Retired First time motorhome owners

Hello to everyone from William and Brenda Elam from the great state of Mississippi. We are new to the motorhome world and are very excited to see the great USA. We purchase a 2016 Newmar Ventana on 12/29/2015 just in time for the new year. We’ve made a couple short trips so far trying to get a good handle on driving and figuring things out. We have had issues but managed to survive. Look forward to learning from the veterans of the site.

Welcome to the forum!
You've got some good free camping along the Natchez Trace. Slow driving and great scenery too.
Hope you enjoy your MH.
