Yet another noob


I have been "lurking" on this forum for a while.
Lot's of good information.

My wife and I have been looking at RVs for some time.
After driving several we decided on a class A gas.

We then narrowed it to the floor plan we wanted.

After a few months of looking My wife found a 2012 Fleetwood Bounder 35K in Texas.
I made the road trip to go look at it and ended up buying it.

We are looking forward to picking it up.

This will be our first RV so any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new rig and remember that the learning curve is very long but thankfully only steep in the beginning.

You are joining a good group of friends here with good information to share. Read the various threads here and ask questions as they come up or add information if you can.

Good luck and enjoy the adventure!
