Newbies from Iowa

My husband and I have just entered the world of RV ownership. We have never owned a camper or an RV before. We recently purchased a 1993 Coachmen Catalina 330SB. Our first big trip will be a quick one to attend our son's graduation from military training in San Angelo, Texas along with our daughter-in-law and our three beautiful granddaughters (4, 2 1/2 and 6 months). Wish us luck! I'm anxious to hear from those of you with lots of experience and hopefully we will discover some tips and tricks along the way that might be helpful to somebody else.

Welcome from just up the road in Minn. Be sure to check the RV over well before departing on your trip. Enjoy.
