Motorhome newbies

We're Rich and Joan Miller from Columbus, OH and just completed the paperwork trading in our truck and 5th wheel for a 2005 Travel Supreme motorhome. I've been retired for 2 years and my wife retired at the end of 2012 - so now we have some time and are looking forward to making the best of this rather large (for us) purchase. Lots of butterflies, lots of trepidation but hope to take a number of short trips and eventually hit the road to see some relatives in Montana. Looking forward to all the great info that can come from the members of this site.

Welcome! I was in Columbus on Friday for a meeting - went up on 33 and came back on 70/60 just to scope out campgrounds What a great location for lots of nearby RV'ing.

Your in good company on this site, everyone is very helpful and collectively have thousand of years of experiences and problem solving. I understand your concerns about something new, but I am reminded about something I read when I first got started. All ships are safe in harbor...but that's not what ships are built for! the same goes for RV'ers!

Hi Rich & Joan! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

Congrats on the new MH! We got our MH last year after pulling a 5er for 10 years. It was mind boggling at first, but now we love it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!
