Hello

Brand new RVer here. Wife and I have never had an RV, or camper trailer before. Took the plunge, jumped in with both feet and should be mobile early next week, looking forward and will probably have lots of questions, lol

Hi Steve, welcome to the forum. Yes, inquiring minds want to know. Usually even if it's none of our business.

Its a new to us Tiffin Phaeton, picking it up next week, can't wait. Putting a tow bracket on our vehicle tomorrow so we can tow it as we learn to drive the new rig, it's been a hectic few days of trying to line everything up and hopefully things go smoothly. I don't know which of us is more excited, I think our adult kids are in shock, lol. Now they want to know what we are up to next

Sounds like your going to enjoy yourselves. I don't think you'll regret that you took the plunge. Great people here if you should ever need any help. Good luck and safe trouble free miles. Make some memories. Welcome to the group.

I remember the shocked expression when we showed our adult daughters our coach for the first time. It went something like this.."gee Dad, what is it with you and Mom. First I move out and you get satellite TV for the first time, then sis moves out and you get this humongous house on wheels!" Then without taking a breath it was "where are we going on our first trip?"

Welcome. We are also newbies. We recently purchased a travel trailer. We're excited about going out on our first trip next weekend.
