A newbie with some experience

Hi my name is Carin. I'm embarking on a new adventure in my life. I'm going to purchase a TT and spend the rest of my life traveling with my dog and seeing the good old USA.

I lived with my ex in a 37' class A for a year. Loved it.

I've never pulled a trailer before, never backed one up and was not the one that did the dumping etc. I helped but never did it alone.

I'll be 67 this year and feel it is time to RV again and meet new people. Living in an apartment looking at cars and a parking lot is not my idea of living.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your vast wealth of knowledge.

Thank you

Thank you all for the generous welcome........

Still in the research mode but I've got it narrowed down to what I want. Just a matter of figuring out options and then I will order in May.

Thanks again for the welcome!
