Thumbs down First RV.. go big or go home?

Well we spent more than what we wanted but ultimately I am super excited about our new rig... My mom wanted to travel through the country again while she still can, we wrangled back and forth on used vs. new and ultimately I think I followed the right advice. Buy your first coach last.. I am going to be nervous for a bit driving but hey it's just a car right

Welcome to iRV2.

Just a REALLY big station wagon . Check your state license requirements on air brakes and weight ( we need you to be legal out there) then get out and enjoy.

Yes I need to have my class B license, trying to get a little driving in before I have to take the test then fail. So far I'm doing pretty good backing up is a bit intimidated but I just stop and get out and look if it's tight to get my orientation correct.

Only one curb has seen abuse in the making of this movie lol..
