Greetings from SoCal

Hello all. My wife, daughter and I are new to Rving. Caught the bug on a twelve day trip last summer in a rental and hae been lurking and researching since. We are taking delivery of our Thor ACE 30.1 this Saturday and plan to spend the next couple of weekends outfitting it and short day trips to the beach and mountains.

Looking forward to learning from you all at this site!

Hi PVA, welcome to IRV2. There is nothing better than taking the family camping. Hope you enjoy your new Thor and the adventures you will have with your family. Safe travels.

Hello, fellow SoCaler!

Which specific location(s) are you thinking of going first?

Thanks for all of the kind words! We are in the Santa Clarita area of Northern Los Angeles County. We are a mile from the local Camping World, so if any one is heading up or down the 5 and planning a stop there (or encounters an unexpected reason for a stop there!) let us know and we can direct you to all of the best our town has to offer!

We signed papers and finalized insurance yesterday to take delivery tomorrow! First trip will likely be a quick shakedown drive to Ventura for the day next weekend. We'll be outfitting this next week.

Have a great weekend all!
