We are new owners also
We just purchased our first coach as well. A 2000 Beaver Patriot Thunder Montecello, 40' with two street side slides, and a fantastic Caterpiller C12 engine. Talk about power and comfortable driving. we are also learning as much as we can so when I can get back to it in April our FT adventure will begin in ernest. Im sure you are going to enjoy it very much, and in Michigan there arent any special requirements to drive it as far as I know, but we will be changing our residency to South Dakota.
