Question New Member and New RVer

Hello Everyone

My wife and I just purchased our first Travel Trailer and are taking our first trip this year. We will be gone for a little over a month and hope that we will do fine sine it is all new for us!

If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated

Congrats. Enjoy. We are learning as we go. It's been trial and error for us. We just say "well, we won't do that again". My advice is read your manuals and ask questions. What kind, type did you get?

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new TT!

Hope you have a great trip. We found it more enjoyable to find a good spot and stay for several days and see the area. Coming home to your own bed each night is great after seeing the sights at each location.

Walmarts make a great one night stopover between destinations. Just check at customer service to see if they allow overnight parking before you get comfortable for the night.

Take your time, enjoy and be safe!

Glad to have you here with us.

Congratulations on your new TT. Good luck with it.

Make lists, things to bring, things to do when setting up, things to do when breaking camp etc. These will often prevent you from saying "Uh-Oh". Take some short trips to get a feel for your needs.

Happy Trails!!!
