We Did It!!!

Well, We took our 1997 Winn. brave on a short trip. We went to a park about 50 miles out. Our purpose was to try everything out, to make sure it worked. Yea, everything worked great.

We are gonna try to stay in a few more places, kinda close to home. We just want to try to make sure all is ok, before we go too far. This is all new to us, so just trying to be careful.

Thanks to all of you for valuable info and tips. Please wish us luck on our new venture!!!

I'm glad to hear everything is going great for you so far. I think you're smart to start off with some short trips first to work out any kinks. I wish you all the best on your future adventures!

Congrats on a 'positive' first camping experience...and here's to many more. That first trip will be the one you'll probably most fondly remember.

Hi 98723A,
My first coach was a 1978 Winnebago Brave. You are in good company. There are many happy memories waiting to be made. Enjoy

Congrats! My second MH was a 1977 Winnebago and my third was a 1998 Adventurer. Both were trouble free. Safe travels.

We just did one of those too! It was great. Of course, it was only 1 1/2 hours away and flat ground. Our next one is going to be cross country and mountainy. I am starting to get nervous. But good for you and have fun
