New Member and RV Owner in Minnesota

After 30 years of boating with a 40 footer on Lake Superior, we decided to expand our landlocked journeys while moving toward retirement. Just purchased a 2000 Fleetwood Discovery 36t, with 25,000 miles. Never owning an RV or trailer before, I was pretty firm on several points. Class A Diesel Pusher, Sleep 6, Air Ride on 22.5" wheels, center bathroom and a Side by Side refer.

Other than that, I am totally green with the RV world and lifestyle. Big boat experience I hope will help, but am counting on connecting with those real life experts on this website.

Thank you in advance,

Sam Schudi

Hi Sam

Glad to have you here with us. Knowing what to look for is dependent on how you will use the MH. All electric is nice. If you can give us a bit more info we'll try to help you.

Best of luck looking for your "land yacht'. Happy Trails!!!

Welcome aboard. All you need to do is push away from the dock...and enjoy the cruise! If you run into rough seas, ask the folks on this forum.
