First, just do it. Understand that the RV is like a house and a car. Both will need maintenance and repairs while you are living in it. So, don't let that frustrate you, it can be a pain.

As some others have said, figure out how many miles a day you want to drive, and how many nights minimum you want to stay in each stop. We use a 4-3-2 travel guide, that is get there by 4pm, drive around 300 miles each day, and stay at least 2 nights at each stop. Others use 2-2-2 or whatever fits their preferences. Then take a look at your route and figure out where you want to stop longer and estimate how long a trip you want to take. 3-4 months might not be enough time, we just took 3 months just to do the west coast from The San Juan Islands to San Diego. But that's us. We discovered we like to stay a bit and get to know where we are, and see as much as we can.

Have Fun

IF the tires are not new change them all out. Have the brakes looked at/repaired. flush the brake fluid. flush the transmission fluid. install all new hoses and belts. change the oil. you should be good to go.
