We finally did it

We looked off and on for many years as my join date shows. We bought a 2014 Thor Tuscany RX in January. Now currently waiting on Roadmaster stuff to get here for our Explorer. Can't wait to go somewhere!

Welcome to ownership!

Enjoy the road.

Your profile appears that you may have kids at home and not yet retired. Therefore, you may be more of the weekend warrior vs long trips that go for months, or full timing....

Regardless, this RV life is both enjoyable and has its own challenges as well. As it sounds like this is your first RV, the best way for me to learn was to jump in and take it to a closer location for learning how to use your new house and related aspects of camping life.

I looked at your area, and see many US Army Core Of Engineers parks to the North, South, East and West of you. Those parks would provide great family experiences as well as being reasonable cost. If you are 62+, get a Senior Pass and stay at most NP, including USACOE parks, for 50% off.

Some good tools that you may like are the Allstays Camp and RV app, Rvparkreviewes.com, Recreation.gov, Reserveamerica.com, just to mention a few.

From one Newbie to another

Welcome Ernie!

Have a fantastic time! We are fairly new to the life style ourselves and are slowly getting into it. That is until we finally retire in June!!

All the best to you, your co-pilot, and the crew!

My thanks to the moderator for removing my comments before the picture loaded…all I was getting was a blue question mark in a picture-frame.
