Default Complete Newbie w/new Travato 59K

Hello, Everyone!

My partner and I have dreamed about a Class B for many years, and we are now about to take delivery of our very first RV: a new 2017 Travato 59K! We are so excited

I've been learning so much reading this forum. Thanks to all for sharing your experience.

All best,
Emma Joy

The Class B Camper Vans group is not half bad either.

Congrats! Hit the road as soon as possible, working the systems is a great teacher (and the manual at the ready). Oh, don't worry if you forget to take something, you will over pack, under pack.....and then - there is a Walmart on every corner. I wish you smooth roads ahead. Ron

Thanks, Ron and everyone else! I am quickly learning that the RV community is a friendly and helpful group of people We'll practice at home for a day or two, then head to a local park for a weekend with our two tiny dogs for our first "real world test." And, yes, we'll keep the manuals handy!

Congrats! My wife & I are also new to this world. We bought our 2004 Roadtrek 190 Popular in September of last year. We have gone on about 7-8 trips as long as a week and had great times. We can also tell you that this RV community can't be beat - they are such friendly and helpful people!

One bit of advice from me that I don't think you'll hear elsewhere is to wait until you need something to buy it (there are exceptions such as a good surge protector [$200+] if you plan on ever hooking up to electricity). I had done so much research that I thought I knew what I needed and ended up not using such as an electric blanket. Also I got this highly recommended fan that probably works way better in larger spaces but for a little class b I think one of those oscillating ones work best. The take-away for me was there is a lot of info out there that relates more to RVs in general but not necessarily to van conversions such as ours.
