Couple days late, but hey everyone!!

I didn't see this thread when I made my profile with iRV2.com a couple days ago, so let me fill you in:

My wife and I are in are late 20's with three kids (2, 6, & 8) and we love to travel. My side of the family owns an RV dealership, rentals, and maintenance shop [ moderator edit ] I worked with them for about a year in the shop learning a little bit about taking care and fixing RV's. The wife knows nothing about them except what we're learning on our current project. Speaking of our project, I have a thread for it on here (My first Complete Remodel).

We'd like to be able to be full timers sooner then most, try it out for a couple years and let the kids see the good old USA with their own eyes.

We just purchased our first RV, it's a Class A National RV Sea Breeze 29' with the Chevy 454, traded a AR-15 for it actually. This is the one in the thread above. I consider myself new to RVing and so does my wife, but we'll help someone out if we can and are very open to any advice you might have. Thanks for reading!!

Unlike RVs AR-15s are appreciating in value!

Hi folks! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! I'm sure you'll have her in tip-top shape in no time! You've got many wonderful memories to build with those kids!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
