Just Purchased

My wife and I just took delivery of a 2016 Precept 31UL, got out of boating (352 Silverton) and back into camping. We have tent camped, had Jayco Popup in the 80s, and tent camped again last summer (snowed on us last June in Durango), but this is our first RV.

Planning on towing a 1966 MUTT (M151A1) after we pick it up in April. It is currently being restored. My lovely wife bought it for me for Christmas. I drove one in VN in 1968. Trying to figure out the best way to tow, 2 down, 4 down or trailering. Leaning toward trailering but don't like the idea of dealing with a trailer in camp grounds.

Looking forward to getting into the RV life style part time.
