Lookout Newbie Incoming!!!

Hello All!!!!

Newbie RV'r here, we sold our house and purchased a 2018 XLR 35VL5 Toy Hauler to live in for a while until we either build or find the right house......we're downsizing the kids are gone and they're not coming back!!!

I promise to research before I ask the most common questions......

We've always talked about buying a camper/rv but never pulled the trigger until now.

Not new to hauling or pulling trailers etc. but new to RV'ing....

Welcome from South Jersey. After just spending 6 months in a 32 ft class C. It will feel small after living in a house.

Welcome from the flat lands of Iowa where the pulling is easy and the winds can be wicked.
