1st Time Jayco Owner!

After a 14 year hiatus my wife and I have returned to the folds of the RV/camping community! Previously we pulled 5th wheelers but the logistics (read: hassle) proved to be too difficult for me; plus, I had some medical issues that had to be resolved surgically and recovered from. Oh, and then I retired and got busy with other things.
OK, so fast forward to last week: we took delivery on a 2016 Greyhawk 29MV. We're impressed with the design and factory fit/finish but experienced some kinks in the so called "dealer prep and delivery experience" which have to be addressed.
Since we are re-outfitting all the odds and ends from zero,our first trip is planned for July.
I'm sure this forum will prove to be a valuable resource of advice and experience.

Thanks all for the warm welcome and encouragement. After 14+ years I see nothing has changed in the gregarious and friendly world of RVers!! I guess I'll hafta list all the toys and such in my profile signature eh?
I am faced with a rather challenging issue accessing my pull latch storage compartments along with driving/handling issues - I'll bring those up elsewhere in the forum.
Cheers, MDW.
