Jumped in with both feet

Well here we go. Taking delivery today of a new 2015 Dutch Star 4369.
First timers all around.
Hi all, setting up for retirement and this is our first step and its a big one. Delivery is today and am excited and nervous at the same time.
So many questions regarding the rv lifestyle, use and care of the coach and retirement in general, cant wait!.
Have my air endorsement, and im ready to go.
Thank you in advance for your knowledge and advise, I think we will need it.

Congrats on the new MH

Also on being able to retire. I was hoping to be there now, but got about 3 more years to go (2 if someone really pxxxx me off)

P.s. Don't forget some pictures!

Yes, it is a big step you have taken. Have patience, ask questions, keep your manuals handy, and have fun. You have a fantastic coach to learn and grow with. Enjoy!

Where did you purchase and take delivery? We were back at our dealer in Carthage today to get some warranty repairs and so one was taking delivery. Now I was wondering if that was you there.

If you are a complete newby to RVing, may I suggest you attend the international rally in Pueblo this fall. We attended several rallies when we first started. Best decision we ever made. As a Newmar owner, you will have a huge support group to ask questions of.

Fair winds and following seas.
