Hello new 2 IRV2

I have been reading this forum for a while now and I am very impressed on how much everyone is willing to help out.Its like its one big community.
We just bought a 1997 class C 30' Four Winds on Ford chassis with just 4800 miles.Inside and out is just like they day they made it. To tell the truth I was a little leary about the mileage.
I have worked in the automotive industry for the last 40 years and the last 10 of that for Ford Dealer Parts & Service. So once we started looking deeper into it , it really was a low mileage. I did however change all the fluids and filters and hoses and drive belt.
We took it out on a couple of short runs to check things out (120 mi and another 180 mi) everything went smoothly. I must say this the only way to go. We had TT and was always a chore to get ready to go,But now just hop in and go. The wife enjoys it more than me( which is a good thing).
Biggest problem is to figure out where to go next.

Thanks to every one for the warm welcome.
We'll keep the MH for a couple of years (maybe). And step up the A series. Looking forward to seeing the sites. Being from south Texas. There's a lot to see across this great nation and I really don't want to miss it. Wife really wants to go see Alaska and I aim to please.

Welcome to the forum. We seen a lot of class C's in Alaska when we took a two week cruise-tour there last year, great way to see the state when you have plenty of time. Of course some parts you can only see by boat or plane.
