Hello, new to the IRV site, lots of info I am still looking thru. We have been RVers since 1998 with 2 boys and 1 daughter in a Class C, moved up to a gently used 2002 Brave 32V in 2004 and LOVE IT! Have had many great adventures, now planning to graduate to full-timers in next 24 months and looking to upgrade to 05 Adventurer/Suncruiser 37B plan, so interested to see opinions on these units for full-timers. Thanks!

I posted this to the WIT forum but see you've also posted here.

Welcome to the forum.

I advise not getting the 37B on the Workhorse W22 chassis. Get the W24 chassis. The W24 will be hard to find for 2005 as it was an expensive option and dealers would not order it.

If possible look for a 2006 rather than a 2005. The styling changed in 2006 (this is the current styling) and the Allison went from a 5 speed to a six speed. In 2006 the 37B was only available on the W24 chassis.

-Tom

Tom,
Thanks for the advice. Via this forum and others I have come to the same conclusion for our needs.

We fulltimed for over a year (and lived on a sailboat for over six years), so we have a good appreciation for living in tight quarters.

The best advice I can give you is to look for a coach with an absolute minimum CCC of 2500 pounds. Even with 2500 pounds of CCC, you will need to be careful of what you load. 3,000 pounds is workable, 3,500 is no sweat (unless you are a machinist and you want to take a lathe and milling machine along)

John,
Thanks for your advice. We DID end up getting our current 2007 Adventurer 37B on the W-24 chassis for the extra CCC. Am finally getting back on the forum.....we are READY to go camping in SD!
