Hi from NH

Hi everyone.
I joined the forum to learn about RVing ( is that a word? ) . My wife and I are getting close to retirement and are considering trying rv camping. I think we might like to start small, say with a travel trailer. If we like it, maybe a class C.
I don't know anything about models, sizes, systems etc. and figure this is the place to find out.
David

Welcome to the Forums. I too am new to this but I have learned more than you can imagine about RV's here. Find RV dealers in you area and go there. Look at everything and you will start to form questions in your mind. Why is this? what is that? Who uses those? And on and on. You will be told that the hunt is fun don't rush it. They are right. I rushed it and bought when I thought I was ready but there was more I should have known first. I got luck and bought a nice used gas class A at a reasonable? Price but I now know that there are so many more choices, I could have waited and bought with more confidence. So ask questions, read relevant posts and happy hunting. I love it, I hope you do too.

Given what you posted I'd start with the C first.
