New owners - Rubicon!

Of a 2012 Rubicon 1905! This is our first camper of any kind and we're really excited! We've talked about buying one for a long time now? Finally found what we were looking for. With this, we can take our motorcycles with us. Along with our 3 bassets. They're getting older now and we really hate leaving them.

Our tow vehicle is a 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500. Looking forward to learning as much as possible. Any insight or feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Can't leave the kids at home.

We have 3 as well, not Bassets and all different breeds. They keep us young.

First thing to do is have fun. Next would be keep a list of things you need or need to do while out on that first outing. That way it will be easier to remember once you get back home. Remember all of us started out as newbies so don't feel bad about asking questions. There is quite a few of us that have been RVing for 25 years or more. We might even let you in on some of our "do what I say not what I did things"
