Just back From WDW and we bought our first RV!!!

I am so excited. I posted a while back that we were going to purchase a Tiffin Phaeton, but that didn't work out for us.

We have been shopping for a used diesel pusher, but there aren't many to be found here in NJ. We looked online and found LazyDays Rv in Tampa. We took a day out of our vacation to see what they had and we found one we liked.

It is 2008 Fleetwood Excursion. We did not drive it home (the conditions in our neighborhood were bad when we bought it, lots of downed trees and power lines from the storm) we are having it delivered sometime this month.

We visited Ft. Wilderness a few times during our trip. We went to the Marina and rented a speedboat for the kids, and a pontoon boat as well. My DH loved the Ft. and can't wait to go back (which makes me happy as he is getting tired of the parks).

I can't wait to book my first Fort trip!!!

Are there forums like this to get information on other good RV parks as well??

Congratulations. You can ask here for other RV parks also.

Best of luck with your new home on wheels. No better place to break it in than the Fort.

Congratulation on you new Motorhome. You are going to have a blast when you get a chance to take it to the Fort for some fun time.

DW and I purchased our first diesel pusher 5 years ago. An old Holiday Rambler Navigator. It was what we could afford and we love it. The only time we love it more is when it takes us to the Fort!

Funny, after all this time I still get giddy as a kid on Christmas when I fire up that diesel engine headed out on my next adventure.

Enjoy!

Congratulations! I have been living full time in an RV for the last 9 years and I love it! One of those years was in my girlfriends 2006 Fleetwood Providence 39 foot DP. It is very similar to yours. Wonderful RV.

Here are two very important suggestions. You should immediately sign up for CoachNet roadside assistance.

http://www.coach-net.com/

I hit a speed bump with the Fleetwood at about 15 miles per hour and dropped the drive shaft onto the ground. Getting towed 20 miles cost us $1000. This was before I had CoachNet. If I would have spent the $109 per year on CN at that point my tow bill would have been zero. They offer a whole lot more services but free towing is the biggie. If you breakdown, wait, not if, but when you break down they are there to help, 24/7/365.

This is the largest friendliest group of RVers on the Internet. If you have a problem there are experts there in every phase of RVing to help you out and they have a great library full of articles that are helpful to getting to know your RV.
