Welcome to the RV world! We just got our first rig in May so I share your enthusiasm! We've done a couple of extended weekend outings and have driven it a little over a thousand miles so far. The thing I have learned so far is that no matter how many years you research and read about the RV lifestyle (about 3 yrs. for us), it is totally different once you own a rig. I have learned so much in the past 3 months and a lot of it has come from this forum. There are so many nice folks here that are so willing to share their knowledge and experience. Make sure you have a notebook on board to write down your questions as they arise (believe me they will!) and post them on this forum and you WILL get answers and opinions! We started two lists right away, a need list and a want list. The "want" list will have to wait for now, but we figure that as we gain experience, things will sort themselves out in time.
Again, welcome and congratulations on your first rig, and a nice one too!
