Another New to RV'ing member

I'm considering getting an RV. I think I want to move in that direction but I'm investigating to be sure. Expect some off the wall questions as I have never RV'd. I've always wanted the opportunity and I'm about ready to take the leap but want to know more about what I'm jumping into.

We all jumped in at one point or another, you will be amazed at the wonderful folks on this site willing to help. There are no silly questions, either!

You may want to consider renting something first, to help you figure out what you will enjoy the most. If you do not enjoy it, you will not use it. Attending a large RV show is another good place to check everything out.

Check out the forums, you will find every type of RV owner. Then start asking your questions! It will not be long before you are helping answer questions to others.

Welcome to the forum. Ask away! My first question to you would be how do you plan on using your RV? Full time, months at a time, occasionally? And how many people will travel with you? Pets?
RV shows are great to walk into just about anything, BUT beware...you get the "I wants" really bad!!
Have fun exploring and let us know if we can answer any questions you have.
