New here from central NY...Hello...

Hello to everyone,
I guess we can stop lurking in the background now that we have officially purchased our RV, a 2017 Axis 25.2...picking it up in Albany next Wednesday.

I have read practically every post and have taken away an invaluable amount of information here, I am particularly fond of the Axis/Vegas mods thread for obvious reasons.
We live in the Finger Lakes region of NY so there are plenty of campgrounds near for the "shakedown" trips then we have a month long trip to Utah planned for May.
We already have a lot of mods planned and have made some purchases so I hope to post pics and info as changes are made (It's impossible for me to leave things alone...I believe I can make anything better LOL).

Looking forward to reading and participating in future threads.
Thanks,
RJ & Pam

Congrats and welcome! I am originally from Cortland and my wife is from Bloomfield, so we know the Finger Lakes well. We are looking forward to being back there later this year.


As many have already stated, you will find a lot of help on these forums.


Enjoy!!!

Thanks to all for the welcome.
We can't wait for some warmer weather (it's 24 degrees, snowing, and wind guts to 50 mph today) so we can get this thing on the road...

SuperD, we will be traveling through Texas in May, stopping for a day or two in Palo Duro park...have you ever stayed there and if so any recommendations for which part of the park to stay in?
Thanks

Welcome RJ and Pam,

You are in a very beautiful area . Watkins Glen State Park is one of my favorite in all of the U.S. I'm into waterfalls and In my opinion Watkins Glen is not to be missed.

We took delivery last May of our Axis 2017 24.1 . Had a fabulous summer traveling and I'm getting it out of storage this weekend to take on spring break with the kids.

You have come to the right place . Since I've been a member, I have received much helpful information from a very knowledgeable and genuinely nice group of people.

Wishing you happy and safe travels!
Sandy
