2012 AC Revolution

I added a stainless front piece from the 2013 Rev, not really to fool anyone, I just liked the look.

I've been looking around for a 2010 Tradition and they are very hard to come by. I love my 2006 but my wife and I both like the full wall slide, mid coach tv and residential fridge. Tradition is a very nice model and we won't look at anything else. Don't know if you brought from an individual or dealer but I hope you have someone around to help explain all the systems and nuances. Travel safely and enjoy!

Thanks for the kind words Longweekends...
Yes, in our 2 year search it was apparent that 2009, 2010, 2011 model years in general are few and far between, low production numbers I suppose. We initially focused on an Eagle, however, for us the difference in features, versus the difference in price, made the Tradition the better value. We bought it private, from the original owners directly. They have been great in helping us learn about all the features systems and care of the coach. They continue to be most helpful. Safe Travels to you as well...

We recently bought a 2001 Eagle 40 US....runs and drives great. It has the 370 HP ISL with exhaust brake. We tow a choice of a 199 Jeep Cherokee or our 2008 GMC Sierra 1/2 ton with our RZR in the back.

Just purchased a 2008 Revolution 40E LE. Can't find the remote to control the remote spotlight. Any one know where you could order a replacement? Will probably have a number of questions from current owners regarding this new coach. We owned a different brand diesel pusher before and the systems in this coach are very similar. One thing I am wondering about is the Energy Management System. I really never had to do much with our previous system. Everything was pretty much automatic. I plugged our Revolution in to shore power by way of a heavy duty extension chord at home and the coach didn't appear to have any shore power. The gauges didn't read anything showing power available or, circuits energized. Is there something in particular that needs to be done with the Revolution to activate the EMS?

2006 American Heritage 45E

A great thread with a lot of VERY nice American Coaches and good times!!
We enjoy our 2006 American Heritage tremendously! We have put over 8,000 miles on it since buying it in March. Here is a pic from a couple of weeks ago in Breckenridge, CO. Also, pics from Sturgis, SD in Aug., Hilton Head, SC in July, and one getting ready for take off!

Looking forward to our next trip!

Trailer contents to date are a 2010 Honda CRV, 2009 HD CVO Road Glide, 2003 HD Anniversary Fat Boy, 1965 BMW R69S, Yamaha Golf Cart, 4 Bicycles, Golf Clubs, and tools/cleaning supplies to keep all of these machines running and looking good!
The Breckenridge location is Tiger Run Resort. It is on 9 Hwy about 4 miles North of Breckenridge. We have been here several times now and love it. The end of Sept., first of Oct. is incredible with the "turning of the Aspens". We ride bicycles and there is a paved trail along 9 Hwy from Breckenridge to I-70, then you can get on another trail and ride over Vail Pass to Vail.

Hi Dennis, I believe I commented on your Heritage when you bought it and showed it off on here back in March, I said it then and I will say it again........that is one great look-in Coach! Love the color's. Glad to see and hear you are enjoying it so much! Love the "Take off" feature of your Coach........want them on the next one. Do you take your stacker with you all the time? Any troubles with parking it? How about in Hilton Head Island? Safe travels to ya........

Nice to hear from you palehorse89! Absolutely I remember you and your kind comments back when I first joined this site. And, that we both shared the passion for our 2000 Mountain Aires!
I actually miss ours and know the people that purchased it are enjoying it.

We have only pulled the stacker a few times. Generally we are pulling our Honda CRV. When we went to Hilton Head I had to find a storage facility on the mainland for the trailer. The 2 RV parks can't accomadate 75' or have a place to unhook and store the trailer. It was kind of a hassle the first time but know what to do when we head there in Jan.

Thanks once again for your comments!
