Hello iRv2 community. We are not new to motor homing but are new to this site. We've been camping for years and recently upgraded to a 2003 Monaco Dynasty - Baroness (40 foot) from a 1991 Allegro (31 foot). Besides the length adjustment, this coach has so many other bells and whistles that we need to learn how to use. Getting a used coach also comes with it's own issues - like why the tag axel won't come up or how to program the RC7GS remote generator, etc.

Also looking at a Ford Focus as a toad. Want an automatic with ability to tow with all four wheels down.

We've been 'on the road' for over two years now. It wasn't our original plan to become full timers when we left Alaska in 2012 but it sure has been fun and interesting.

We are Workampers and also belong to Good Sam. I'm currently researching warm weather workamper opportunities beginning in November. Also looking forward to meeting up with you.

Hi Larry and Patty!

We are new to the Forum as well (but RV'ers for many years)

Welcome folks, we travel with friends who have a 03 Dynasty. They bought it new, and it has been a great coach for them. Enjoy.

Hi Larry & Patty

Glad to have you here with us. It's amazing how a small step (leaving AK) becomes a big step (full timing).

Best of luck and Happy Trails!!!
