Newbies with lots of questions

We promise, this should be, I think, our last post today, but as suggested by our other posts today we have lots of questions we need to address before we take delivery. Today's posts dealt with things like registration and garaging, coach insurance, extended warranties, even driving schools. As newbies, what other topics do we need to address and resolve before we begin our new full-timing life style?

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

It sounds as though you may have asked other questions! I suggest that you may be able to do some of your research by using this forum's search section and then expanding your questions from there. Many of the questions that you have will have been asked before. They may have formed the question differently than you will but may be informative as well.

Finance would be an appropriate topic if you go full timing.

Unless you are Bill Gates kids, I would suggest that you work out a budget that will ensure that you can afford the full-time life style. If you find your self out of money 5 years down the road, full-timing could prove to be less desirable.

Good luck to you

Let me take "driving course" of of your question list. The answer is yes, absolutely. Whether it is a simple one day course like that offered at Lazy Days or a two day course offerd by private companies. I've seen some crazy ideas on how some people back there coaches in, usually accompanied by unintelligible arm waving and yelling. It is sort of entertaining though.
Learn to to do it right, take a course.

First, welcome to this dynamic way of life- you'll find it rewarding and enlightening. Second, I'd consider getting some dvd's put together by someone with a lot of rv'ing experience. That way, you won't have to ask yourself "What have I forgotten...or what else should I ask?" Here is a suggestion, and over many years, I've found them trustworthy:

RV Education 101 - videos, DVDs, books, tips and information for RVers

P.S. Lots of free info on his site as well.
