Camping in our driveway or in a CG nearby has been suggested to us. Just need to finish testing our systems (Refer on gas and hot water) and we'll be ready to go. Presuming it stops raining anyway.

I say a very strong YES! Start with several short trips.

Too many people jump in the deep end. But most of us have worked our way up from tents, pop-tops, and other small campers before getting to that big travel trailer, 5th Wheel, or Motorhome.

And even then, it is very smart to take a short trial trip with any new-to-you RV to make sure you know how to make everything work - and that everything works right. Called a break-in cruise for boaters, it is a VERY GOOD IDEA for RV's too...and like said above, it can be as simple as staying in the RV in your driveway, or a short trip to a nearby campground or park.

Best luck
