Any Rexhall Aerbus Owners Out There?

Hi Everybody,
We are new Class A owners. We just bought a 1994 Rexhall Aerbus 32' which is a step larger than our 23' Winnebago View. We are looking ahead to when we will full time and this length seemed a good way to step up a little larger. Just curious if an Aerbus owner's out there would like to share info with us. Just honest opinions. We're open to hearing the good, the bad, and the ugly about this Model. So all comments appreciated.
Thanks!

Welcome Cindy and Jim,

Owner's clubs are always a good source of info. There are links to the Rexhall owners clubs on the Rexhall website.

There is a site called Rexhall Tips that has a ton of Rexhall specific tips some with pictures and user's comments.

I've heard there is a Rexhall owners Yahoo site as well.

IMHO the most important difference between an Aerbus and other middle of the line RV's is the all welded steel coach framing. It makes it strong as a tank and almost as heavy. Based on tire ratings, my coach is overloaded if I try to haul anything at all. That's why I always use all steel reenforced tires (Michelins).

Assuming your 94 Aerbus has no slides, you may not have the same weight issue.

Good luck and happy trails.

Rexhall Aerbus-2000

We have one that we bought from the factory new, It is our second Rexhall motorhome after having an Airex bought new in 1987 - #105.

We lived in Lancaster CA and had opportunities to tour the factory (also toured the original one in Saugus, CA) and meet with Bill Rex. We have really enjoyed the stability, reliability and quality of the RV.

We nearly bought on '01 last year, but my Boeing conscience couldn't really wrap itself around anything called an Aerbus, even though the spelling is different from our European competitor.

We got an '02 Georgetown instead, similarly equipped, a third of the mileage, 1/5th the hours on the generator and $8000 cheaper!

Happy with Airbus

Hi, I to am new to the Airbus (1998). Had a 1995 Holiday Rambler before.
When I started looking for a newer RV I spotted the Airbus. Never even heard of one before. my wife loved the floor plan right away and said she
thought she could live in this one. It's 35.5ft with a slide, I also go to 'Yahoo groups" for Rexhall owners. It's very helpful. I live in eastern Ohio and I've only had it out for two nights at the KOA in Buckeye Lake,OH

I also have a Rexhall but it's a 1997 Rolls Air A3400. We just bought it this year. It has 25,000 miles and 500 hours on Diesel gen set. So far we like it very much but have little to compare too as our previous RV's were trailers.

Had a 95 XL3000 Arebus, on the F53 chassis, other than some brake issues at around 60,000 miles it was a great coach, the only thing I didn't like was the east/west bed was to close to the back of the coach and had to scoot of the end . Put the complete Banks system on at 29,000 miles when I bought it. Traded it in with 94,000 in 07 when we bought our present coach new.

7,000 miles in 2011 - update.

Just got home from our latest trip with our Aerbus -2000 BSL3550 - and am very pleased with the new tires I bought. I had 12 year old Goodyear G159's which came on it new- and yes, that was WAY TOO OLD to trust. I did the research, checked the forums, and most recommend the latest Goodyears of G670 or G647 at $3,000. I have a good friend who sells several major brands, and he put my on Firestone FS560 plus. At $2,100 for six, I saved enough for a trip accross the country (one way)

The Firestones are so superior to the Goodyears that it was a real joy to drive. It rides smoother, steers straighter and easier, and handles very well in heavy rain. I say smooth riding, but there are parts of I-40 (Aarkansas, Oklahoma) that the word smooth is NOT in the dictionary- - -(thanks obama for the shovel ready road projects)
