21NE in August

My wife Deirdre and I are getting a 21NE in August of 23. This is our first travel trailer after years of tent camping. Plan is to get acquainted with the rig over the next 4 years and then take off for a 6 week cross country trip the summer after she retires. Our first use will be a campground in Maine this September. Not much worried about traveling forward but backing up will be entertaining for my neighbors for a time. See ya all out there. Miles

You’ll do fine! There are lots of videos to watch on YouTube and lots of advice out there. I tent camped for 50 years before getting my 19. Towed it back from Chilliwack to North Carolina. First night was a back in with many more to come. The first time backing in will be the first whether it’s your first night with the trailer or 100th. Be patient and you’ll do fine! Congratulations on your purchase!

Welcome! You sound just like my wife and me 7 years ago when, after a two week tent camping trip, decided that an RV would be best at our advancing age. We purchased a Rpod and RVing has been in our blood since. We just took delivery of our 5.0 in January.

Have fun and pick the brains of the fine folks on this forum. You got this!
