Smile The new guy

Hello everyone. I am new to RVing. I'm being medically retired from the military. My wife and I are seriously exploring full-timing. We've missed many holidays, birthdays, special events, etc. with our families and looking to split our time between mine and hers and spend our winters in the warm weather.

We have two dogs, a German Shepherd and a Rottie, both are rescues and pushovers for lots of attention. Neither of us have children at home.

I hope to learn a lot from this site before I purchase our new home. I'll probably ask a few questions here and there, but I'm planning on reading most of the posts to pick up on lots of info.

Hey man.. thanks for your service..

Explore the boards, ask questions.. and do as many walktrhoughs as you possibly can. Your first RV will likely not be your last. The first one is kinda like a first date. As you gain experience.. you'll find what works best for your style of life.. It ain't all glitz that makes the RV a home..
