Dealer is filling the propane tank. Interestingly enough, never said a word about petrol.

Welcome to the RV world.

Sounds like you are having some buyer remorse. STOP IT. The RV life and enjoyment you will get will soon do away with any reserve you may have now. Keep an open mind and you will find lots of like minded people who you can enjoy life with.

Keep in mind an RV will always require some maintenance as things wear out and are used. It is just like a house in that respect.

When we picked ours up the Dealer had it filled with gas already. Never mentioned it during purchase. Very nice of them.

Before long you will change your name from rvnewb101 to something else, because with the camper purchase it will be more seasoned and experienced.

Word to the wise. Use Costco/Essex Credit ONLY if you're in NOOOOOO hurry to get your RV. Long story, but holy cow...

You sound just like many of us did in the beginning. Heck, I still wonder sometimes if the fun is worth the cost. But to us it is. Your deal sounds pretty good and it sounds like you have checked it pretty closely. You have gotten some good advise on this forum. Now that you have the motor home, relax and enjoy it.

Who has the lowest financing rates for excellent credit rating? Essex through Costco?

Our dealer secured financing through BofA that was a half point lower than Essex thru Costco. May be worth checking out.

Their normal app fee is $400, but $200 for Costco members. Guess the 6 or 7 grand isn't enough profit!

I am frustrated, exhausted, and completely discouraged. I'm now 90% on the side of bagging the idea of getting an RV at this point in time.
You can deduct the interest on the loan on your fed income tax return.

Tires should be replaced a 5 years, not 7 to 10. Date code is on sidewall, is four digits like (4510) first 2 are week of the year and last are the year. We are on our sixth rv (Gulfstream Conquest), and have tried 5ers, towables and motorhomes over 35 years. Just dont feel intimidated if you do not know something. RVers are some of the friendliest people you will meet and are glad to help. Geico was cheapest for me but they have all my cars and toys insured.

But I must say (as I've read this many times).... if you don't post pictures.. it didn't really happen...

Please post some pictures of your new baby, everyone LOVES pictures !!!
