Is this the Roman Forum? Just kidding...

We aren't new to RV'n but we just upgraded. Having had a popup trailer, two travel trailers, then an older Winnie Brave Class A then an older DP, we decided (for a bunch of reasons) to go to a diesel pickemuptruck and a new Jayco Eagle 5vr.

I took some pics of the truck but not of the trailer and truck hooked, yet. We've been on a couple of short shakedowns with the 5vr and have a week long trip planned in the near future. For now, our "fixit" list on the 5vr is very short! Hopefully it stays that way despite the excellent service we received during our PDI and subsequent small fixes from the dealer.

I'll post a pic of the truck and a webpic of the trailer for now, then update both with a hooked up pic of the entire rig later.

Looking forward to learning more about RV's here and helping where I can!

Welcome aboard iRV2. Glad you got the picture posting figured out.

Hope to see you posting frequently. Be sure to check out all the forum sections but especially the catagories pertaining to your new fifth wheel.

Maddog, nice rig. I have one question for you. What are you doing letting it set and just taking pictures? It should be in a campground with you sitting under the awning enjoying life.

Hiya, TX. Thanks for the reply. We haven't just been sitting around lookin' at it...much. We just got it, have had it out twice for some short shakedowns, and have a week long outing planned. Our first long trip will be about 2 wks down to New Mexico to visit family.

We averaged at least 2 long weekends a month with our other rigs and will keep to that same schedule for now. I'm still part of Corporate America for about 3 - 1/2 yrs until my planned retirement at 57. Then, the sky's the limit and I can't wait.

I have some other interests, pics of which I've attached here. They tend to keep me busy....lololol
