Greetings and Salutations!

I am jumping into the RV life and I love it. I can't wait to take my "new" Winnie out! New is "new to me", that is. She is a 1978 Minnie Winnie, Dodge chassis, bought and given as a gift from my Mother! She knew I always wanted one. It is definitely not state-of-the-art, but I love the quaintness of it. All the charm, you know.

Welcome Papabearxl, not just to the best forum on the web but to the wonderful world of rving. You might want to check out the Vintage RV section below.

That Dodge chassis with the 360 engine and 727 transmission was quite a workhorse and should serve you well.

PapabearXL, glad to have you here. Check into the section for Vintage RVs. We are dragging around a 79 Silver Streak and she gets lots of attention.

Welcome R.V.Lady. Hope you enjoy the forum as much as I have. The best thing to do with your 5er is to hook it up and head out. Go north, it's already hot in the south.

You all are extremely nice! i do appreciate the welcomes.
RV Lady, let me use my forst "Welcome", to you. I hope you enjoy the 5er. I was looking for a 5er to tow behind my 2000 Sierra 2500, just didn't find one that I could get. Had some issues with budget, but am EXTREMELY glad I have my gift,in my 78. Hope to see ALL of you out there,on the road, when I get to roam around!

Have a great Independence Day!
