New Fulltimer

Hey guys, I'm new here. Pretty excited to join the RVing community. Just placed an order for an Eagle 355MBQS fifth wheel. Never owned a trailer before so it should be a pretty amusing learning experience. The wife, baby, and I are taking a year or more off to explore the country and make some lifelong memories. We plan on boondocking as much as possible and do tons of hiking/outdoor stuff. Just waiting to get renters into the house and the Marine Corps to set me free and then we hit the road!

Thank you! Still looking for a good deal on a tow vehicle, don't take delivery of the trailer until August. It's between a diesel Ram 3500 SRW or diesel F350 SRW. I've always wanted a Ford truck but right now Ram is offering a ton more off sticker. I kind of blew my load on the trailer so my dream of a F350 Lariat has died.
