just bought a 2008 Jayco Greyhawk Sport. Very excited to be joining the RV world. This has been my goal for 10 years - and here I am. But frankly, I know nothing and I'm scared senseless.

Needless to say there really is nothing to be afraid of, being respectful of it is another thing all together.

Welcome, I would start by telling folks a little more about which unit you bought, a little history where it came from and did you buy it from a Private party or a dealer? How Many Miles are on it and do you have all the service records.

What are your plans for the MH, short trips, long trips? How many people going to use it? Where do you want to go?

Finally, what are your concerns.... no question is to small... ask away there are folks that have dealt with about every aspect of RVing here and are very willing to help..

Jayco makes a great product... the key is keeping it maintained correctly don't overload it when packing and it will last you years... Good Luck
