I'm the new guy here, having registered just a couple of days ago.
I, or I should say, my beautiful bride of 35 years and I, own a 2001, 31' Winnebago Class "C"... with a grand total of just a little over 8,000 miles on it. It's our second motorhome, the first being a '78 Jamboree 26 footer, we bought to get our RVing feet wet.
We, or in this case, I should say "I", also own a 21' Carrera daycruiser we pull behind our rig. We got into RVing in order to combine boating and "camping" on the Colorado River, Lake Mohave and Lake Mead.
Life happens as they say, and shortly after buying the rig, medical problems reared their ugly, little, pointed heads and I wasn't able to pursue either form of recreation for the next several years.
Anyway, that was then... this is now, and we've just returned from our first outing, a 1,300 mile trip to Yosemite and back. The motorhome required some catching up on "deferred" maintenance, 6 new tires, a new battery... and, a brand new microwave (can't leave home without one).
I don't know whether we were the beneficiaries of dumb luck or comprehensive, pre-trip planning and preparation, but absolutely NOTHING went wrong... unless you consider my wandering into a patch of poison oak and 37,000 mosquito bites, as malfunctions. I suppose they were, but that's of the owner/operator, not of the rig.
Anyway, thanks for havin' me/us... I hope to learn from and contribute to the forum.
BTW, here's a photo of our mobile mansion. It ain't fancy, but it works for us... at least until I can talk the wife into a big, ol' diesel pusher (lol)
