New to the RV World

My wife and I have been campers and motorcycle riders for the past 50 years, but its been in tents or in a small pop up RV I pulled behind my Harley. We use to think we were in the lap of luxury with a queen size bed, a small dining room and an area to change clothes in. At age 69 and 71, we decided to look into a pop up, that is until a dealer showed my wife a nice bathroom with shower in a trailer almost the same size as a pop up trailer. We now have a Skylark with the front bedroom and looking forward to a lot of travel. I do miss not going cross country on a bike and my wife on her bike, but I guess those days are done. We still ride, but on day trips only.

Welcome to the Jayco forums!

No doubt getting use to having a bathroom will take some time getting use to, but I'm sure you will enjoy the adjustment .

I know what you mean about cutting back on cross country trips with the bike..., my Road King Classic is lucky to see maybe a couple of "overnighters" during the riding season here in Michigan.

Congrats on the new Skylark.

I've been looking at them recent but my wife wants a Queen bed. Are you happy with the double bed in the 21RVB?
