Brand New Too!

Good morning to all,
After years of dreaming, researching, plotting, test driving, conversations, sleepless nights, soul searching, pep talks, walks around the blocks to clear my head, I bought my first RV yesterday! I am thrilled, scared and excited. I have downsized twice, retired, and moved halfway across the country to prepare for a life on the road. I would like to travel full time for at least a year. The learning curve is going to be "fun".

I bought a 29 ft, 2016 Forrest River travel trailer.

You're definitely in the right place to get all the help and hand holding you'll need. You're right, it should be fun!
