First Time RVer, First RV purchase. Purchased a 2006 Safari Simba, 36' Class A. Sold the house and headed west from Charleston SC on Dec 1. We are trying the full-time RV lifestyle for awhile. We landed in Brenda, AZ for the next couple of months while we check out Quartzsite (we are rock people). Then on to Tucson and then slowly make our way to the northwest and back to the Midwest. We have already had a number of issues with the rig, but it is part of the journey. Looking forward to being part of this community.

Welcome to IRV2....good luck with your adventure. Do you have emergency roadside service? For new full timers that might help you.

Safe and Happy Travels.

Thanks! Been living my dream for almost 2 years! Working on seeing the world! Trying anyway.
From Michigan. I have to go back about ever 6 weeks or so ( duty calls ,& visit my family). Only stay for a few days. Then, as my favorite song is called "Life is a Highway", I want to drive it all night long!! :-) :-)
Next stop, Mayo Clinic, in Jackson ville. Looking for a nice place to put my camper. (I have a Holiday Rambler) I don't take it to Michigan anymore, at least during winter. The aqua hot system, etc., does NOT like the cold. Nor do I like the cost of winterizing.
Anyway, thanks for the welcome.
Any suggestions for Jacksonville, please let me know. Thank you and remember "Life is a Highway" Got to Love it!!
