New to all of this!

Hi...

This fall I purchased and situated a fifth wheel at a campground in Maine...all in one day! It will serve as my summer and fall home, allowing me to be near my family up there since I sold my house. I got to spend all of 10 minutes in it before catching my flight back to Florida!

I know absolutely nothing about this lifestyle, and am very excited as well as a little uneasy about all of this. (I will be doing this all on my own)

So...I hope to learn a lot on here. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. As I said, I'm a total newbie at this. Hope I'm not in over my head...nothing like jumping in...

I don't think you're in over your head. Heck, you can learn as you go and with the right attitude you'll enjoy your new journey!

Good luck!

There is a fifth wheel forum and you may want to see if your manufacturer is listed as a separate forum. Jump in with both feet ask questions, most folks are very patient and helpful.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us.

Don't be afraid to ask your neighbors for advice. Most RVers love to help.

Happy Trails!!!

"Don't be afraid to ask your neighbors for advice. Most RVers love to help." We have been on both ends of this equation and it works!
