Smile Hello from a newbie

My wife and I are getting within a year of retirement and we have just started looking at RV's.
We are hoping to purchase a used (2000 or later) Class A 35 - 40 ft. There is so much to learn about these things and so many questions that I have before I jump in, so please help me learn so I can make the right decision in my purchase.

Welcome to irv2 and remember this, the only dumb questions are the ones you didn't as so ask away and I know for sure there will be one of us that can find a logical answer for you. Enjoy your retirement when the grand day does arrive and happy camping.

Howdy and welcome! Have you ever RV'd before? I'd suggest renting an RV about the size you are considering to make sure it's something you will truly enjoy. Good luck and have fun.
