First time RV owners from Central PA

My wife and I took delivery of our Raptor last month and are leaving for our maiden voyage Monday after getting it fitted to our liking! I've wanted to get a camper for over 5 years or so now. I've gone from looking at class A's to travel trailers to 5th wheels to park models back to travel trailers and finally pulling the trigger on a 5th wheel. I had a floor plan in my head and I finally found it. I've learned so much from this site in just a short time. I figured I'd stop and introduce myself before I pummel y'all with questions.

So here's to a hopefully long awaited beginning to some good times in my new second home 😬

Congratulations! You will definitely learn a lot here. That's what we did so we could make a somewhat educated decision prior to buying. Have a wonderful time.
Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

Congrats on your new Raptor, Slo Mo,...and welcome to the forum. You patiently took your time, evaluated your needs and wants, and selected the floor plan of your dreams. All key points of a successful campaign. Only two things remain. Share some pics with us on the New Rig sub forum (we love pics) ... And fuel up your tugger and start making some happy memories!
