basic info / sticky

Friends,

Can anyone direct me to a sticky or basic info link so I can learn about RVing? I'll have a 2016 Tundra 4x4 soon but am also interested in RVs that are "self contained" / drive-able. Just trying to get started learning.

Thanks!

Joe

Joe I'm afraid there is no sticky for all of the basics.

Each type of unit has all it own pros and cons depending on what type of traveling and living on the road one plans to do.

I am hoping this will not deter you in you quest for knowledge here.
Just have to start reading.

Hi Joe



Glad to have you here in the forum with us. You're gonna like it here.

Everyone start out not knowing anything about RVing. Thanks to this forum there is a lot of knowledge people are willing to share. All you have to do is start asking the questions. There are no stupid questions so just start asking.

Happy Trails!!!

Remember it's all about the floor plan. Decide what layout and what features you want and stick to it until you find what you absolutely want.

Welcome to the forum. Lots of info here for you to read up on. Visit as many dealers as you can to get some ideas as well as an RV show if one in your area. Most important thing is floorplan as you have to live in it. Second for us was build quality as this can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. It is a learning process and do not be surprised if it takes a bit of time. But it will be time well spent.

Mekanic - thanks, I've definitely got some reading to do!

TonyDi - thanks for the welcome!

Bahamaniac - that's great info. We haven't even talked about floor plans.

momdoc - thanks for the +1 about floor plans

As others have stated, iRV2 doesn't have anything so all inclusive. You might try Googling RV'ing for beginners or RV 101 & see what pops up. I'm sure there are articles & YouTube videos out there that'll go over the basics.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
