Hi,
    We are newly retired and just bought our first RV.  We will be taking delivery in April and are looking to have some fun.  The whole RV activity is new to us.  Some friends of ours (full timers) suggested this website for us to get information and meet nice people.  We hope to see you soon.

Ron and Tom,

    Thanks for the welcome.  The motorhome we purchased is an Airstream, 37', A-series.  We are just now selecting a "Toad", tow bar, braking system, etc.  Lots to do before we take delivery.

Dean and Linda,

We have a few articles in our library that might help. Click the Library button above, select Towing and towables, then click on the following articles:

  • Towing a dinghy.
  • Auxiliary (toad) braking systems.

Welcome Dean and Linda,

Just for those reading this thread, I knew Dean and Linda "before Retirement."  Their children attended the  elementary school where I was first Principal and then Linda taught at the school where I was principal when I retired.  I talked about the life style so much and even parked our motorhome on the school grounds over night (ONE time) and gave staff tours.
I'm so glad you could both finally retire.  We knew that giving you the advice to view the  motorhomes at an FMCA rally would be sure to wet your whistle and we're thrilled you've taken the big plunge!  You will indeed find many answers from the seasoned RVers here who have had a wealth of lessons learned, some the hard way some from taking the advice learned here on this forum!
Keep on asking questions.

Betty

I'm sure you will enjoy your Airstream.  Sounds like Betty and Terry had some to do with your getting in on the fun of RVing.  Why not just join us all at the Moab rally.  Ithink there are a couple spaces available and we would like meeting you guys.
