Congratulations, so many things to learn. Tiffin is a great choice. We were very green when we bought our first. I started by reading the book RVing 101. I had to read it several times because I would forget some things that I read before it became pertinent. One of the things I forgot was the advice not to dump the black tank until it was 2/3 to 3/4 full. So we set it up with the sewer to open drain. Fortunately I realized I needed to re-read everything once we got going so we corrected that problem fairly soon before it caused coning or any other black tank problem. There was a thread on the biggest mistakes that rvers made. It is worth reading if you can find it.

First RV

Congrats!! Looks like a real nice RV. You will have fun stocking it up and making it your own. We are here to answer any questions you may have. If you are at a campground and have any questions ask a friendly neighbor. No matter how long you have camped new situations come up. Safe travels.

If you do a search on the irv2 website you should be able to find some funny but useful stories. I used "mistakes" to find a few threads.

Congrats on your new "home!"
Are you two pups or remarried? I haven't checked your profile. There are a lot of older folks like me here, but there are some younger ones, too.
One that is funny to read is The Crowded Camper. They are in a fiver, have kids and a lot of great ideas.
Have fun!!!

That's quite the rig to start off with....but hey, skip the small stuff and go right into the big boys, right? haha. I hope you enjoy it. My advice, before you do anything, ask lots of questions, and read the manuals. I remember the first my last Class A was our first, and a learning curve (I started to fill the back bedroom with water because I was totally doing it wrong...who knew it would be different than my class C?? haha).

Great forum with answers to your questions.
We really appreciate this forum and the members who have been so helpful and kind.

We have interior photos but we'll be doing some before/after type photos soon, so we didn't want to post them just yet.

The tires are 1 year old, the batteries are new, we're taking it to Red Bay in early March for a full look over by the folks at Tiffin.

Did you settle on a name yet? You could post an interior shot of your headliner that shouldn't give away too much. A youngin' here already has a name picked out if we ever get an opportunity to upgrade to our "Phaeton of the Opera". Something will come up. Ours is an in-joke based on something local and something we almost pulled the trigger on As long as it has meaning to you.
