First RV! So excited =)

Just brought home a Winnebago Sightseer 35J yesterday. We have dreamed about this for so long and excited to hit the road! Our house is for sale and we plan to live in the RV once our house sells. Planning to take our first trip at the end of the month!!

Welcome to Winnie Owners, we are glad you joined us.

If you have the time, completing a signature with the year make and model for your Winnie can help others to help you if and when you need it. And you can do that here;

Just don't be lured into a believe that RVing is ALWAYS roses and rainbows. There will be challenges along the way but they can ALL be dealt with using preparedness, common sense, the experiences of others, and of course the wealth of knowledge and information on the internet.

For example, my DW was already a wizard at organization, but she has found so many more great ideas on Pinterest and other sites that cater to the RV industry. As the DH who maintains, repairs, and improves the rig itself, I find YouTube an endless goldmine of ideas and how-to info. Add to that sites such as this and other RV specific sites, and you'll do great!

Thank you both!! Yeah we expect there will be challenges along the way but looking forward to seeing this beautiful country with our kids. I still can hardly believe I have this motorhome sitting in my driveway.

And don't forget to check out Winnieowners' "stickies". They contain a lot of good information:

Also, Winnebago has a lot of information here, including second owner registration:
