New to F/G RV

We are full time cruisers on a small trawler. We have been travelling on our boat, CHESAPEAKE, about 9 months a year since 2009, and finally sold the house and moved on the boat full time last August. We are warm weather followers, so we usually travel in the north in the summer and south in the winter. Most of our cruising is along the east coast of the US, great lakes, Canada and the inland rivers. We have travelled as far south as the Dominican Republic.
We are looking for a small RV to see how we enjoy spending some time cruising on terra firma as well. We'd like to start small, hopefully a Scamp 13.
Just hopping thru some of the forums, it is clear there is a wealth of knowledge from the members. I'm learning a lot already, including how to pay attention to the guidelines and recommendations!
We appreciate the opportunity to participate in this group.
Joe, Connie & Chase (mariner dog)

PS - The picture is CHESAPEAKE about to be launched in St Marys, GA, in 2015.

Welcome, Joe and Connie!

I agree- this has been a great place to learn!

One thing you will learn quickly is good condition used molded fiberglass trailers are hard to come by and sell quickly. I'd recommend being as flexible as the limitations of your intended tow vehicle allow.

The "Trailer Weights in the Real World" sticky thread in the general chat section is a very helpful resource. Post #297 links to a spreadsheet of the data.

Best wishes finding your perfect land yacht!
