New to the RV world

Hi to Everyone

About a year ago I bought a 2001 Dutch Star V10 Newmar, I have never owned a RV or Camper and I don't much care for camping. This 15 years old RV is amazing, I just spent 6 weeks living in it and driving it several thousand miles pulling a jeep. It is so well made everything works and is easy to maintain. Sure I envy you folks with those big DP tag axles custom paint jobs white leather seat. But this old faded Dutch Star goes everywhere it's only 35 feet long and one slide, get about 8 miles to the gallon has a shower, 2 TV's AC and heat, great stove, Microwave,and frig. The only problem is me I break more things than fix them, luckly there are always RVer willing to help and all tell stories on stupid things they tried or did too. I think I'm going to enjoy this for next several years. This ain't camping.

It's not camping - it's mobile living!! Enjoy it. Much more comfortable and easier to deal with than our tents. ;-)

Welcome to the forum!

It's often called "Glamping" because it is glamorous camping. Works for me, I love Glamping!!!!!
Love the sunshine and warmer weather!
