Thanks for having me!!

We finally got my dream...well we got New to us 1998 Winnebago itasca sunrise that's 28 feet long. I never had a set dream of which rv I wanted all I wanted was one to travel Canada with my family so our kids could experience all of Canada. Well we only have 2 living at home now, the rest are grown so my dream came a little late but better now then never. I'm too scared to drive it but maybe one day! Right now I'm learning about the rv and decorating! thank you for listening to me!

Congratulations! As far as driving goes, start in an empty parking lot. There are a number of videos on youtube giving beginning driving tips. You'll do fine!

Parking lot is good, just getting there might be a problem.

Thanks

Good ideas - Parking lot first then a quiet rather empty street - then the highway at a quiet time of day.
It's easy.....you'll have fun which is what it's ( RV'ing ) all about.

My wife was a bit nervous about driving our first 28 foot Class C. We now have a 30' Class A, and she thinks nothing of leaving me at home while she and her mom go gallivanting.

You'll do fine. Welcome aboard.
