New Member with 42GD


We're the current owners of a 2013 Winnie Tour 42GD.

My wife and I purchased it in December 2016 when we traded in our 2005 Winnie Journey.

Wow, what a nice chassis! It's the longest RV we've every owned but it drives absolutely the best of any RV that we've ever owned. So it's been a good purchase.

The Aqua-Hot system is new to us and we're still getting used to it. Why did Winnie mount the suction filter under the coach in the middle of the chassis? I understand why it works well there, next to the fuel tank and it fits, but it's not a convenient place to get to for maintenance. Other than that we've been very happy with the design, layout, and build quality of the RV.

We're retired and enjoy taking short trips. Someday we hope to travel out west or to the northeast.

Thank you,

Mike Stiffler
