Delivery day for my Z-1!

I took delivery of my first RV today and headed up to an RV campground fairly local to me here in Bucks County PA. It was very exciting to finally be driving it, manuveuring it in to it's space, struggling with leveling it and moving all my items in to it. Figured out that the heat furnace doesn't run on electric and turned on the propane to blast the heat here for the 30 degree temperature night. It's winterized to carefully balancing water/commode use with healthy doses of antifreeze.

All in all, I am very satisfied and glad to finally take it from an idea, a dream in to reality. Can't wait to learn more about the RV and the truck, and they many journeys to come in the future.

Yes, nice looking set up! It’s always fun to read the excitement when an owner first pics up their RV.

Looks great! The propane heat works great but will cost you. I purchased an infrared electric wood stove from Home Depot that claims it heats 1000 square feet (not the 400 sf that electric fireplaces usually claim) and that, coupled with another small electric heater kept out 25RB at 68 degrees this weekend while snow was falling on Lake Huron. Have a blast!

Congrats on your first and new unit. Remember we’ve all been wher you are. Ask questions. Best way to learn is from others with experience.
