New to Motorhomes and iRV2

Well, we sold our boat this spring and decided to try a motorhome for a nice change of pace. We found a gently used "06 Itasca that we think should serve us well for the next few years until retirement. Last motorhome I drove was my uncles brand new Winnebago in 1969...
Our daughter and her family live in Alaska and we can't think of a better way to get there than by motorhome! I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions so thanks in advance...

Welcome aboard! I'm sure you'll get way more satisfaction from your MH than a hole in the water to put money in. You'll meet some of the greatest folks in the world here and out in the wild blue yonder. Lots of folks with lots of experience to help you in any way. Enjoy!

Ron, welcome to the forum. We may be biased, but think you'll like the MH more than the boat....
