Old but new here

Just recently (3weeks) ago purchased a used 2001 FW Bounder and took very first trip in a motorhome as a driver or passenger. Went from Sun City Ca. to Mammoth and was really worried but everything went just fine. Except maybe was a little slow for others up and down Cajon Pass.
How long does it take to get used to it? I hope not too long as I waited until I was 76 to even start out.

Welcome! You echo my thoughts the first time I got behind the wheel! I am adjusting quickly.

Our first trip was unpleasant. We went to the eastern side of the Washington Cascades over the July 4th weekend. Th daytime high temp was over 100F and the CG was very crowded. We paid for two nights, but were so uncomfortable, we went home after the first one.

Our second trip was over a very soggy weekend in western WA. It wasn't until our third one that we figured out the nicer places to go, and to avoid weekends. Our procedure was to time our departure from home on Sunday, so we arrived at the CG jut as people were leaving to be back at work/school Monday morning.
