Hello from Middle Georgia!

Excited to be a part of this forum and community! I have been a part of many forums in the past, from Harleys to Hammocks (camping). I have moderated and been a regular contributor. I hope to one day have experience to share here.

We have been rv camping now for about 5 years. Currently we own a Coachman Catalina 293qbck. We love it. However, we feel the time has come to make our next move.

We have a deal done on a 2018 FR3 30 ds, we are heading to the dealership again on Saturday to drive it one more time and spend some time in it before pulling the trigger.

So I am here to learn, ask a few questions, and interact in what I know is a great community. (I have been "trolling" now for a long time) I consider it research and using the search function...yes, I know to do that before asking and posting!

Welcome from north central Florida. Georgia State Parks are beautiful and we have enjoyed camping at a few. If only we had more time...

Hi GABulldawg. I to am from the middle GA area and an avid Bulldog fan. Go Dawgs!!! I believe we are heading for another championship year but maybe this year we'll go all the way. Sure hope so. We have some tremendous players but a few areas of concern according to GA247sports. I believe we have all bases covered and I think its gonna be a great year for UGA. Hope to read your posts in the future. Happy RVing.

to the Forum from Alaska!

Make sure you get a Slim Shade RV Door Window.

We have the same bathroom layout. We upgraded our toilet to a DOMETIC 320 elongated with deep ceramic bowl and enameled wood seat.
see: Converting to porcelain toilet

Just a few of the tweeks to make the FR3 more like home.

Read the FR3 sub forum for more things you have to get. It is like a new hobby.
