Meanwhile, we're putting in a bunch of mod's we'd planned to get to over the next couple of years... since we have the time NOW. lol.
We spent full year and a half on a Thor site. Really great people, but we never could find a Thor that could pass our PDI; which ironically was provided by the Thor owners. We had basically ignored Winnebago because we wanted new and it was perceived to us as too much relative to the cost of Thors (Hurricane/Winsport). We bought the 2019 Sunstar 29VE out of Florida last year and could not be any happier. We have no plans to full time, but we drive the RV most everywhere we go when visiting etc. It is oversized SUV to us
My favorite mod was the AGS EC-30, I had the dealer install and they are still working some tweaks; but I just love it. The Safe T Stabilizer is a pain to align but it is probably the most important Mod we have have made. My only view of Winnebago misses on 29VE were no outside on/off switch for the gas water heater. If you winterize, I don't trust remembering to not turn on inside the coach, and for the Euro Loft, whenever we would lower the loft, and then later raise it; it would always catch on that D clamp for seat belt. I was afraid it would eventually do some serious damage if a person raising was not aware that it binded everytime. I modified both and neither are issues anymore.
