Washington complete newbie

The rundown:
* Never hauled/drove or lived in an RV before
* Selling house and moving full-time to RV lifestyle
* Telework, so have options where I can park, as long as it's in WA
* Will either be buying a newer used truck & fiver OR MH and tow car
* Been doing research and learning from experienced RV'ers for a few years
* DIY'er with construction experience - independent streak
* New chapter in life, 6 years into widowhood

Smile Welcome

Welcome aboard Lefty from your Canadian neighbour. We love Washington. I have a nephew that is a chiropractor in Edmonds so we are there often.

Enjoy the forum...

Welcome to the forum Lefty, and all the best in this new chapter of your life. Sorry for your loss.

Reading the rest of your "rundown " I have to agree that you do have an independent streak. Pages are meant to be turned when transitioning to a new chapter.

After the correct RV configuration is settled upon, fuel up, and go make some memories!!!
