Yesterday was the big day to go to Chehalis and pick up our new 2007 36 FDTS Alpine Coach at 1-5 Uhlmann RV.

We had decided it would be easier to empty out our 2005 40 FDQS into our daughter's garage in Hubbard (we've been parked in their driveway) rather then do it at the dealers. That way we could clean as we went. It's a good thing as it rained almost all day -- it would have been miserable packing stuff back and forth.

I am VERY pleased with the staff at Uhlmann's. They are very knowledgable and friendly. The usual gremlins hit. The transfer case started making wierd noises just as we arrived. They very quickly changed it out. There also began a small leak on the rear slide by the bathroom sink which they promptly sealed as well.

The two hour trip back to our daughter's went well. Forry is extremely pleased with the way it corners.

Today we started put everything into the new coach that we had taken out of the old one. With three feet less of coach, there is also less storage space! The washer/dryer is in the hallway in front of the toilet room on the floor which makes for another space for hanging clothes in the cupboard above. We actually have more wardrobe space then in the 40.

We'll start loading the Smart Beds tomorrow. It's going to be so nice not to have to get down on our knees!

Our experience at Uhlmann's has been very postive also and they are only fifty miles from us. We plan on going in to their new location this weekend and see what it looks like.
Good luck on your new Alpine Coach!

I took my coach in on Saturday for work scheduled this week. There were some folks ther who were moving out of their previous Alpine into their new one. Didn't get a chance to chat but I's sure they were HAPPY campers. Went in yesterday and picked up my rig. They had done a great jog. Explained what they did and answered all our questions. While there, saw Steve and Virginia's coach, plus an '08 that looked like it was ready for pick-up. Uhlmann's is having a Grand Opening starting on the 16th so,Begale RC, if you can, perhaps delaying a week would be good. Tours, give aways and, the RV'rs favorite food.

Yep, ours is down getting some minor fixes (I hope). Pulled the wire loose from the aux plug on the dash (trying to block the area off so the cats didn't try to find a hiding place up under)and the other problem was the air bags weren't filling properly - looks like that may be the air dryer - so that will go to Cummins down the street as soon as Clayton gets the word that parts are available --- Uhlmanns has been doing all our repairs since we purchased the coach - the service dept. knows us on sight - LOL - (that may be a bad or good depending on how you look at it) - and they are always friendly and helpful - an excellant crew - anyway - getting the rig ready for the run to the Home Coming Rally in Yakima. It will be our first Rally so we are looking forward to it.

We have a local club campout @ Midway RV Park in Centralia, Wa. this weekend so we will have to go into see Uhlmann's new place while we are up there. Living this close I hear a lot of good things about their operation.
I hope all of you can make it to Home Coming Rally in Yakima. Larry & Barbara and Jamie and Donna do a great job of hosting these rallies.
