Practicing before I retire

Helloooo, everyone,, Newbie to the whole RV concept of camping. last fall several Old high school buddies and myself (class of '75) rented a camper and went to Homestead for the final NASCAR race of the year. Had a BALL.
Now I got the bug,,, I bought a '91 Sun Stream 2000 by Gulf Stream, Model 8370, (BADC) Its in pretty good shape, but I can tell there will be a lot of reading and Questions, questions, and more ???s .
First right off the bat is no Black and Gray water valves, and I think the Black water tank has been removed, hopeing for pictures and size of said tank. As at most race tracks there is not hookups. and there are times we, wife and myself, want to do some boondocking.
As I discover more I'll have more ??s,, Thanks to everybody for your help.

Welcome to the forum! I am a newbie myself and graduated from HS the same year, my how time flies....

Wish I could help with your question, but the only rv I know anything about is my own...and sadly, I am no expert....not yet.

Congratulations on the new toy, once you get it figured out, I am sure you are going to have a blast!

Hi Mody,

Welcome to the forum. At the top of the page is the "Owner's Forum" You may find help there as there is a group for Gulf Stream. If you do not have a black tank, more than likely one can be put back in I would think. Did it have the manuals with it. If so, take a look through them and see where it should be.

This is definitely a "got the bug" type of lifestyle. I fell in love with it years ago with my parents but this is the first time we have owned a MH ourselves. I Love It!.

Keep asking questions, someone is likely to have an answer for you.

Hello from the eastern shore of Maryland

First time RVer. Bought a used Fleetwood wilderness, and I don't know a thing about it.
