New member AND new to RVing

I currently live in upstate South Carolina however, I have lived in a number of states throughout the US. I have never owned an RV before and am preparing to buy a very well used travel trailer. I had hoped to buy a Class A motorhome but there isn't any in my price range close by. In fact, I think South Carolina has the least used RV sales in any state! I will be living in it full time with my two Border Collies and cat.
I will probably have lots of questions. And look forward to all the advise!

Howdy and welcome aboard. Glad you joined us and hope you enjoy the site.

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.

A 35' travel trailer is pretty big, sure I've seen 38 and even 40 footers but on my $1500 MAX budget (including any supplies, fuel to pick it up etc.).....
Going to pick up the 1973 (one year older then I am) Impala in Alabama today. Leaving Seneca SC in about 45 min. Have to fill both gas tanks, clean the really dirty windshield, stop and get a fuse for the power point so I can plug in my GPS and get some breakfast. I also forgot to bring a water bowl for my dog so I need to find something that will work when I go to AutoZone for the fuse. THe lady said the trailer brake/lights was a 6 pin like mine but I think I will buy a 5 pin adapter... always good to have one on hand!
I will post pix of my rig on that thread After I get it!

Also new RVer

Hey Echo,
My wife and i have been RVers for a grand total of 3 days. We're from NY but I write this from a RV park in Monument valley UT as we drive our new rig home. We shopped nationwide and are happy to chat with you if you want to pick our brains on that experience.
Maybe we'll see you on the road one day.
