Had a good drive home to Ontario from Florida, except for 700 miles of very gusty winds which took the mileage down for the 1568 miles with the Buick Regal in tow to 7.08 m/g. The coach performed flawless & the WH chassis sure can take the punishment with some of the bad roads the Winter left behind, it is enough to loose the fillings from your teeth.
Take care

Just purchased our first MH. 2004 Itasca Sunrise 32V (affectionately called Tassie). We did some camping for years in an old 1972 Starcraft popup. Loved those times. Both DW and I are recently retired educators, and planning on doing extensive traveling across our great country and Canada. This forum seems particularly informative, and we look forward to learning a lot, and eventually meeting up with some of you as we travel. If anyone gets to our neck of the woods (Santa Cruz, CA) please give us a shout.

Jim, Sandy, and Tassie

Hi every one; we are getting ready for our next local club rally, as usualy I spend some time checking over the MH after a 1560m run and before leaving for the rally. Nothing major the roof to side ( ditch joint ) on the rear passenger side about 2ft needed re-caulking, other then that just normal stuff happy about that.
Take care Vic

Many times throughout the day,the "guest" list to this site far exceeds the number of members here....It made me curious,so I'm asking specifically those of you that are gueststo participate.
You might possibly be a current Winnebago owner, or even someone contemplating the future purchase of a Winnebago product.

I would like to ask anyone who has never posted in the Winnebago forum to consider making one post.The purpose for this post would sort of be an online roll call...

Your post could introduce yourself,or maybe the type of rig you own or are interested in. PLEASE FEEL FREE to make a one-time post and then lurk again if desired.

Thank you for visiting the Winnebago Forum!

Hi,

I joined in the chat a week ago but haven't posted here.

My husband, Tom, and I purchased our first RV this year and took delivery right after Labor Day. It's a 2011 Vista 30W. So far we've made a couple of 2 night shake-down/break-in trips. The first was only 10 miles from home, the second a 100. A week from today we'll be loading her up for our first real outing - a 10-12 day trip to the North Carolina mountains.

So far we, and the 4 cats, are happy we finally took the plunge and did what we've been talking about for years.

We just bought our first motorhome, a 2000 Winnebago Adventurer 35U a couple of weeks ago. Had our first weekend away last weekend. My wife and I like the idea of "Roughing it Smoothly". Likely members of our entourage on the road will be me "Les", my wife "Bonnie", my daughter "Morgan" and our Dachshound "Bella". I came across iRV2 on the web looking for some answers to questions on the RV we purchased and decided to join the "Club" and now joined the Winnebago Owners Club. We will probably be part-timers for many years yet as my wife's lifestyle requirements currently have me on the "Freedom 98" plan. Happy travels to all and see you out there.

Regarding Leveling jacks. I'm a carpenter by trade and one of the things I'm going to start doing is carry a 4' level and some varying thicknesses of small pieces of wood on my coach. The theory behind this is the twisting of the chassis when on un-level ground. If the jacks come down at the same time, they will jack the coach following the contour of the ground below it. All it would take is a 2 second check with the level between the levelers back and front to know what jacks to put down first and as well side to side. Shims of wood could be put under the longest throw and the coach would come up close to level from the get go. This could possible alleviate some of the twisting of the chassis. I'm sure this could be done by looking at the bubbles inside the coach but using the level would give you an idea of how much ground level is off by looking at the gap under the level on the low side.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this question but if someone can tell me where to post it I'd appreciate it. I have been looking at a 39 foot winnebago chieftain. I Presently own a 2000 Itasca Suncruiser 32 feet with one slide. We lived in it for two months while in Canada. It feels a little cramped and the p30 chassis has a lot to be desired with the brakes and steering. I have put about $10,000.00 in it since I bought it almost 2 years ago. My wife is tired of throwing money at it. The Winnebago is a 2003 with 19000 miles and a one owner. The W22 chassis handles so much better than the P30. There's no comparrison. And the Allison transmisson handles great. Is 39 feet any harder to manuver than a 32 footer? All opinions wecome.

quadman;

Your post caught my attention as my DW and I own a 2003 Chieftain 39T on a W22. We both love the MH and the Workhorse Chassis. Our first MH was a 34' and we upgraded to a 97 37' Adventure. My DW and I both drive and we made that change effortlessly. In 2005 we traded our Adventure for our current Chieftain. The only change was taking wider turns. We both made that change with out incident. We did make some additions that cost us a few $$$. We put on new shocks as the originals did not met our expectations. We also added front and rear stabilizing bars.

We both feel that this coach may last us until age forces us to give up this life style as we have no desire to buy anything different.

On Tuesday nights at 9 PM EDT we have a Winnebago Chat. You are most welcome to join us if you wish. You should get more feed back there.

Don
