One More New to the Fold

Hi, all! Mickey Richaud here, in Townsend, Tenn. The wife and I have just purchased a '17 A.C.E. 29.3, trading in a Rockwood Mini Lite 2509S. Should be picking it up tomorrow, after the dealership addresses a couple of minor issues. Looking forward to learning more about what we've gotten ourselves into and gleaning info and camaraderie from kindred spirits.


Cheers!

I have the same RV, took awhile to get use to it, if you don't have after market from an rear sway and stableizers, you may want to add them, the ones Thor use don't do the job, your ride will improve 1000%. Other than that enjoy

That is our model too! We have had some issues (who doesn't?!?!?) but are enjoying it. We learn more about it with every problem. We might just become as expert as others on this forum one day....

Thanks again for the welcome messages!


Last week we spent three days in a local RV park (Whispering River in Walland, Tenn. - highly recommend it!) to put all our stuff from the trailer in and get acclimated to the new digs. I think we're going to enjoy this thing!


Now we're looking for a proper "toad". The adventure continues!
