Good choice!

There are many knowledgeable folks here that are happy to help.

On the Fleetwood forum quite a few of us have these vintage Dreams and Eagles.

Welcome, speedman and mrs speedman!

I'm sure you'll love having your coach, and you've come to the right place for experience, help, and support!

The most important things to remember are: 1) know what you don't know, and 2) the only stupid question is the one you don't ask.

Just adding, the "vintage" coaches are very popular these days and can be had for a fraction of when new. I did the same last winter with my 96 Monaco Signature.One of the things that is different with the older coaches , most no longer have support, parts can be difficult without guidance as to where and what you need. I guess we no longer have that factory Tech. to kick around anymore !

Welcome to the MH family. Get that MH out and ASAP and test everything out. Take your time to read the owners manual, if its available. When you have questions reference it first then ask us clarity or help. Trust me you will get lots of help or at least opinions. Get out and enjoy it.
