New from Michigan

Hello Everyone,
Signed up about 3 weeks ago. Retiring in January and looking for our 1st motorhome.
Traveled much of the country as a young person in a company owned Bluebird Wander Lodge many-many years ago. Looking forward to new road trips with time to enjoy what this great country has to offer.
Lots of information and much to be learned at this site.
Safe travels to all!

Rick & Sue,

Check out (Atkin's RV) in Flint MI. They have a Bluebird for sale right now. It will be the second one they have had for sale this summer. May not be too far of a drive for you. I live about 1/2 hr from there.

Welcome to the forum. There is a lot to learn here. I started here last summer roughly and have since then bought a MH. (MH motorhome) Advice given to us was to go to RV shows, dealerships, and spend time walking inside new and used rigs and seeing what you both absolutely need and what you want or would like to have. Find a floor plan you like and ditch the salesman and sit for a while and see if you could really spend some time there.

Lot of threads here that will give you a great education so you will make a good decision. I hope you find the rig you want and enjoy this lifestyle.

Love the sunshine and warmer weather!
