Another Newbie

Hello, We just joined today after shopping for an RV all day. My wife and I are interested in camping and are looking forward to getting involved in the RV community (hopefully).

We figured our first step would be to purchase an RV. This experience has been quite entertaining so far. I know we have only been at if for over a month but in this internet age, we thought, or at least I thought it may have been a little easier

I have already read a lot on this site and will have lots of questions, I'm sure, as we begin this adventure.

Thank you all for the nice welcome. Trust me the question will be coming. I will try to ask them in the appropriate Forum. Currently we really like the looks of Coachmen Concord 300DS but having trouble finding a real one to physically sit in and look at. I'm beginning to believe they are only "virtual RV's" only existing on my computer .

However, a dealer made a real attractive offer on a brand new Forrest River Sunseeker 3010. Any comments about these models would be greatly appreciated. I will also asking about Extended Warranties and if they are worth it when we get close to purchasing an RV... Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to the education and discussions on this site.
