New Winnie Vista LX

My wife and I are newbies to this forum and we just made the leap from campers to motorhome (part timers for 5 yrs, full time after that) owners. Just bought a new one and we are so excited to begin our new adventures. Any thing we should look for with our new addition? We got one with the g in the middle of the vin # so I had read previously that was something to look for in the upgraded model this year. Anything else, good , bad, or indifferent?I appreciate and value the opinions of you all and your experiences. Thanks and glad to be aboard

Sorry I can't answer your question, perhaps someone else can. Safe travels in your new coach.

one thing i always recommend on any gasser is a rear trac bar. They aren't very expensive and really help from the tail wagging especially if you pull a vehicle.

Few more things to at least consider, a steering stabilizer, a tire pressure monitoring system, and the 5 star tune.

Finally if you get lots of rocking that makes you uneasy you might consider the cheap handling fix discussed in depth on these forums.

Don't do that right away, but if you have handling issues sometimes doing that simple fix can solve it.

be prepared for some warranty issues.. every MH has them right out of the gates unfortunately. A lot of times they are so minor that it's best to just wait until you have a handful of issues to take it in for the work.

Don't get too bummed out about it though once all the kinks are worked out you should have lots of worry free travel ahead. Winnebago overall makes a good product.

Check out the Ford Chassis section. CHF (Cheap Handling Fix) will go a long way toward any wandering/wallowing sensations. Don't bother reading all 10 gazillion posts, just enough to get a sense of what it entails. Be sure to skim through the other posts for other good info. Also, check out the Winnebago forum HERE for WGO specific issues. I have an 2010 WGO Vista 30W and have found lots of useful info about WGO motorhomes. Keep in mind that many (most?) appliances and systems are the same across the WGO brand.

Congratulations! A great choice. And welcome to the forum. The only requirement for a new motorhome is get it out the driveway and down the road. Happy and safe motoring.
