Hello everyone. My wife and I are purchasing a new Axis 25.2 on Saturday. We are new to RVing and are very excited about getting started. Any information for beginners that anyone has would be welcome.

Congratulations and welcome.

Everything you need to know is in Ed's excellent crowd sourced owner's manual for Axis/Vegas coaches found here:

Welcome and congrats on your new coach! We've had our 25.2 three years now with hundreds of nights in it, and are still quite satisfied with our purchase.

When you read Ed Felker's great manual, focus first on the PDI list. Print that and follow it along when the dealer tech does the walk though. That will save you some headaches later. Another good idea is to video that PDI walk through.

Once you have taken delivery, and had that first overnight shake down experience, bring your questions here. Many knowledgeable and helpful folks here with answers to almost everything!

Read my posts.... I have one a few weeks old. Get ready to seal EVERYTHING, and update w/suspension mods like most others have. QC isn't a concern for Thor.

I learned quickly - NO ONE cares about your new rig more than you, so do the important stuff yourself, IMHO... I've been fixing at least 1 issue daily for 2 weeks. We had to have all new cabinets ordered, but Im leaning on installing them myself as well.

My wife and I were 100% new to RV'ing. However, the way we are becoming "experienced" is first we spent the first night and only one night in a full service, friendly RV park. After that we went to a local state park for a 2 nighter. Then we went to other local state parks for more 2 nighters. After that we went to two state parks for back to back 2 nighters. We then advanced that to 3 and 4 back to back to back, etc. 2 nighters. E.G. stay 2 nights at a state park, than pack up and move on to the next state park for 2 nights. The constant packing up and unpacking has led us to be relative experts and setting up and striking camp. We will be moving full time into our RV and after our many state park trips we now feel very comfortable in our RV. This forum has a wealth of information and really experienced friendly folks who will give their 2 cents, especially to specific issues, and will usually give multiple valid viewpoints with explanations and discussions.
