New guy here

Thinking about buying a Gemini or Compass for touring, just my wife and I. We currently own a 26' travel trailer, but a motorhome would be much more convenient for us. Many moons ago I worked as an RV technician, and swore I would never own one, but my resolve is fading...

Welcome to the forum! There are Gemini and Compass owners here, so you can bring both general and specific questions.

We have had trailers, 5th wheels, Class A and way back, a Class C. For the two of us, our Vegas 25.2 fits just right. If the Gemini/Compass has enough storage, inside and out, it might fit you just right. Think about all the stuff you feel you must take along.

Be sure to budget for depreciation, insurance, repairs and eventual tire replacement. And, beware of those 20 year loans, a sure recipe for being seriously upside down in no time.

Having training as an RV tech would be a useful skill for any RV owner!

New to Forum and New to R.V.

Robin (wife) and I just bought a 2017 Outlaw, which hasn't been delivered yet. We bought a Jeep Trailhawk for a flat tow. We have NO idea what we are doing, but it is a great adventure learning.
