From Just Looking to Just Purchasing

We went from "maybe we should get an RV" in December 2017, to going to the Fort Worth RV show in January 2018, to thinking "we'll buy one next January", to getting hooked on Youtube channels all summer, to "as long as we're at the dealer, we'll take it" in September. Bought our first rig - a 2018 Jayflight 24RBS (The "Tiki Room").
I had never been RVing in my life, and am now totally hooked. My wife and I have taken out the trailer for 6 weekend trips so far, and have a month long trip planned for this summer. We're doing some mods now and have more planned for the future.

Funny how that works, ain't it!

You're done. Hooked

Now you make that mental list of what you like and what you don't like about your current RV over time

And use that to shop for the next RV!

We think we want to go bigger as we have big feet. Wider for sure. Not crazy about slides but have to have entry access to the bathroom for travels across the West. Sometimes lunch and bathroom needs hit in the middle of nowhere. Access all around to the bed.

A TV visible from living area and bed. A separate sofa apart from dinette area.
Counter space in the kitchen. I am appalled at the fact that bigger units dont always have more room there than my little single axle RV.

The ability to pass in the aisle butt to butt.

You are just starting. You will make your own "next" list.

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.

Congratulations and I'm sorry. The whole RV lifestyle can be the greatest thing to happen to you, but not always! Luckily you already found the best place to ask all your questions. My rule of thumb is to ask a million questions and don't worry about looking silly. You look sillier when you don't ask . . . .
