Newbies first run

Well picked up our first RV yesterday, a 1999 Winnebago Chieftain, but didn't get on the road till this morning. Totally enjoyable 135 mile drive to the Gilbert Ray Campground outside of Tucson, Az. Other than having to check the manual on the leveling system everything went like we knew what we were doing. We have some friends driving out from Tucson to join us for a celebratory dinner.
Several of the helpful and friendly people on this forum asked for an update and some pictures, so this is it.

Pick up today, gone tomorrow. Man/Woman of great courage. Congradulations, I picked up my new MH 4 weeks ago today and so far have only managed to get it turned around in my driveway. Knew I should have cut more trees. Enjoy, we'll be catching up soon.

With still almost 2 feet of snow on the ground I am extremely envious of you guys sitting out in that beautiful sunny and warm weather. Enjoy your new rig to the max!
