New to to RVing

Greetings all

As retirement approaches my wife and I have decided to get serious about this RVing thing.

Recently picked up a 2011 316RL Laredo with the "northern" package. Only spent one night in it so far....with a trip planned to southern Michigan in June. Meantime, I'm already tinkering with things. Plans for next week include a wet bolt kit, inverter, and a battery disconnect.

My tow vehicle is a 2005 Ford F250 4x4 Diesel. Drops a little in the back with the 5ver on, so I've got a Ride Rite airbag system on order for it.

Just another hobby to spend money is great!

Welcome Phil,

Congrats on the new fiver.

We have an 03' F250 and put the Firestone RideRite bags on it and our truck is always level.

We just finished a year old tour of the country and never a problem with the truck of the fiver.

Best wishes and enjoy the camping season!

Welcome Phil (& Mrs Phil) & congrats on your new Laredo,

We have the smaller model with the same rear entertainment/living area and have really enjoyed it. Good luck, when retirement finally arrives, and happy trails to you & yours!
