Smile Our First Motorhome !!!

We made our first motorhome purchase today,a brand new 2013 Winnebago Vista 30T,and boy is it a beauty!!!...the coach is loaded !!!
We take delivery the 7th of Sept. Our shakedown cruise will be "bobtail"...I need to do more research on dragging a "toad".
This will be quite a change moving up from our 5th wheel and truck,I was amazed at the ease with which my wife handled the rig during the test drive and parking trials....! Anyway,thanks for the forum,I'm sure I'll find a wealth of knowledge within!............tom & eileen

That's a nice looking rig!

You are going to love the view out the front window as you travel around the country.

You are really going to like not having to pull over to use the bathroom.

Congratulations! You are going to love the ride! Winnebago makes a super fine product and they have some excellent support. There are several links on this site to helpful material.

We bought our 2007 Vectra 40TD last November and are in the middle of first long trip (3 months). There's been some snags, but nothing too bad. Just remember when you have home on wheels there's going to be things happen.

Good luck and safe travels....remember that attitude is the difference between and ordeal and an adventure

Congrats! You have a lot of options for a Toad. We are pulling a Honda CRV with no problems and we never know it is back there. Good luck and have fun!

I hope you have as good an experience as we have had with our 2012 Class B ERA. We drove out of our Winnebago dealership and have only been back once. That was to get a squeak in the bathroom silenced ( which they did accomplish) and to say hi to all the great people there. Best of luck and enjoy your great new coach!

Hi -

This is the coach I'm also considering. Did you get the buffet with TV ? I hope you post often so I can learn from your experiences.
