Welcome to the forum and to your future wonderful life of travelling! You're going to get some real good information from really experienced folks here!

Read a lot, and look at a lot of floor plans that'll meet your needs.

I'd also get on the roof and look for any past leaks. Check the the tires very close and replace if necessary!!

Best of luck into your new journey! Go to RV shows, take your time.
