Newbie from N. Central Washington

Hey all,

Jerry & Kathy from East Wenatchee, WA. Just joined the RVer's world. Bought our first coach on Halloween and had it covered all winter. My wife laughed at me everyday as I dutifully walked over to the coach, peaked inside and putz around. Finally got the cover off and took it for a spin. Ready to go on a road trip. Being new to the RV world, I'm sure I'll have questions and want to know how this and that works.

Happy to be on the forum and looking for expertise from those who already enjoy the lifestyle.

All the best,

Hello and welcome to irv2! I'm relating to your post. We bought ours in December and have been making trips to our storage area to haul supplies, etc. Can't wait to take our first trip April 1 to a nearby Kentucky campground. It is about all I can think about.

Anyway, what are our plans for your first trip?

Hi Lisa,

We have a few short trips planned around the eastern Washington area starting the weekend of the 8th of April. We're still 5 yrs from retirement so it will be mostly weekenders for a while.

All the best,
You are in good hands here when you need to figure out what is going wrong.

We will be up your way in a few months. Have friends in Wenatchee we haven't seen in a while.

I can't say that I have experienced anticipation with RVing. Went full time when the rig was packed. Been on the road for 10 years now and I am still loving it. Hope you have great RVing experiences. So much to see. So little time.

Rick Y

PS: This is my third rig.
