Hello from the Great PNW

New to this forum, a new Winnie owner. We upsized so we could fit the whole family still when they come along. Previously we had a Coachmen 340 classic, it has serviced us well for many years. We are hoping for the same with our new purchase.

Plans: As soon as the heat and smoke clear up here from the forest fires,

Cut and buff exterior, either repair decals to good condition or strip and paint stripes.
Doing ECM and TCM computer upgrades--good for 60hp and 70ft lbs of torque along with the Banks intake system. I have the 8.1 and allision trans.
The upgrade is around 695 for both computers---yaa!

Wife is attacking the couch, dinette and window trim by reupholstering them, man that is expensive to have done!!

Then----use it!!

From what I am seeing there is ALOT of great information here and great people giving input...

Thanks for bringing us into this community.

update

We have decided to have the interior professionally done, we chose materials and purchased---$800 and it will cost about $4000 to have all the window dressings, trim pieces, dinette and couch refoamed and recovered. The hardest part I think was cleaning the blinds---wow. Hoping for inaugural usage Oct 20 thru thru the 22nd at the Washington snow show in Puyallup.
