Hello from New Jersey

Hi Everyone, Sean here.

My wife and I are just starting to look for and RV, we are a long way away from actually purchasing one. First is to build the garage for it (got the land just need the permits), then we will rent a couple times hopefully this spring and summer, then make the purchase sometime probably sometime next year.

However we believe we do know what we want, we fell in love with the Isata 5 28SS with the explorer package. So here I am! learning as much as we can on these boards before we buy.

Welcome from NJ! Let me get this right....you are FIRST going to build a garage for it. Then you are going to rent it to see if it is for you. Isn't that putting the cart before the horse just a tad?

LOL

Actually the garage was happening no matter what. The garage will also hold a few of my toys like the ATV and the snowmobile. And we are getting something no matter what, either it be an actual class C motorhome or a trailer. I want to rent a 30 foot motorhome to get a feel of it as I have never driven one before.

Really finding the Isata changed how the garage will be built in that it will now have an RV garage door.

Wow there are a ton of people from NJ. Very cool! We should have a mini NJ gathering (unless one already happens).

Would be wonderful. I'm in, as long as masks and social distancing are observed. We need a group in our state.
