Newbie from upstate NY

Like many others before me I have been lurking around this forum getting an education, and we have finally made our decision and are jumping in with both feet by buying a new VENTANA 4375. We Fly out to Minnesota next week to pick it up and make the drive home. A little intimated by a 1200 mile maiden voyage, but i'm sure we will do just fine. Thanks for all the great advice we have gotten

If you have enough time it might be wise to camp the first night near the place you are getting the RV from.That will give you a chance to be sure everything is working before you get too distance between you and the dealer.

Well it has been a long day of getting acquainted with our new Ventana, and to be honest we are exhausted but excited. Staying overnight here and then head back home mid morning

Nice looking coach, we also live in upstate New York, and made the trip out to Minnesota this past summer. Try to go around Chicago on your way home. We went thru it on the way out 40 foot and towing but went around on the way back. Good luck and travel safe.

Welcome and congrats. Watch the weather, big storm tonight but should stay south of your route and us in general. We are out of here a week form tomorrow for Florida why don't you hang a hard right on Rt. 75 and head on down. Use care and enjoy.

Really a great looking rig. I know you will never regret getting it. Looking at the picture, I must admit that I'm a little jealous.
Enjoy your new toy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
