Hi ya'll! I just joined the forum; just bought my '08 Jamboree Sport RV in April & have already put 5000 miles on it! My first rv & I love it. I took a friend with me to Mt.Rushmore in Aug. & my sister & I just got back from Charleston,SC this week. (I live in TX). We went to the RVWomen National Convention in Charleston & had a great time. Now I'm joining the TX chapter, the Ramblin' Roses, & meeting them at Lake Livingston in Nov. Any of you women in the TX area come join us! I am married (36 yrs) but my husband isn't really in to the rv stuff. I've wanted one for years & started seriously shopping & researching 2 yrs. ago; now I just want to go all the time! Looking forward to hearing from some of you! Liz & Jack(4 legged)

Hi Liz, wow! that is so exciting to hear. Let me welcome you, I just joined the forum last night. In reading your post, I felt like that should be me & is going to be me real soon. I am strongly looking at purchasing a C class in the upcoming months - 2009. I'm in Texas also, so hopefully, will be able to catch up with you at the next RV Women's Nat'l Conv.
The ladies on this forum have helped me a great deal already. I am blessed to know them.
Welcome!

Thanks for the welcome Marda, hey, perhaps you or the other ladies can help me with something. I managed to pull my sister away from her hubbie to go on the camping trip with me in 2wks. This is going to be my trial run for the first time RVing. Whoohoo!
Question, I have an option of reserving a spot at the campground that has sewer, water & electric, or just water & electric. Since this is my first RV camp trip, I don't know which one to reserve. Do I need the hookup for the sewer? or not?
Any advice would help. I don't like being a newbie but gotta start somewhere.
Thanks a mil ladies.

Hi ! How long are you and your sister going to be camping ? If it's just a few days you'd be OK without sewer, especially if you use the campground showers. Just dump the black tank before you leave the CG. Oh - I suppose it depends on how big your holding tanks are too - I'm not sure what you drive. You may want to post this question in the Open Talk section just so more folks see it Enjoy your first trip :D Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm renting a class C and we'll be gone for only 3days. I will post on the open forum as you mentioned.
Thanks again.

You can ask at the place where you rent the RV but I'd sure think you'll be find without sewer for 3 days - if you can get a sewer hook up though, why not go for it ! Trudy, Molly & Murphy 37' Montana 5th wheel - "be the kind of person your dog thinks you are"

My sister & I can camp for 3 days without emptying tanks (even taking showers). But, speaking from experience of my first trip, I would pay the extra & get the sewer hookup. You're going to have to dump at the end of your trip & it's really nice to be able to do it at your site instead of waiting in line at the dump station. Plus, since it's your first time to dump, you don't have to have the added pressure of people waiting in line behind you; not to mention all the "experts" watching! Have a great time! It will seem very simple after you do it the first time! Liz & Jack(4 legged)

Liz, NICE RV!! We once had a Jamboree, and have had many Fleetwood products. We found them to be quite dependable.
J. good luck on your RV search. I agree with Liz and Trudy, I'd reserve a space with sewer connections. Make your first trip out as stress free and fun as you can make it, and break yourself in right!
Welcome, both of you to our wonderful Forum!! You'll find our Forum Friends on here most helpful, friendly and supportive. So, come on in and set a while!
Enjoy RVing!

Thanks, Joella. In doing 2 yrs. of research of what to buy, Fleetwood seemed to have the best ratings for value, handling, etc. Mine is considered to be entry level & I'm already thinking about upgrading. If I just add 4' I can get a sofa & a little more bathroom space which would be nice. I was afraid of the added length when I purchased, but now that I'm used to driving it, I don't think 4 extra feet will even be noticable. I had a Winnebago salesman last month tell me I needed to get rid of my Fleetwood because the co. is about to go under; but an rv dealer friend who is getting ready to stock Fleetwoods says they're as strong as Winnebago, but who really knows? Except for a few minor problems, it's a really good rv. The biggest problem is a tempermental slide-out! Liz & Jack(4 legged)
