New Everything!

Hello all and thanks for the great info. I pick up my first RV on Thursday. Thanks to the info on this forum I found insurance 50% less than my insurance company quoted and have learned a great deal as we start this new venture.
I have never driven, or even been in an RV until a couple weeks ago. We decided on a 2005 Newmar 37' DP.
I will likely be asking a lot of questions as we learn the ropes. First trip is going to be about 2 miles down the road to the closest RV park!

Thanks MS. I looked at your post on flooring. Looks like it came out great. Probably one of the first upgrades i will do.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome! I am replacing the 4 driver tires as they have been on the coach since new. Other than that I think we are ready to go! Pick up RV tomorrow and tires Friday. We have neighbors that are long time RVers and hope to get some good info from them as well.
