New to RVing and MH in New Mexico

We are first time RVers and just purchased a Coachmen Concord 300TS. Feeling very overwhelmed but excited at the same time. We don't pick up our MH until mid-April. Just trying to learn as much as I can about everything before picking this unit up and then having to turn around and drive 600 miles back home. Any advice/tips would be greatly appreciated.

Glad to have you here with us. Congratulations on your new RV.

Take your time, there's no hurry. Make up checklists for getting underway, setting up camp, breaking camp etc. Take lots of notes when you take delivery. Things are quickly forgetten.

Ask for help here when you need it.

Best of luck and Happy Trails!!!!

Welcome aboard...and congratulations on your new coach. You've come to the right place to prepare you for the next step. I've learned so much here as we did our research for our coach. Beyond that I've learned plenty about what to do when unexpected things occur, what is a good thing (air bad thing) to purchase. We've started accumulating (and avoiding) gadgets for the coach. I've also learned to relax (we'll sort of) and enjoy this process. Most importantly however is that I learned that there is a very supportive and knowledgeable group of individuals on this forum.

Enjoy the journey, make lots of happy memories, and of course ... Share some pictures and stories with us.
