new member, zero experience

Hi All,

I'm an old hand at technology but completely inexperienced in any and all things RV. So, I hope to learn a great deal from this superb forum!


PS - I'm career military and should be retired in 2020 or so.

Thanks for the warm welcome all!

JBDALHB - I think we're leaning towards a Type B or C but a tow-able / 5th wheel might be more affordable.

It's funny, the wife and I "agreed" years ago that it was silly for all of our older friends to have RVs. Now, we kind of like the idea!
