Red face Trial by fire

Well, have just signed to buy a 2005 class A Georgetown. Also ordered bunche$ of stuff to make the Honda towable, Base plate, tow bar, cables, wiring kits, etc. Spouse even bought toilet paper. Wow, that's committment.

Never drove one before so look for us along side the road heading to Florida.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new rig! Fun times ahead.
Just take your time and soon it'll all be second nature to you.

Trial by fire

Nope, never owned anything bigger than a minivan. Did have a boat once.

At this point we are clueless but optimistic. I'm just planning on taking it slow and easy until I get my "sea" legs.

Know what your saying bend302, our first trip will be Thanksgiving day. The roads should be empty but Sunday return will be a difference story coming threw Atlanta....taking DW deer hunting on our maiden voyage.

We did the same thing. Just have your wife ready to pry your fingers off of the steering wheel at the end of the first two days. After that, it's a piece of cake. Just plan on going no more than 300 miles per day and relax.

LOL about being on the side of the road! We are totally brand new, too; never even driven one except the test drive. We've wanted one for years and I figure worse case scenario, we can sell our rvand say we tried it.
Is your first trip really to fl? I think that will be our first trip too, right after christmas. Yay!! Can't wait!
Hey, maybe there really is a pact that one rv'ist will stop for another if on the roadside!

At least your wife has her priorities straight.

Welcome to the world of RVs, and the forum. I think you'll enjoy both. And I wish I had the potential of finding you along the road. Unfortunately, we're stuck here in WI, at least for one more winter.

Happy trails.
