Greetings from Missouri!

I'm Marc, and my beautiful wife is Ronette. We have had a Class A we fondly refer to as "the POS" for 4 years. It is a 1987 Mallard Sprinter 26 foot. Although we call it the POS, we have really had fun in it!

The only drawbacks to the unit are the bed in the back corner, and the small bathroom. But it served its purpose and we know we really enjoy RVing and will continue to do so.

Well, BW found herself a new(er) Class A a couple of weeks ago, so we are now the owners of a 36 ft. 1995 Holiday Rambler Endeavor LE. It has a real bed in the back!! And a walk-through bathroom with a shower that I can fit into! Wow!! It is truly a nice step up for us!

We took BW's 2008 Saturn Vue to local shop and had a Blue Ox baseplate put onto it, and got a tow bar to match, so we are now ready to hit the road! The weather is getting nice here in mid-Missouri, and our Good Sam camping group will be on our first campout in 3 weeks.

Ronette and I are looking forward to learning from all the folks on here, and will contribute if and when we have something to share.

Welcome. I'm assuming that you already have or will be installing an auxiliary brake system on your towed vehicle?

While I don't admit to being from Missouri, the greetings certainly are!! But I do reside in Missouri. I do enjoy it here.

I originate from Ohio, and my BW is from Iowa. I usually claim to be from "all over" since I'm an Air Force Brat. Or was, once upon a time.

Thanks for the welcome!
