Smile New RVers

Well we did it. Finally decided to go for it and settled on a 2003 Itasca Sunrise 32V. Very excited but also nervous as this is our first ever RV. Lots of questions at this point but hopefully most of them will be answered on our walk through. Any suggestions you have for new travelers would be appreciated.

Make your first trip close to home.....you will figure out what you need...what you must have and what is nice to have after a couple of trips. Otherwise....head out and enjoy yourselves.......I learned so much just by asking campers around me and this forum...Its a lot of fun to learn and just getting out there...

You will need a second set of everything to minimize packing and unpacking for each trip. Most homes have a old set of dishes, pots pans, sheets, towels around. load them up and leave them in the coach.
