Hello Everyone

We are the proud owners of a 2015 Winnebago Vista 36Y.
and are going to pick it up this Thursday and can't wait.
We have been in camping over 20 years but this is our first Winnebago
I will probably have a lot of questions on our new unit and looking forward in meeting some of you at rallies. Any info you can give me on this forum and the local chapters would be helpful. For now by.

Congratulations on your cool new rig and welcome. I can't help you on rally information, we've never been to one.

Congratulations! That is a very nice floorplan! The popup TV in the buffet opposite the couch is the only way to go in my opinion. Makes for great eye-level viewing from all seating areas, just like at home.

Hello Roger and Deena,

Congratulations on your new motor home from Winnebago. I saw this MH at the Cleveland RV show in January and both my wife and I were extremely impressed with it. We are not ready to retire quite yet but the MH is our current choice when we do. Please do me the kindness of keeping me informed on your ongoing impressions and any on problems you encounter. Once again, both my wife and I are very happy for the two of you.

Mark and Annette

I didn't know the 2015 models were out yet and had to do a search to see what the 36Y looked like. The floor plan is really nice. Winnebago always seems to be a step ahead of everyone else when it comes to their designs.

We've never been to a rally either, so I can't help there.

Great news! The first thing I can advise is to read through all of the owners manuals. This will answer many questions and give you the information to needed to ask intelligent questions. If you can spend your first week with the coach living in it near the dealership this will be to your advantage. Whatever you can fix easily, do so. Tell the dealer what you did. This might work in you favor for getting other 'real' problems fixed quickly. Don't be surprised if things are not perfect. It is a 'new house' and a punch list is to be expected. Exercise the jacks and rooms to be certain all is well there and test the generator. These are things you don't want to have trouble with when out on a trip.

The rig looks beautiful. I wish you many happy trails and many years of fun on the road. The GNR is, as far as I have been told, a great thing to do. Forest City is a neat little town. The factory service center has always been good to us. The Meridian is my second Winnebago product. Overall it is treating us very well.

Many blessings,
Rick

I really like the floor plan of the 36Y but I was wondering about how much access you have to the kitchen with the slide in. Can you get into all the cabinets and access the stove without extending the slide out?

We are still looking but a few weeks ago my DH and I went to the LaMesa RV show in Sacramento and made a point to have a salesman go over the 36Y with us. We and another couple made him run the slides in to see if we could make lunch at a quick stop. The fridge can be opened. The first drawer next to the fridge also is accessible. 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.
