New and wondering if we belong

Hi Everyone I feel out of our league we just bought a 2012 15' Jayco my husband and I are testing the waters so to speak we love fishing and thought a travel trailer would be helpful. maybe this sight is more for the big bus type RVers. Mind you I have been reading up on how to get black streaks off awnings and some great recipes on this sight Just not sure if we should be on this sight or maybe there is another more suited for the occasional, smaller Rver Thanks if you can straighten me out. Sincerely Fishing Gran

Please feel free to stay. I read most of the threads for potential conversation use. I've been able to offer help or advice to a few of my co-workers from what I've learned here.
Most cleaning, repair, maintenance, etc. is the same for all RV types - even popups!
There are only a few brands of appliance makers, frame builders, axle/suspension makers, etc.
Check out a Jayco forum or two too.
I'm still active on a popup forum.

There is a Forum for Travel Trailers on this site. However, many of the systems and procedures are the same or similar. You may think it's the big buses forum but what you are seeing is all the retired guys with lots of time on their hands posting (LOL)

Stick around, you will find a lot of interesting stuff related to your situation as well as the Camping/RVing life in general.

This along with a lot of support!

Hi Gran, welcome to the forum. If you're still breathing and have or interested in any form of camping or rv unit, then you belong. Bring you fishing gear and join us next week on the Tombigbee/Black Warrior River at Service COE in Alabama. Up from a tent, my first RV was a 15' Scotty with a small ice box (the kind you had to put ice in to cool it) and no bathroom. It was a great little trailer.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Welcome Fishing Gran to irv2.
Just so you do not feel out of place I will place you here.
You will find that some of us started just as you but as you may find moving up is not that bad in a few years.
The link will cover all types of trailers and has good information for any type.
So enjoy the forums and do post often I'm sure you have info we need for the fishing part of the game.
