Greetings & Salutations!

I'm not sure what I've gotten my dh and myself into! We started talking and decided that we wanted to be able to travel with our dog and the only good way to do that was to get some sort of rv and how hard can that be right?

So here I am, still digging and trying to get quality information about this crazy industry. I was told by several people that this was a good forum with friendly, helpful people so I'm hoping to get answers to the questions as they arise from unbiased experienced rv owners or even newbies that have found useful information.

You came to the right place. I have been on only a few months and I have already learned quite a lot. When my DH and I buy our MH next summer we will be far more informed than just hoping we don't make a big mistake.

Read some of the old threads. There is info on how the refrigerators work, where to find your batteries, what tires to buy, and pulling a car.

Most say to find the floor plan you want and then worry about the rig. Good luck!

Love the sunshine and warmer weather!

Thanks all! We are getting closer. We've decided to go Class A. Just a better fit for us and our pup. Now to pick a model and a floorplan!
