Welcome to JOF from a fellow SC'er. Enjoy the adventure and I hope we can answer any questions or at least point you in the right direction. There is a load of information to be found here. Many questions may be already answered in the forum once you get familiar with finding it.

Don't be shy to ask, as we all were where you are once. Come down to James Island County Park and enjoy Charleston. I would love to say hello in person.

We're in the same "boat" as you are. Newbies to RVing, but not to camping. We own a 2017 Jayco Greyhawk MV. Wish we knew someone nearby to chat with about all the questions we have. Maybe this forum will help. Purchased ours on Sept. 12th, but didn't drive it home until Nov. 3rd. Had 5 people help us get it up our steep driveway. My husband remarked that he wanted to practice driving it locally, especially with the dolly and toad (Prius) we are planning on pulling. When everyone left, I drove it down the driveway, inches at a time, with my husband checking underneath and moving boards under the tires to keep it from dragging. Our neighbor is allowing us to keep it in his driveway right now. Haven't even planned a first trip as my 93 year-old mom is staying with us. My brother is trying to get her into a home in Louisiana where she will be close to her brothers and sisters. After that, we will start planning. Anyway, glad to know we're not the only newbies in South Carolina.

Congratulations on the Greyhawk and welcome to the forum.

You'll probably hear from both Greyhawk and Redhawk owners on this forum. Staying close to home initially is a good idea to comfortable with your new MH and toad.

We did the same thing and are also from South Carolina. Complete newbies. We just picked up our 5th wheel last Friday. Our maiden voyage will be to a nearby state park for a long weekend on December 8th. In January we are heading to Florida for a practice trip. We have reserved pull through sites for the whole trip as backing in is our biggest challenge so far ��. Happy camping to you!

You'll love it! It's hard to describe to those who have never tried this diverse lifestyle just how great it is. We've been camping for over 45 years, and we've had nothing but amazing experiences. Enjoy every moment of your new adventure.
