Hello to all !! After wanting and dreaming for many years (and pwning a bunch of boats in the meantime) we've finally taken the plunge in a big way and can't wait to see the country with our new "girl". Bought a 2013 36RL and so far couldn't be happier. Did one short weekend trip and then it got cold here in the Baltimore area so currently she's winterized and in storage (bummer). I'm about 3 years away from the full timer lifestyle so for now will be a bunch of long weekends and weeks away.



Pulling with a 2012 F350 SRW with the 11,5 gvw package and smowplow prep (HD alt and front springs). Seems to handle coach fine and since it's my daily driver work truck was trying not to do a dually. We're going to keep the coach on the light side for now (No W/D or Genset) and see how we go. Will do a dually later if need be.



I'll apologize in advance for all the questions that I'm sure will follow.



Oh, and the handle is from the plane - I fly a Piper Warrior and a Sportcruiser if anyone else is a pilot

Piperguy,



Welcome to the RV'ing lifestyle and to the Redwood family. Also welcome to the forum. I know you will enjoy your new Redwood as we do. It is a quality coach. We are happy to answer any questions.

Welcome aboard ,i see that you are in the Baltimore area.We have A 40kb also in Balt area.If you find yourself in the need of an authorized warranty or delivery issues that you haven't found yet I am using Chesco Rv on rt 40. They are a crossroads shop.I talked to the RW factory and they recommended them.So far so good with them mine will be in there till mid feb.I think you will find that overall you bought a finely built rv.As you know there is always some problems but the RW factory response has always been positive with me and with others on the forum.If you have questions soot me a message,I have the factory contact numbers if you don't already have.Good travels to you.

Thanks for all the welcomes ! We're new at the RVing part, looking forward to it. I've spent many years delivering boats and yachts for owners and most of the systems are similiar but I know there is much to learn. Looking forward to not having to put an anchor out at night or worry about a line being tied !



Camping Couple - we are in Perry Hall. Would enjoy getting to know others that like Rving. We bought ours from Leo's and so far have been very happy with them but it's nice to know Chesaco could aslo do warranty work as we are close to them.

Piperguy...welcome to the group! Now you have a nice trailer and a great little airplane that's easy on the eyes. We'll have to meet up and go to Oshkosh with our Redwoods. It'd be fun to have 4 or 5 Redwoods all lined up on the tarmac. I'll look forward to meeting you

Hi Dave ! Same here. As a matter of fact I think it will be going to Oshkosh this year. We have flown out every year for the last 10 and camped in the North Forty but the other half has said that it would be really nice to come back to air conditioning and her OWN shower at the end of the day ! Also would be nice to be camped at one of the campgrounds right along the Lake. Would also be handy to have 2 vehicles there in case the other half's wanted to go outlet hopping and the guys to the show ......



Look forward to hearing from you. It would really be convenient if the Redwood Rally was tied into the end of July ..........
