Welcome to the forum! Congrats on the new RV. I wish we had done what you are doing. We didn't start RV'ing until the kids were grown. You will have a lot of wonderful memories with them

We bought our first motorhome in 1974. We had two daughters 7 and 3. Traveling in a car was miserable, Traveling in the motorhome was heaven. We would go to K-Mart and buy activity books (age app. connect the dots, maze, etc.) to keep them from being bored on the road. On long trips, we would put them to bed at night and continue to drive until late. At times we would get up in the mourning and start driving and pull over when they woke up and have breakfast. I hope you enjoy yours as much as we did.

Well, I picked it up and drove from Long Island NY back to State College PA. Front end could prob use heavier shocks and it ran much better after I used up all the stabilized fuel and put fresh in. Dash is squeaky and needs tightened. Brakes were already updates on the WH chassis. 1st trip made without incident, however I did need to pull over and tighten the outside mirrors with an Allen wrench. Worked fine afterward.

Enjoy your new MH. Our kids are now 31 and 33 but they started camping when they were 3 and 5, They still talk about all the good times they had camping and the oldest even has a small class C that they enjoy.
