Good evening everyone,

I am Ben from Massachusetts and my wife and I just (I mean just, like arrived in our driveway tonight) bought a 1992 Intervec Falcon 190. Looking for anyone that can guide us into the B world. We are coming from a pop-up that we loved but hated the set-up process. Anyways, looking forward to chatting around the forum.

Hi all. My wife and just upgraded from a 98 Ford E150 Sherrod hi-top conversion to a 99 American Cruiser Class B on a Dodge B3500. We live in southern Maine and I plan to retire in 3 - 1/2 years after 35 years as a marine/mechanical engineer and plan to spend a lot of time travelling. We love the American Cruiser, particularly the elimination of the side door in favor of a rear entry. It free's up that space for the dinnette. I also have a 1992 27 ft Coachmen Capri Class A that I picked up during a 2 year stint in Mississippi in 1999. Unfortunately, my wife never took to the Class A so aside from a handful of excursions, it hasn't had much use in the 10+ years we've had it. Different story when I bought the used Sherrod off Craigs List a year and half ago. We've made a number of trips in that. Then in June coming back from Acadia Nat Park, we spotted the American Cruiser and bought it. We've used about every other weekend since. I'm looking forward to taking it for a longer trip, hopefully this fall. I love the forum. I log in about every evening an read through various posts. Its a great resource.

Welcome to the forum. Not too many members find this private members-only area. I'm glad you did.
I'm nearby up in New Brunswick. I'd hoped to get to Acadia this year but it is looking like next year now.

Hello everyone. My name is Sam and my wife is Judy. We live in the foothills of North Carolina. We are both semi-retired (whatever that means) and long to travel. I have been wanting an RV for years and we decided "now is the time" We are total newbies. The only time I have done anything related to this was with the Boy Scouts years ago. We just bought our first RV, a 2000 American Cruiser. Dodge 2500 with a 360. We haven't used it yet but are planning a night or two out in the next week or so.

I have been reading the forum for the last 4 or 5 months and can't tell you how much I have learned and what a joy it is to know that there is a place to go for info. I have a few questions about TVs that I will post later.

Thanks again for being here for us,
Sam & Judy

Hi Sam and Judy,
Welcome to the forum - if your like me you may find it addictive. I log in and review the new posts nearly every evening. My wife and I have a 1999 American Cruiser that we picked up this past June. We love it and have done something with it every other weekend since we got it. We call them retirement test drives as I'm planning to retire in about 3 years. We spent last weekend at Abol Bridge Campground just outside Baxter State Park here in Maine. The leaves are starting to change color.
Hope you enjoy your American Cruiser as much as we do ours!
Randy

Hello! I'm new here and don't have a van yet, but hope to in the future. My husband and I (both 50-somethings) currently live in Belize but are planning to move back to the US as soon as we can sell our condo. It's nice here, but it's a very small country, and we want to do a lot more traveling. We've managed to see almost the entire country in just a year here. Domestic travel is easier for us now than international, since we have a dog.

Our current plans for when we return to the US are to take on a DIY van conversion (my husband is very handy). We are looking seriously at the new Nissan NV2500 with high-top roof. We want to carry four bikes (2 road, 2 mountain) inside, a take-apart tandem kayak, plus other gear. We're planning a platform bed (above the bikes), as well as an outdoor screen room where we'll spend much of our time. Our future plans include touring all over the US and camping, hiking, bicycling, and kayaking where possible. We love the outdoors and birding.

Glad to find this forum as we have much to learn!

Greetings everyone,

I'm from Wichita, Kansas. and no I don't own a Class B as of yet.
But when I move up from my teardrop someday I'll be looking really hard at the B's.
Just wanted to say hi.

Greetings everyone. We are long time rv'ers that started out in 1970 with 4 kids, a dog, and a Jayco fold down. Since that time, we've owned 3 class A diesel pushers, a Scamp 13' travel trailer, a motorcycle popup, a teardrop we pulled behind our 1929 street rod, and currently a 2012 Winnebago ERA class B. A few yeas ago we went to Alaska in our Dodge 4X4 pickup with a Leer tall topper. It's amazing what you can see on the back roads of Alaska in a 4X4 pickup. We've been into classic cars/street rods/Corvettes for many years. Kinda given that up and have a Mini Cooper S as a toad that we occasional tow behind the ERA when we feel the need. We spend 4-6 months on the road and really enjoy the flexibility of the Class B as we don't miss "herding" a 40' coach with a toad everywhere we go.
I'm a retired electronics plant manager (15 years ago) and my wife and I have been married for 52 years. We're blessed with 4 wonderful children and 6 grand kids.
Well, that's enough info I guess, glad to be here to learn and contribute whenever I can. Have a great day and happy camping to all!

Greetings from the Honeymoon Capital of the World, Niagara Falls, Ontario. I am a retired police officer, having served for 35 years in the Niagara Region. I am looking forward to travelling and exploring as much of North America as time and money permit. And I plan to document my travels through my passion for photography. I am what I consider a novice RVer, having purchased my 2012 Winnebago ERA last November.

I am not a destination person. I am not a camper. You wonít find me in a campground sitting in front of a campfire roasting marshmallows. I like to get out and drive and explore. During the past year I have made several shake down trips in preparation for three major retirement trips I have planned over the next few years.

The Maritime Provinces and Newfoundland Adventure
The Alaska Road Trip Adventure
Route 66 from Niagara to Chicago and then on to California.

Each of these trips will be from 3-6 months. There will be plenty of smaller trips in between.

Having never owned an RV or trailer until recently I have to admit that it has been a bit of a challenge to learn about the various features and mechanics of RV living and travelling. Slowly, but surely I am getting there.

Looking forward to learning and sharing information about the Class B experience with members of this forum.
