Thanks for the help

Right now I am thanking you more knowledgeable R/Vers. With the information you provided. There is allot of good, free advice here.... I just keep in the back of my head "you get what you pay for". LOL So that being said I went and made the leap. Bought my first R/V today. It's a 28ft Holiday Rambler Atlantis. Note right now I am thanking you, If it is anything like buying a boat, I'll be hating you and soon.
She is at the dealer's Right now getting a bath and a few things repaired. Then I'll take final delivery.
I have officially joined the ranks of the R/V community. When we get more familiar with the unit we plan on seeing you out there.
One more question, in the boating world we referred to our boat as she. Is it the same for the land yachts.

Thanks again Guys

Congrats on your purchase!
RV's aren't a bad as boats (I have both), but they run a close second place.

Oh no, you didn't actually buy one did you???? We were kidding..............!!!!

And to keep her (it is a she) from being like a boat; don't drive it in the water.

That is free advice, and worth it.

Yes your MH will take some serious TLC to stay operating nicely for you.

The parts for our toilet are on the way, and I have new hinges for the bath door (unrelated incidents). At ten years and fifty thousand on the odometer not too bad , but repairs are part of the deal.

She needs care but less than most because I have maintained her along the way, my wife of course.

Welcome aboard, sincerely.

I wish I was warned ahead of time. I guess the good thing with a MH is you don't have to worry about the anchor dragging a three o'clock in the morning.
