Hello from CA

We are just starting out in the RV crowd and know nothing. We purchased a Prevost H3-45 Vantare Conversion. The good thing is it's easier to drive then my wifes BMW. The bad is that all the various systems can be a little intimidating but the RV is a great way to get from point A - B. Thanks to the iRV2 and Roger Berke for some good help. Marv & Rebecca

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new rig! You sure picked a good one for your first RV.

We used to be neighbors. We sold our home in Granite Bay a year ago after 25 years and are now full timing... although currently back in Roseville for Dr appts, etc before we head south in a couple of weeks.

I think you'll find a great deal of help available for you here so feel free to ask away.

Welcome neighbor...just down the road in Manteca. If you need info on a few GOOD places to have work done on your coach let me know. (and a few places to stay away). We spend a total of about 150 days each year in the M/H.

Welcome aboard Schuh. I'm only sorry you had to start your RV adventures in such a low end rig. I'm sure it can't compare to the JC Penny 'end of season special' tent we purchased, 36 years ago, for $19, but we each have our cross to bear.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, someone here has 'been there, done that', and don't be shy about telling us of your initial RV adventures and discoveries either. Most of us can relate and will get a kick out of your stories.

OH, and post some photos. We'd all like to see the new mobil digs.

Happy Trails...
