Greetings

New to RVing, putting together an international 4700 with a 19' 5th wheel, mounted to the truck like a truck camper.
Here to look for tips and ideas and to learn.

As the handle says I'm a horseshoer by trade, looking to live the nomad life for the foreseeable.

I l forward to seeing you down the road.

Hello to you. I like that Escape as a “frame of mind” thing.

I really did. I saw escape rv forum and thought "that's what I want to do, escape the rat race in my rv! Those folks must be cool."

I'm sure you're all cool despite my misunderstanding.

Whether you continue to post or not, visiting any number of forums, brand specific or not can certainly be helpful when problems arise , ideas come or when hard to find items are needed.

I'll bet an Escape 5.0 fifth-wheel would look better up there.

You are absolutely correct. Sadly my budget won't allow for that [emoji22]
