5th Wheel & RV Newbies

Happy to find this forum and all the experience and advice!

We just purchased our first RV, a 2010 Springdale 280 5th wheel, and our tow vehicle is a Dodge 3500. We plan to use the RV on our Hill Country property while building and during down time, will take it on road trips.

Realistically, we donít expect much down time until building is complete, so not fooling ourselves about that but excited about the future prospect of RVing!

Looking forward to being a part of this forum!

The Blanco area is pretty nice. The Old 300 BBQ place on the square is pretty good chow. Used to be a steak house which was really good as well. The Chess Club cafe is a pretty fair place for a sandwich as well. The area is a great place to ride a motorcycle. We live SW of Blanco near Medina Lake in the Hill Country. Welcome to the forum!

Thanks! Yes, lots of scooters in the area! And now that the weather is cooling down a bit I'm sure will be plenty more, including my husband's as soon as we build the barn!

Since you are building a barn, I would build it big enough, and tall enough, for your new 5th wheel and any future RV. Texas weather can do some real damage to RV's.
Welcome to the forum from the other side of Houston.
