New to RV

Hello everyone!
My wife, 1 year old son and myself are new to RV's. We are in the process of selling our house to move into our 2019 Jayco Eagle 355MBQS. We live in a cramped subdivision and just wanted a change (for the better). Purchased an acre of land from my grandparents and had the RV delivered there last week (as we don't have a tow vehicle yet). We are in the process of having water and electricity installed. Once that is done, we will be living in the RV!

I have camped a ton but have never done the RV thing before. I am up for the challenge and experience. I plan on doing some reading on the forum to gather some knowledge from the more experienced RVer's.

Look forward to reading and participating!

Congratulations on the Eagle and welcome to the forum.

For most folks, living full time in a RV comes later in their RV experience... not first! There's lots to learn and a lot of it is on this site. Just look around and ask questions.

One caution: In the past Jayco's warranty excluded living the unit year round. This may or may not still apply or apply to your situation... just a heads up.
