1st RV, 1st forum!

Hello
My husband and I purchased a Winnebago View 2 weeks ago and we are still reading the manuals and trying to figure out everything. Since this is our first RV, it's all new to us. My husband has retired and I'm about to do the same at the end of May. Around June 15 we plan to take off for a year adventure heading west then north. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Bridget

Glad to have you here with us. Congratulations on the retirements.

My best advice is to take your time and enjoy the voyage. There is much to see and you have chosen a great way to see it all. Most states have a tourism dept and will be glad to send you brochures of things to do in their states. Use it.

Best of luck and Happy Trails!!!

Yes time is dragging! All I can think about is being on the road but I've got so much to do before we hit the road!
