New to iRV2

My wife and I would like to tour the country in a few years and think that doing it in some sort of a RV would be the way to go. We know nothing or very little about the RV life. We want to start getting information on the options that are available to us. We are thinking that this site would be a good place to get some info.

The RV lifestyle is the way to go. Always sleeping in your own bed. Only eating "out", when it is convenient. Relaxing , sitting by the campfire, meeting other Rv'ers, listening to their stories. And I mean they have "stories", as you will too. We have traveled all across America. Our trips , usually 4 to 6 weeks at a time, cost us about $90.00 a day, including gas, camp fees, souvenirs, eating out, admissions, grocery, and supplies. AND, we go where we want, when we want, [weather dependent!], and hope to keep doing so as long as the "health" lets us. It's just a GOOD decision. You won't regret it.

You've come to a great place for RVers. If you have any RV shows in your area it is well worth the time. You will see many different models and it will help you decide whether you need a trailer or motorhome. Explore the differences, decide what is best for you, and you will find yourself in a lifestyle you will love.

If there aren't any RV shows near you, go to as many different RV dealers as you can and make comparisons

Good luck!!
