Hi. I am new here. We dont have an rv yet but are looking to buy one next spring. I am here looking for info from the pros. I figure there is no better place to get info then from the experienced. We have been looking at rv's for a year but now is the time for the research. Hope you folks dont mind if I just read along for a while then start asking some questions later... and I do have a lot of them! Thanks for having me along!

Welcome to IRV2! What kind of RV'er do you want to be? A class A, B or C? A Pop-up, Travel Trailer, Slide-in or 5th wheel? Are you planning on buying new or used, or maybe rent a few different types of RV's to get your feet wet? What part of the country do you live in, so that people who are RV'ers can point you to local Dealers, campgrounds, etc. These are just a few questions you might want to put answers to in your profile so the good folks here on IRV2 can better help you.

Best to you and good luck in your new endeavor! - Glenn

Glad to have you here. Tell us a little about the size and type you are considering and why that type. You will sure get some opinions...One thing for sure about this group...everyone has one (an opinion).

Really a lot of knowledgeable people and everyone loves to help.

You can also go to MY PROFILE and enter a signature with something like the area that you live or what ever.

Thanks for the replies. Will put this info here for now and start a new post in the correct place later. We are looking for a 17-19 ft. TT either light weight or ultra light. Will mostly be used as a starter for us. Plan on buying larger in several years (retirement). Will mostly be used as a weekend getaway to local campgrounds and ocasional short trip. Not looking to put a fortune into this because it is only a starter for us. I have a lot of "wants" but I am here to figure out the "needs". Thanks again!
