New rv owner

Good morning all.
I am new to owning but have traveled all my life. Parents owned 78 cab over coachman camper. For 20+ years we went coast to coast for weeks during the summer.
They upgraded to 5th wheel upon retiring,, and spent 5 weeks on the road in Canada and Alaska.


My wife and I briefly owned a popup for a trip to Colorado. Decided tents and pop-ups were not our thing.
We rented a passport and loved it.
Wife was concerned slides left openings for things to get in and worried about failure of mechanics... so we bought a forest wildwood 26bhxl with no slides. I am just happy to be camping again.
With 3 kids, 4,12 and 23, we hope to go often this year if pandemic allows.
Already upgrading.
Lots of questions.
I am reading through lots of posts, and watching many videos.

James and family.

That looks like a perfect camper for your family. Slides do give a bit more room, but now your wife won't have to worry about mechanical failure.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forum!
