New members in south Louisiana

Hi everyone, it's with great delight that I've decided to join this fine network of folks with a common interest and lifestyle. My wife and I have decided 10 years ago that traveling and soon living in a motorhome would be the best way to begin retirement, and we're soon at that point. I began reading various forums months ago and have learned an enormous amount from the many thoughtful and insightful members who participate and I'm exited and looking forward our time as full timers. Oh yea, I did have a question also! I've enjoyed reading many times about people replacing different components of their MH's such as appliances,furniture,etc. I wonder how does one get a new refrigerator or mattress or couch into the MH or the old ones out for that matter?

The frig swap kind of depends on what frig and coach your going to be working with.

Wish you all the best in your retirement. There are a lot of threads that talk about replacing the fridge.

Good luck. Safe and Happy Travels.

Glad to have you here with us. Most sofas built for RVs have parts (usually the arm rests) that are removable that will allow the sofa to get in. Refrigerators depending on what you get will sometimes be able to come through the door but I have known of people that have had to take the windshield out to get it in.
Happy Trails!!

Hi Scott & Dian! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined us!

It depends on the MH! Sometimes you can get a fridge out the door, others you may have to remove the windshield! That's the reason I decided to upgrade my existing fridge instead of replacing it!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Thanks to all for the welcome and the answers to my question. I'm sure I'll have many more questions in the near future.

As a winter visitor in Sulphur I welcome ya'll. Windshield removal is a common way in or out nowadays. Mobil service will come and remove in AM and return in PM to replace it.
