First time owner 2010 Newmar Essex

We live in Montana and we just bought a 2010 Newmar Essex.
Working on getting all the bugs fixed and we are very excited about traveling and exploring. I have our maiden voyage planned in May for five nights stay in a ocean front spot at the Sea Perch RV Park. We have a 1200 mile trip to this destination so we will spilt the trip into two days. Our second trip in the works is going to be a three day country music festival in Mountain Home Idaho in July.
More trips in the planning!

Hi


Congrats on the new rig
You might want to give your self a little wiggle room, 1200 miles in 2 days thatís a big bite if everything goes right. If your still in shake down mode who knows what might pop up. Better to be safe than sorry.
Good luck

this place is great

Safe travels
🎄 Happy Holidays 🎄

Congratulations on your Essex. I totally understand your schedule if you are still working. You do what you have to do. I'm still in long mileage mode. I did some 500-600 mi days coming home from the last trip. Maybe not for much longer.
