Greetings from a New Member from Southern New Jersey

Hello all! I am new to Rving. Got tired of driving past my local dealers lot and seeing all of these beautiful big rigs and decided to stop in just to see what was going on. They treated me like an old friend and gave me the full tour of all the different rigs on the lot. Totally not what I expected and got hooked! Started doing all kinds of research of what's involved, technical issues, MH companies, etc. That's how I found iRV2. You all have been a wealth of information. Thank you!!

After all of the research, looking around at the A.C. RV show and sitting in and checking out quite a few MH's, I feel I have focus my search down to going with an Entegra. Seems to have the best quality/cost ratio and they are just plain gorgeous. Setting my sights on an Anthem 44B. My local dealer has let me know they have a new one due in May and wants me to come kick the tires to make sure of my choice. I plan on taking them up on it and grilling them heavily on details. So please keep the honest flow of information coming. You all have no idea how much you have aided me so far! Still keeping an open mind but I think the direction is pretty clear. Now just have to make it work.

My best to you all! Safe travels!

Thanks, John! Once you start to get past the information overload the search is really kind of fun. Can't wait for my local dealer to get the Anthem 44B Midnight Illusion they have on order for inventory. I'd like to give it a good once over as that has become my target coach. Want to see if it is everything my research has indicated it should be. We'll see.

Again, thanks for the welcome!

Welcome to the crew. We, too, have learned a lot here at irv2. Spent a year looking and bought our motorhome in late February. Wish you the best in making the big's just a small investment....right?

All, thank you very much for your hospitality and kindness. There really is a lot to learn and to be brought up to speed on. But the process really is kind of fun! I look forward to continuing to learn from your shared experiences and advice, so please keep it coming! And yes, Hudgens, It is just a small investment!!! I guess all things are still relative!!! But all the best on your recent acquisition and safe travels. Hope to be joining you sooner or later.
