First motorhome

Just got a 2003 Minnie Winnie 430. It is on the Ford E450 chassis with a v10.

First motorhome for me and the Wife. Drove home about an hour and 15 from the dealer and it handled real nice.

Now sitting in the driveway going over everything and doing a lot small fixes. Changing oil- painting propane tank-- aligning loose catches and stuff on cargo doors.

Cleaned rugs and Wife is thinking about bedding etc.

Next trip to the NJ inspection station.

Than one campout.

Plan is to head to Florida late Winter (March) to catch an early Spring.

New tires, brakes and a lot of upgraded suspension stuff, plus new ride rite air helper springs.

Unit has two slide outs a back up camera and lots of stuff to maintain--I mean enjoy.

This forum has lots to offer, probably should have started reading it years ago.

Well that's all for now. John

Welcome to the forum! You are now enjoying what is to become your hobby for quite some time in the future!! You'll always have little projects that you want to get done, only to find new ones at seemingly random intervals!! At the very least, you'll have your own "dog house" (I know I do...) when DW decides it's time critters to be put outside....

Again, Welcome!!
