Completely new to RVing

I'm completely new to RVing. My wife and I both just recently signed on with a medical travel company and will be living in the travel trailer we just purchased full time starting in February. We have never done anything like this and are completely new to RVing. We will be on 3 month assignments and moving from place to place every 3 months. We decided to go with a travel trailer vs short term apartments or hotels. Any advice is appreciated! Looking forward to a new adventure.

IRV2 has a lot of information. Do some research on the areas that you may need help on. If you've never RV'd before take it slow, don't go out an buy a bunch of supplies you may never use.

If you have a specific question just post, you will get reply's.

We started out tent camping, moved to a Suburban with a tent in the back, and then a 31' Class C. We now have a Class A diesel pusher and really enjoy it, lots of room and all the comforts of home.

Good Luck

Floor Plan, Floor Plan, Floor Plan
Find the floor plan that fits your needs and wants. This will be your home and you should be comfortable in it.

Features are a big item. Do you want a dishwasher, washer/dryer, residential fridge. I can do without the dishwasher but the other options are a necessity in my opinion.

There are 5 traveling medical persons in our resort. They have everything from a TT to a large coach. They all seem to be enjoying their work and travel.

Welcome to the forum!
If you are going to be where it is cold, you will want to be sure it is a unit set up for cold weather.
Good luck with your search for the right TT.

Thanks for all the replies so far. We have already bought our travel trailer. We went with a Rockwood Ultra Lite 2703ws.

THIS^^^^^

Plus, talk to other owners at campgrounds. Lots of wisdom out there.
