New to RVing looking forward to exploring in our Wildwood X-Lite

Recently purchased a Wildwood travel trailer. It seems like we need so much stuff - and have a lot to learn!

Is there a forum for newbies?

Can't wait to get rolling!

What is your favorite part of RVing?

Sandy

Got to tell you. Our 5 week trip wandering around the midwest this summer was really wonderful.

You do not need all that stuff. A sewer hose and a water hose will get you going.

A lot can be bought as needed.

Get out there.
