Smile New to Class A Rving

My wife and I recently bought a 2000 Bounder by Fleetwood gas pusher. Not knowing anything about a class A, we are going through it testing all the parts. We have always owned pull behinds, so this experience is a new one. I am hoping to get lots of advice in the future as we discover things we were not aware of. We are looking forward to trying out the local RV spots at the lake near us. It will be interesting with a Labrador and a Great Pyrenees. Looking forward to discussing things with everyone.

Gas pushers are very rare. Hopefully there are others here that can help.

Sorry, meant to say gas powered. I had been reading an article on diesel pushers and had pushers on the brain.

Master RV Video Series

I found this video fairly helpful. Especially how to turn and the dots on the mirrors. Their other videos are pretty good also.

My first experience driving a Class A was through downtown Houston during rush hour and construction. A little white knuckled (probably Not as white as DW though)

First Class A

Thank you for accepting us as new members to this community. We hope to have lots of helpful tips on RVing, and meet some great people. We just recently purchased our first RV. It is a 2006 Windsport. We hope to have many years of traveling across both countries. We are avid motorcyclers and now want to have our bike behind our home on wheels.
