trepidation at the same time! The kids have just about all moved out, so we decided to go exploring in style! What have we done???

Welcome to the forum! There's a lot to be learned here. Don't be afraid to ask questions but be warned... the search function is your friend, use it if you can. Like all forums, you need to have a thick skin at times to get the answer you are looking for. I like your choice of rear kitchen. We have that in a Surveyor and love it. Fill out you profile so people know what you have and where you are so they can better answer any questions. Again, welcome and enjoy the experience!

Hi from a fellow Sonoma owner! Our youngest heads off to college in 3 weeks, and we just bought a Sonoma too (a 167BH) - picked it up last Friday!

We had hoped to go out in it tomorrow for two nights, but our older daughter is sick and we decided to stay home and take care of her for now. Gives us a bit more time to work on outfitting the trailer for our first trip, as well.

Welcome to the world of RVing! Lots of good family memories to come.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
