So we bought our first motorhome

Finally got too old for tent camping and bought our first RV in April.

We've been out 5 times for 2-3 nights with 4 more long weekends before labor day. Then a big trip planned for mid September

Spent more than we planned, but who doesn't? Loving our choice so far.Click image for larger version

Congrats on your new Sprinter motor home. We have had ours for a couple yrs and have put about 12k miles on it so far.

One thing to watch for is to not over load it - the passenger/cargo carrying capacity is pretty low on the Sprinters. The next time out, I'd weigh it on the CAT scales for about $13 to see where you are weight wise.

Of course you will love the fuel economy. The mountain in the background looks like Mt Rainier from south of Seattle.

Congratulations and good luck

We got our first Motor Home last fall and have really enjoyed it. Hope you have a long and safe camping retirement. There is a lot of info in this forum. So many people willing to help you with a problem you cant figure out.
