Newbee from Tampa Bay

Hi folks. Debbie and I recently retired and have just crossed off one item on our bucket list and that was to cruise the intercoastal water way from our home to the Chesapeake Bay on our motor boat. We spent 8 months on the boat over a year and a half and loved it. We're now back home and after enjoying the boat this summer with the grand kids we'll sell the boat and start a new chapter in our life - RVing.

I've joined a couple of other forums but like iRV2 owners forum. I don't know which brand we will get, but I know where to go to get info. Looking forward to getting and sharing info.

I'm currently at MAFB and a little over a year into my full time first time RV life. I follow several forums and they have been very helpful, as well as blogs and YouTube channels.

Hi Tim and Debbie

Glad to have you here with us.

Sounds like a nice 8 month boating adventure. Now on to the RV world. You can start by going to the RV forums at the top of the page, You'll see different forums from most RV makers. Ask questions in there and you will get some good replies. It you have any large RV shows near you, or that you are able to travel to, go to them, you will see so much there and can compare them side by side.

Good luck with your search. Let us know when you decide.

Happy Trails!!!
