New RV'ers in North Texas

We picked up our first RV on Valentine's Day this year; a Thor Challenger 37GT.

Our first time riding or driving an RV was when we drove it home from the dealer.

Lots of questions, doing lots of research. We feel like we're getting information from a fire hose!

We have only spent 2 nights in it so far and love it.

Great to have you aboard, now start planning trips, your first one should be to Branson, MO. Not to far from home and lots of Entertainment, hey just trying to promote the home state
Things may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but you will get as comfortable driving that rig as the family car.

Just remember it is a big heavy vehicle, plan your moves, drive way ahead of you, (Look Down the road). A big advantage of Class A's is visibility! Anticipate other drivers moves.

When making turns give yourself plenty of room, if you hit a curb with a rear dual, you could ruin a tire. Keep up on the maintenance and your coach should give you many years of great service.

Just some random thoughts from an old 18 wheeler pilot, amoung other things
Happy Trails
Jim

We have one short trip under our belt. We went about 250 miles to Big Spring and spent 2 nights to try it out. Life got in the way and we haven't been able to get back out. It's terrible when you're both retired but can't find the time to do what you want; things were wide open until we took delivery of our coach!

We have trips planned to Corpus Christi soon and the Northwest when it warms up just a little. We considered including the Oregon coast but the mountains are a little intimidating at our experience level. It's still on the list, it just won't be anytime soon.
