New to RV'ing

Hello all! I am new to RV'ing. I have been camping all my life and at one time I had a 19' little bumper pull trailer. But all my friends have 30-35' trailers/RV's. This is my first RV. I bought it last year. It is a 2001 National Dolphin 5373. It is 37' feet long w/ the tag axle. I used to drive big rigs over the road, so this is easy for me to do. I am teaching my wife to get used to driving it as well, simply incase something happens and I need her to drive.
Currently we are finding things that need to be fixed, replaced and just down right not working. I have read many articles here and quickly joined up.
I love the community and the responses. I can't wait to start to using it more and getting familiar with all this site has to offer.

Being an older rig, it surely will need some TLC. However, buying a new one wouldn't be much different. Lots of issues and very slow dealer turn-around on warranty work. You might be better off with the 2001. Enjoy.
