Hi everyone

I am a current fifth wheel owner that is very interested in moving to a motorhome -- probably a Winnebago Adventurer. In fact, we are excited to be taking the Winnebago plant tour this week to learn more about the product.

I appreciate all the great information on this site and look forward to finding the perfect coach.

Greetings from cold Dayton, OH. Just purchased a new to me 2004 Winnebago Adventurer 38G with the W22 chassis. It has Bilsteins too. Love the RV and this forum. Have just winterized it. I am already craving an RV trip, but I work full-time and have 6 more months of cold weather. Toad is a Glastron boat. Guess I will have to live vicariously through this forum until it warms up again.

Dan

We just bought our first motorhome (A Winnebago Adventurer) after having a travel trailer. We considered a 5th wheel for a short time, but decided to take the step to a motorhome skipping the 5th wheel after all. It's our first, and I'm sure we'll be learning a lot over the next few years. Hopefully we can contribute to people by posting information about our experiences here.

When we looked at MH's we searched each manufacturer as well as each floorplan, and decided on the Adventurer. It seemed to meet nearly all our needs and wants over any other. There is a picture of what we bought in an earlier post, if you would like to see it.

We found the floorplan we really liked in the Adventurer and in a Fleetwood Southwind. In the end, the main factors that went into the decision for us were the mechanical upgrades in the Winnebago as well as the appearance of quality in the Winnebago product.

Of course this is our perspective being inexperienced with MH's, so we're hoping our decision turns out to be a good one.

Good luck with your choice.

Hi RV Rick..
You will soon discover you did the right thing. We had a 5W for a short time but discovered we were really class A people.

We really love our Itasca. For, a short time after Katrina we thought we were going to sell it, but that thought faded and we are really glad. Soon we hope to be full time for a year living on property we bought in Mississippi. We are selling our home in New Orleans and building in MS.

Looking forward to the adventure.

You will soon find this forum to be incredibly valuable. Everyone here knows more than I do, but I get a lot of answers to questions.

Walt

OK, I am new here. I live in a 32 foot Winnebago, mostly full time. It is parked in my parents side yard. I moved in 4 months ago to take care of my parents. Dad is 84 and Mom is 78. When we made arragements for me to come, they were both in good condition for their ages. That was the middle of May. I was going to fix one meal a day and help with errands. By the end of June, Dad was using a walker and Mom had been in a car accident and needed full time care. Mom is fine now, and Dad is getting better. He almost died before the doctor found out his disease. Now he gets a shot every few months to make his red blood cell normal. He is slowly getting his strength back.

But, I have a problem. Dad's memory has been affected. I can't find the owner's manual. I found just about everything else, Dad never throws anything away. Dad can't remember how to turn on the hot water heater. I have a repair manual and it looks like I have a gas/electric water heater. But it doesn't look enough alike to be any use. Below the bed, there is a round black dial with a silver face. It has 3 stops. There is a knob labeled 'heater'. It pulls in and out. Then quite a bit below that is a toggle switch below a light. I've turned it off and on, but the light never comes on.

Any ideas?

Its kind of tough getting old but they can retain there health it helps and having you there must brighten up their sprits.

Well Christopher, let me be the first to welcome you even though I've only been posting a short time. I must admit I have a biased interest here as we have just bought a new Adventurer 35A also, and if your avatar pic is of your coach, we have the same color as well. See my avatar pic of our rig to the left.

So, after our first trip out this weekend we have discovered how much we love it, and are looking forward to many more fun trips! I'll be very interested in keeping in touch with you to compare notes along the way.

Good luck with your coach, and I hope to see you on the board.
