New to it all

Hi All, I retired recently. We (my wife and I) had a trip up to NY/NJ to visit family in our car with our standard poodle and were cramped as could be. Dragging stuff in and out of hotels was a pain. The next thing you know, we were looking at RV's, small at first, and through much research and discussion, ended up with a 2012 Fleetwood Bounder 33c! So now we are planning a trip to North Carolina first for driving lessons. We expect to be on this forum a lot, as everything is new to us. We've already gotten some really good info. We hope that in the future we can contribute as well!

Welcome to the Forums and the RV Lifestyle!

We are certain you will enjoy your RV MUCH more than dragging suitcases into places used by other people and sleeping in a bed that was slept in by WHO last night?

Thanks everyone! We are looking forward to lots of miles in the Bounder. This June we set off for CO, UT, NV, CA, OR, WA, Canada and then back to Atlanta. Maybe 2 to 3 months if all goes well
