first time joiner

from someone who's not typically much of a joiner.

I have read various threads/info over the years and appreciate that the members take the time and effort to respond. Perhaps I can provide some help to someone in return.

We're now on our 3rd RV, 21' C class, then 34' gas Thor A class, now (last year) 38' 5th wheel Coachmen Brookstone. We have spent more of the past year in the RV's than in our house, part in the Thor in Florida then in the 5th wheel, escaping the Tennessee winter.

We are currently going back and forth from our house in Kingston and the 5th wheel in Gatlinburg at Outdoor Resorts, about 2 hrs drive. It's a bit cooler in Gatlinburg by the creek in the shade.

Having lived for about 9 months years ago (1978-79?) in a 23' travel trailer pull behind in Athens, Al, while working in the area, I can say I really appreciate the new RV's.

Welcome to the Forum! This is a great place for sharing experience and just plain ideas.

Glad you are enjoying your new rig and the lifestyle. Many here are doing the same and others will be joining more use when they retire.

Love the sunshine and warmer weather!
