new RVer from SoCal

new to the sport/lifestyle. just bought a 2018 Winnebago Vista.

so far, three trips couple days each to nearby beaches to just get used to how it works and try to figure out what i need. been to numerous sites that have been very helpful helping develop awareness, but am still unsure about much of what i can expect and may have to do, primarily mechanical, upkeep, maintenance, electrical, etc.

our interests lie mostly in visiting national/state parks, BLM sites, venues less developed for nature walks, photography, historical site visits, though have interest in seeing what more commercial sites have to offer.

researching towing a civic hatchback standard transmission. wrote to honda and they 'don't recommend' towing it, but didn't go into detail about what detrimental effects doing so might have. researching for more info.

that's it for now. hope we can enjoy it ass much you folks seem to.

tks, gaf

Welcome and congrats on the new rig.

You are joining a good group of folks here with good info to share.

If you do a Google search on cars that can be towed behind a MH you will find some pretty good info on toads.

Enjoy the adventure.

Honda has gotten pretty closed about towing their cars since around 2004. You will need to find a baseplate to fit your car or have one made which may not be easy to do.

Glad to have you here. There is one place which seems like a great source for getting towing questions answered:
Towing – Remco

Give them a call, they'll put you on the right track.

Good luck.
