Howdy All...

I just found the site while looking for a brake controller.... Gotta love those links, ya know!!

AS the title says... I'm about as new to RV's as is humanly possible. In fact I don't even have one yet!! However, one has to start somewhere...

I already have the TV (hope that stands for tow vehicle) and I'm looking for a toy hauler (fiver) as we speak. But it doesn't end there.... My plans are to go on a bit of a tour with my dog riding shotgun, my ATV's riding in comfort, and my boat bringing up the rear. Oh yes... My first 5th wheel and I'm looking to do the tamdem rig from the get-go.... Too much for a beginner? Maybe... But, where there's a will, there's a way.

I've narrowed my fiver choices down to about half a dozen manufacturers... Each with their own pros and cons. I'm on a mission, and with a bit of your help.... I will succeed.

Glad to be here...

Dan, glad to have you aboard. Membership is free and you can ask all of the questions you want...and you get back free answers.

I know you are excited to be shopping for a trailer. You can find links to sites that expalin towing capacity. I noticed you have a 3/4 ton truck and are considering a 5er, so be sure you understand the weight issues before you go shopping. 99% of the RV dealers will tell you that you can pull any thing with that truck.

Got any questions, just ask.

Ken

Hey Dan !
welcome to iRV2 !!
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">...Too much for a beginner? Maybe... But, where there's a will, there's a way.

You got it !!

What ToyHaulers you looking at? They are certainly coming into their own these days, quality is there, the comforts are going up, its a good time to be toyhaulin.

We have a ToyHaulers section of the forum here. Sometime let us know what you are looking at in 'haulers there, and by the way just exactly how warmed over your PSD is, and how's the hunting, dogs, and bikes ?

welcome,
Mike
