New to class A

Hello all,
Just bought our first class A yesterday. 2000 Damon Challenger 35'. Not new of course but in awesome condition. Been campin off & on for over 30 yr. Started with 22' TT, then 25' Class C, Now the big one! Don't even have it home yet. Plan to get it in 2-3 days. Can't camp around here (iowa) in 20 degree weather. Lots of info here. Will check in often.

Sounds like you picked out a good one. That suggestion to "driveway" camp for a night is a good one. See if furnace, fridge, water heater, etc, all perform as they should. Remember, the rear "overhang" on a class A is a bit longer then you are use to, so keep that in mind on your "turns".

Sounds like you made a good choice, and you picked a good site. You will find just about any answers you have. Travel safe and good luck from Georgia.
