If you had long arms you could reach the sink but not much else. The other gal and I decided we could put paper plates and sandwich fixins in that drawer and the fridge so we could do lunch. The sales guy pointed out that in many places you could run that slide out six to eight inches and probably be able to reach most stuff though not easy. The bathroom is fully accessible from the hall door. The bed comes over to the dresser and closets so you would have to crawl across if you wanted to sleep with slides in. We liked the rig, it was well finished and a nice floor plan ESP for entertaining. I think you made a great choice.

DW and I really like the floor plan, but the need to deploy the slide to access the kitchen may very well be a deal breaker. It is a great unit and I really like the fit and finish. So many of the high end coaches have a bling style that just doesn't fit the wife and I's personality.

This unit is beyond a doubt the most desirable all around coach I've seen, and for it to actually be in my price range is far more than I could have expected. I may very well be trading in my 36L for the 36Y. It would be a certainty if not for the slide issue.

Great coach. I hope you find as much use and joy in your 36Y as we have in our 36L. Enjoy, have fun, and be safe.

Bad News

We went today to take delivery of our new 2015 Vista 36Y. When we arrive we saw a tech and salesman standing at the front of the unit. To make it short, water was running out of the engine block. Of course we refused to take it. At first they said we couldn't do that, but after much debate they agreed to back out the deal. We are heart broken, but I'm glad it happen before we drove it off the lot. Thank all of you for welcoming us to this forum.

Water running out of the engine block? That's very serious and very unusual. Where was this unit located at?

It could be as simple as a loose hose connection. But, the dealer did the usual. He did not represent the product or manufacture in a honest way to you, the most important person to Winnebago; a new buyer. I am sorry that your hopes for that unit are shattered. Now that the weather is getting better you could plan a trip to Forest City, IA. Winnebago, Itasca, Era Motorhomes - Lichtsinn Motors Forest City, Iowa - RV Dealer
These folks seem to have a good reputation and are just a mile or so from the factory service center.

I hope you are able to find a coach you like and is worth your being in in the near future. RVing is so much fun.

Happy trails,
Rick
