Smile New to Rving, and Forum

Hubby and I are venturing into your world of RVing. We do not even have our RV yet--it is being "prepared" for us. We bought a 2006 Bounder 35E. Already an adventure. I don't know the lingo. Basement in a moving vehicle? A basement is a dark place underground so how can it be part of a vehicle?
Does anyone have a dictionary?
Looking forward to being part of this new lifestyle. So far EVERYONE I have met has been very friendly, willing to share experiences. Hope I can someday be knowledgeable enough to give back to you all.

Welcome aboard. I know the feeling. First travel trailer back in 89 and 95. Class A motorhomes the last 3 years. Great information here, youtube and other forums. Enjoy the getaways and always, be careful and start slowly.

Welcome! We are in the process of going full-time ourselves. This forum is a great source of information. Don't be afraid to search the forums for answers, and if you don't find it feel free to ask questions. We've learned sooooooo much from reading, researching and asking questions. Everyone we've ever dealt with on here is very friendly and willing to help.

Welcome, and congrats on your RV! Like others have said, these forums are an excellent way to learn. I scan the threads almost every day, and almost every time I learn something I didn't know before. It's great!

Enjoy your travels!
