Hi all!

Hello, My name is Dian and my husband and I are new to RVing. We just bought a 1988 Georgie Boy Encounter 36 ft and plan to live in it full time with our 2 daughters for a couple of years. It has great potential. But we have a long road ahead of us in the refurbishing and upkeep department. Unfortunately the guy we bought it from was not exactly truthful about the condition of things. When we looked at it and bought it it was at a primative camp ground. The generator circuit board was fried (one thing the guy was honest about anyway) and there was no water or propane in the tanks. So we had no way of checking things out thoroughly. But, we will get through as we always have.

Looking forward to learning about the whole rv thing and meeting some good people on here.
