Welcome to the forum and the Winnebago Forum. You have a great coach. We are glad you joined us. I have no experience with steer-safe bu we certainly have members who do.

Hi from Atlanta, GA. We're picking up a 2006 Adventurer 38J tomorrow. Hubby is retired but both of us work part-time and don't plan on full-timing (yet!). We bought our first RV in 2003 (Keystone Everest 5th wheel) and finally made the decision to spare the bucks and get the real thing. I'm glad I found this forum and look forward to reading and contributing posts. For a while, I think my posts will all be in the question form (lol) but look forward to the day when I can feel like an oldtimer. Thanks, everyone, for providing so much great information in this forum.

Thanks for the welcome, Glenda and Grant. We brought our '06 Adventurer home a short while ago and got 1/2 our stuff transferred from our 5'er before it got dark. Wouldn't you know it, gotta work the next two days and have a family commitment this weekend, so we won't get to really try it out for a few more days. We now have some thoughts/questions I'd like to pose to the more informed, so as I get time, I'll check in and address those in the appropriate forum thread. Happy to be here!

Just got back home from our trip to San Diego. 1100 plus miles and performance was better that expected. 6.3 MPG and it went up the grapevine (I5) at 50 plus except when cutoff by some fool darting in and out of traffic. It would then drop down to 30 MPH or so. I could then slowly pick back up to the 50 MPH range.

I was very impressed with the overall handling, steering, braking, etc.

The major concern is the loss of 2 quarts of oil, most of it ending up on the toad. I have an appointment with the Workhorse repair facility for next week. We have a short list of minor problems that the dealer will fix this week.

The more we get used to the interior layout the more we like it. It is not the perfect lay out, I doubt that the perfect floor plan exists.

We have always wondered how the mileage would be o a new RV. I wonder if 6.3MPH is average??

Just checking in as requsted way back in 03 . I'm also a member of WIT and have been looking at the monthly publication page by page. Guess what? Never saw this wealth of info web site monitored by Winnebago mentioned once. Just basically stumbled upon it. We think our 33V w/ W-22 Chevy 8.1 is the best RV available. The James Bond couch (Rest Easy) and tip out storage (Store More) bins are the greatest. Actually have an extra set of knee pads now that I don't need them in the RV any longer . The 04 did not come with Billstein shocks so am having Camping World do this modification and some kind of front end steering stabelizer. Check my profile for more and again in a couple weeks and I'll update the front end stabilizer factoid. From what I've been reading, the Ultra Power package will do everything the other company markets "they" will do for 1/3 the price. Not really looking for >MPG juz some extra pedal room taking on the big hills in the West where Fort Living Room will be located.

Thanks, Don. We are very excited and are foaming at the mouth in anticipation. I wish it happened a few months ago so the weather would be better, but better than never!
