RVing? Why not... hello from WA State


Hoping to learn a lot from these forums. I bought a 2015 Ford F-350 and 2016 Denali 280lbs 5th wheel yesterday. I've never RVd before so this will be completely new.

During the walk through I learned about scary things such as grey water and black water. Who knew RVing involved hauling feces around? My wife and three kids (ages 9, 13, 15) are avid skiers and mountain bikers and we're hoping to use this for our trips.

I drove onto the highway and made the 100-mile trip home without hitting anything and was able to backup into the parking spot so I feel like there has been a small victory already.

Welcome. We too are new to this RVing. My husband and I decided to downsize and start living in a 26' 1990 Lynx. I am close to my work. And no yard work for my husband.
