New member here, really new actually because I have never owned an RV. My wife Linda and I are empty nesters, 3 daughters all on their own. I'm wanting to purchase a used class A and introduce my wife to camping with some short trips to selected sites before we push things a bit further. I can use any advice.

Jeff

Big leap. You can rent RVs and camp local as a test of the lifestyle.

If your going to buy first, have her onboard with the decision.

Welcome from Blythewood, SC. Just spent a week at MBSP. good idea to rent one before buying. If she don’t like it you’re out a few bucks.

Since you are located in the MB area there are many places you can start out the camping experience.

The 3 southern campgrounds are good for a real feel start. There are the State Parks and some good new parks in the NMB area.
If you want to buy used check out the dealers, shop them all but be very careful. Stay away from Camping World at all costs. Check this site for CW stories and you will know what we are talking about.
Good luck if you have additional questions private message me, I am local

Welcome to the forum.

You are joining a good group of folks with great info to share. Before jumping into purchasing an RV you might want to rent a couple of times to see if the RV life "fits". Then start visiting dealers to see what is out there.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!

Welcome to IRV2. Check out RV.org. They rate RVs and have information on the selection and dealing process. Good RV hunting.

Welcome to the IRV2.com FORUM(S).
When you first enter this group, a new Member may feel a bit overwhelmed by all the forums you can find here. First, you need to set up your USER CP
Once you open and start a menu will open on the left side just take it all in the step-by-step top to bottom.
NEXT, you will find this forum is made up of 14-Forums broken into four-part forums. First is the HOME, top left above the member's menu. This forum is very helpful to new members to learn and become more familiar with overtime.
NEXT TO HOME is FORUMS on the top left covering Community, RV Lifestyles, Regional and RV Camping. and to the right of this is RV Forums.
RV FORUMS on the top left covers a lot about TRUCKS, Conversations, MVT's, HDT's, Travel Trailers/5th Wheel Chassis & TECH stuff, Chassis CLUB, RV SYSTEMS, Powertrain Garage.

Then you have the OWNERS FORUMS Covering Registry, A-M, and N-Z.

Now if you pan down to the bottom of the page you will find other FORUMS and if you know or have a Class B, you can direct or join the CLASS B FORUMS at Class B Forums And if you get down to Florida this link may be very HELPFUL http://www.CampFlorida.com Enjoy the Roads.
So, welcome you again, I hope you join in the fun and share your knowledge by helping new members find their way in this forum as you would in, any RV Park. Again, make sure to set up your USER CP as this is helpful to you and other members. Again if you enjoy or think of starting your own RV Blog you can do that here as well above on menu bar is BLOGS Enjoy and safe TRAVELS. You can also find RV PARKS above in CAMPGROUNDS. Wal-Mart Parking locator & Bed & Briefest

Welcome to our FORUM, may you be blessed with Happy Travels and safe Trails on all your Road Trips.

Wife is on board with the adventure. I picked up a 2006 Damon Challenger 353W as a starter RV. Going to play with it for the next year and see where this takes us. Kind of excited!

Welcome to the RV World.

Since you have gotten a rig and would like to get started, check out the following. In the Forum section go over to "Southeast" this will take you to the "Carolina Campers" They have a get together scheduled for November 14 thru the 18th at Carolina Pines Resort on rt 90 above Conway.

Read the posts and if you think it would be good for you, sign up and have a fun week end
