I am a new member to this forum and community. Turning 50 in December, my wife and I decided it's time to start living and having some fun traveling. Got bold and purchased a Class A motorhome. Picked it up over 800 miles away, and with no experience driving a coach like this, had our first white knuckle adventure driving home! Haha Made it home safely, thank God, but there is so much I need to learn, which we knew going into this. So glad to join a forum like this, where rookies like us can get advise and support. Look forward to it! Chris

Welcome to the group from Wildwood, fl., for now. We are at the Three Flags, Thousand Trails park off of I-75.
Find a huge empty parking lot and practice your backing, turns and braking. Only way to get better at driving is driving. During practice take your time, slow is your friend.

Welcome to iRV2 .

First thing to do is to make sure your home state doesn't require you have a special license for a coach of your weight , or that has air brakes .

Little info gems like that don't come up in conversation with the salesperson , who's just eager to have you sign on the dotted line.

Please consider setting up a signature line , with your coach info , so you don't have to type it in with every question .
The info , when you post from a PC (APP doesn't work for this) will automatically appear below your posts as mine does below this one.
