We have a 2010 Mirada 35dfs which we purchased in April 2010.
DW had a larger oven installed and a stacked washer & dryer (hook-ups were already there). I had a steering stabilizer and rear track bar installed before we even took delivery.
DW wants to be able to wash and dry at her convenience and bake something larger than a 9"x9" pan of brownies.
I'm very familiar with the F53 chassis and its handling problems when the unit is over 30'. Our unit is printed as a 35 footer, however, measured from bumper to bumper it's 37'.
We upgraded from a 07' four winds C to an 08' HR Neptune. We traded the HR for the 2010 Mirada because its lighter, more room, 1 & 1/2 baths and a whole lot more maneuverable. I like the V10 and the 5 speed transmission.
DW loves the interior layout. The kitchen area is not a slide annnnd, she loves the rear bath. We're having a lot of fun with it with no problems as of yet.
I've been retired 9yrs & DW is retiring this July and then, WE ARE GONE
$5.00+ gas or not
Whatever you purchase, enjoy it. That's what it's all about......
