Cool Howdy from Central VA

Greetings all,

I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and say hello. My name is Kenny, wife is Monica and the little furry Schnoodle is Sadie. We're empty nesters, late 50's (ish) and recently purchased a used 35' Keystone Montana. She needs a little work (unfortunately a few things that went unnoticed when I did the inspection), but can't wait till the weather breaks so I can get them attended to. Sold my beloved F150, bought a 06 F350 Dually and have been researching the web like a madman to find a decent hitch. Replied to a long one here regarding the Anderson Ultimate hitch that caught my eye. Which is also why I joined.

Both my wife and I have seen a fair amount of Europe, but not as much of the states (at least for me as an adult), we thought it's about time to stop talking and start doing. Folks live in NM, friend or two down further south, sister way up north, etc.

Any rate, considering I'm a greenhorn, expect lots of questions. It's always good to talk to folks that have "been there, done that".


Kenny, Monica and Sadie

Howdy from Northern VA! Welcome to IRV2.

Regarding a hitch, I've always had very good luck with B&W hitches and accessories. Their gear is made in the USA, which makes the a first choice in my book. Happy travels!
