Very nice! Congratulations! It's a beauty! A lot to learn????!!!! We're on our 3rd Coach and we're still learning... I read manuals while Tony drives. Also, when $h!# happens, (as it will), we try to look at the lighter side. We believe there should be a reality show called "The Amazing Race... in Coaches". So, when faced with an obstacle (assuming we remember our sense of humor), we go into something like "contestants must now find a place that has tow trailer tires to fit their particular trailer, on Labor Day, in Bernalillo, New Mexico."

BTW... this is true, saw a KOA sign as the tire disintegrated, pulled off the freeway, dragged trailer to KOA, people there called Walmart for us, they had the tire, helped us unhook the trailer, we drove the coach to Walmart, had tire placed on rim, went back to KOA, they were right there to assist with fitting tire, offered them money and beer... and they didn't want to take anything! We left them beer and money anyway. BTW... the lesson here is have a spare tire for the tow trailer! (We do now!).

You will have many stories and much fun in your new rig!

Congratulations Jeff!!! My wife and I did basically the same thing you did. We went from tent camping to a 30' Hurricane to a 34' Storm to a 40' Winnebago Tour in the space of about 6 months. Yes, there is a lot to learn but learning is living! And the best thing about the way you did it is you avoided the depreciation! Good Job!

Very nice, I am also new to the RV world and I have taken two short weekend trips so far (as advised by brother in-law who has had an RV forever). Try to make first camping close to Wal-Mart or similar as you will realize you always need something, at least I have so far. Be safe and have a great time.
