Smile Our First!!

Nearing retirement, my wife and I decided to see the US rather than travel overseas. We just took delivery of our first, and probably at our age, last motorhome, a Newmar Dutch Star 4369. Can't wait to get going and, in that regard, we would welcome any advice on toads. I have a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid that supposedly can be flat towed. Any experiences with that vehicle would be welcome, as would advice concerning any other vehicle experience! Hope to see you on the road!

Gorgeous coach! Was recently looking at a 2014 Dutch Star 43xx....I'm jealous Congratulations on your purchase and many happy miles. No comment on the toad, but I'm very happy with Roadmaster towing bar and my SMI brake.

RWray, beautiful coach! I agree on seeing the USA...but don't forget about traveling north to Canada. So much to see in these two beautiful countries.
