New To Forum, New MH Owner

We did it. After a long "search and seek" mission (6+months worth), my DH and I stepped out and bought (today) a VERY well kept 2004 Fleetwood Storm 34F. 27K miles, 270 hours on 5500 Onan Generator and very nice exterior (a bit of clear coat peel on front) and exceptional interior. It has the 3 slide outs (kitchen, dinette and bedroom).
This is a HUGE step for us and I have to admit we are a bit intimidated (not exactly sure why) by it's size and overall buying experience (such as a glutted market of everything imaginable and varying coach conditions).
Trust me when I say we spent HOURS doing our research, what-ifs, whys, why nots and it goes on and on. Tons of Youtube video viewings; from maintenance tips and hints (do's and dont's), to personalized upgrades.
I think we are so mentally exhausted from it all that we just want a quite glass (or 3 or 4 bottles) of wine and enjoy our thoughts.
We certainly look forward to this forum and <<finally>> being an owner.

Reading your posting sounds so similar. We will be bringing our first ever motorhome home tomorrow. It is a 2004 33 foot Newmar. A new stage in life. Enjoy each day !
