Hello from Michigan
The family is picking up a 2015 SunSeeker 2860DSF on Friday. The rig is in beautiful condition with about 11,000 on the engine. We are new to the RV World and probably would never have done this without Covid affecting our decision making.
We have two teenagers and 2 dogs we will be traveling with. 2 weeks ago we rented a 22' Four Winds for about 5 days and put 1,800 miles during a trip to visit college campuses with our high school senior daughter. We had a blast traveling in the RV, enough so that we decided to buy one. The kids are in remote learning right now and I'm flexible enough with my job that we hope to take off after Thanksgiving and hit the road. We were planning on heading south but had some unfortunate news yesterday regarding the death of a close friend and may head towards Wisconsin instead. We really would like to get the feel of owning our own, especially in sub-freezing temperatures and then use it as a base for a major ski trip to Colorado over the holidays or mid-January.
I'm active in some other forums but need to get the lay of the land around here. I've done a bunch of searching already but have some specific questions I haven't found the answer to yet. Please let me know if it's appropriate to head to the SunSeeker sub-forum to post those to get the most views.
Thanks in advance to all of the knowledgeable people that answer the same newbie questions over and over. I will try to make use of "search" as best I can.
