Happy Holidays to my new RV friends

Merry Christmas from Alaska. After being boaters for the past 25 years, we switched lifestyles & bought our first motor home this fall. Her name is Dutchess & she is a Newmar Dutch Star, 38 ft. diesel pusher. We only got in 2 trips before winter arrived so we have tons of stuff to learn from all of you.

Welcome, from the warm and sunny South! Unlike boating which is that big black home you throw money into, RVing is the big bright hole you throw money into. Not really, but the gadgets and bling do tend to catch your attention and wallet.

Good to have you here, hope your Winter is mild and warm and you can get on the road in the spring. RVing for many here is not about the destination, but about the journey. May you have many enjoyable journeys.

Welcome aboard. You need to move the coach to Texas and enjoy it a bit.
