Greetings from Maryland

Hello all!

After referring to this website for information a number of times and having rented an RV a few years ago, my wife and I decided to go ahead and dive into the RV domain and purchased a new Thor ACE 29.2 --- she liked the floor plan the best and I was wanting less than 30 feet for our first class A.

This site has been an absolute treasure and an endless source of information and experience from those who actually DO what we are hoping to learn to enjoy and experience.

I'm happy to be here and hope I can contribute at some point. This is a dream come true for me. You guys are the examples that made it seem achievable.

Best to all:

Dave

Welcome to the forum Dave-Oh. Glad that you joined us. Somewhere along the way, you must have learned that DW liking the floor plan is critical to fulfilling your dream. Sounds like you "nailed it" with your new Thor Ace. Nothing left to do but fuel up the rig and start making happy memories.

It's been said that, "if DW isn't happy, then NOONE is happy". Not by me of course....

We were actually at the dealership to look at the WBO Brave 27 footer. I asked the sales guy to show us everything under 32feet in the lot (so it would fit our driveway) and then my wife, to my surprise, started critiquiing the floor plans as we went through. My requirements were: under 32', walk-around bed, decent lounge area. Hers ended up being: Walk around bed, oven with the stove, couch across from dinette, not the couch next to dinette and shower in the bathroom, NOT across from it. When we stepped into the 29.2 ACE, she said, "This makes sense", THEN told the sales person we were 'Really serious"....I thought we were just looking.

We went to a local RV show, saw nothing she liked better, then went back to the dealership, got a good deal, and THEN she said she wanted to order a "fresh" one (there were 3 on the lot) with the cherry interior and the little bit of blue in the exterior stripe (they did not have that combo). 6 weeks later it arrived and we drove it home.

...go figure.
