Look Out! It's An RV Noob!


My name is Michael and I am an RV Noob. I've never owned one but I did rent one once.

My wife and I have decided to purchase a fifth wheel as, apparently, she's tired of tent camping.

We do have a nice 3/4T diesel pickup that allows us some flexibility on what we can tow and how much gear can go with us.

I am looking forward to reading and learning here at irv2.com. I'll try not to ask too many noob questions.

I used an F250 for a long time. You can do a lot with them. Don't worry about asking noob questions. That's what forums are for. Besides, if we kicked people out for asking noob questions, nobody would be here. We all started knowing nothing about RVs. There's no shame in being the new guy.

Welcome to the forum Michael . We started out tenting , then a trailer , small class C motorhome and now a 32' Class A motorhome. We do a lot of boondocking , so the class A works great with lots of storage and large tanks.
