Didn't plan on a new 5th wheel

Hello
This wasn't suppose to happen, we went to the Good Sam Rally in Phoenix, started looking at rigs and ended up purchasing a 3750. It will be quite a change as we have gone from 32 feet to close to 40. We fell in love with the floor plan and are looking forward to having the floor space to entertain our friends as we never had room in our old 5er. This is going to be a wonderful change and it comes at a time as we are about to start on a long RV journey (8 months) with 4 other rigs, we are crossing Canada then heading south into Texas, can't wait to start. We are snowbirds, home is BC Canada, winter home in S. California, Arizona and Mexico. We are members of Western Horizons and Thousand Trails and most people recognize us by our big German Shepherd, Tye. We certainly look forward to meeting other members and learning a lot on this forum from other members.
We are Michael and Diane and our dog Tye.

Nice to meet you Michael, Diane and Tye! Welcome to the Montana forum. Great choice on floorplan We went from a 27' travel trailer to the 3750FL so it is going to be a big change for us. Have a great time on your long journey!

Welcome to the forum and congratulations on a fine choice of a rig. If you got the Big Sky package then you should have opted for the upgraded tires. If not, it is strongly recommended that you do a little research on the Marathon tires that come standard with the rig. We convinced our dealer to swap ours out for Goodyear 614's (with a swap difference) before we would take the rig off the lot.

Congratulations on the new rig. You'll find this is the place to get ideas and share information. Someone on this forum has already been there and done that and are more than willing to share.

We went in the 3750 at the Rally, nice rig. We enjoyed the Rally, but got off much cheaper than you did.
