    New Big Horn

    This is my first post on the forum and would like to introduce myself and wife. Dave & Linda here from Vermontville MI. We just purchased the 2011 3670 Big Horn and so far it appears to be everything we need. We are just now packing it for fulltime living as I just retired after 42 yrs with the railroad. So we will be lurking here and trying to keep up with all of you and learn this forum, and learn from all of you. Would also like to hear from people who actually do fulltime in these things and learn from them also. Its kind of overwhelming trying to put what you need and dont need in this very limited space. Not to count getting the stick house ready for my daughter to live in.

    Thanks
    Dave & Linda

    Hi Dave and Linda,

    Welcome to the Heartland Owners Forum and Family. We have a great bunch of people here with lots of information and all willing to share their knowledge if needed.

    Yes, I'm sure it's a big job, but it will have it's rewards.

    Don't just "lurk", jump in and ask your questions, or for advice. We have people from all over that are full timing and have been through what your now doing. They can give you all kinds of ideas and help.

    Enjoy the forum and get out and meet your new family at a rally someplace.

    Welcome to the forum. We have a Bighorn 3670 RL (2008) and love it, so does everyone that we meet at parks all over the place. Looking forward to a trip to Colorado and everything in between Ohio and Colorado in about three weeks. You have purchased a great RV. Enjoy.

    Hi Dave and Linda,

    We have lived in our 08' Bighorn for three years, and it is still going strong. It's had some issues, but Heartland has been great and took care of any problems.

    As for packing, you will find you need much less than you think. We make a point of every six months going thru the unit and getting rid of those things we've not used. Glad we do this, just took up golf and now had to find a place for two sets of clubs...LOL!! Fulltiming you will find you need a good selection hand tools, wrenches, screw drivers, etc. We also carry a 150psi compressor...a must! I keep a service for 4 of Corelle, assort plastic storage bowls with lids, a basic set of pots and pans, a crockpot, small table top "Forman" type grill, coffee pot, toaster and that's about it. Clothes...we have mostly light spring summer wear, shorts, tops, etc. We do have a few heavier clothes, jeans, sweaters, 1 light jacket and a heavy coat, gloves, hat...just in case. Like right now, we're sitting in Rawlins, WY waiting for the snow storm to pass....never again in the spring!!

    Basically pack what you NEED...not all those things you want. We took a few things from "home" to make the RV home...basically pictures and small things to hang on the walls. Other than that we don't need much else. It will take a little time, but letting go of things is liberating.

    Welcome to the Heartland family, and enjoy fulltiming...

    We don't full time in ours, but something you might consider for storing some extra heavy clothing are the storage bags that use a vacuum cleaner to pull the air out. We keep our extra blankets and towels in them and they take up a lot less space.
