The trim tab shocks are good and the big old heavy girl will do 37 MPH.
I'm pulling it up front tomorrow to get it ready for sale.....second happiest day. Future boats will be rentals.

Why did I buy a class a mh? Ever since I was a child I was always fascinated with these and told myself I'd be buying one someday. It was my dream. I would stare at them while our dad drove us (three boys) in our cars to go camping and just admire them. While sleeping at campsites either in a tent or a cabin I would always be dreaming and thinking about my MH that I would have someday. I finally got one and its almost paid for, lol. There is no better way for camping IMHO. Dreams do come true folks. Thankfully I live in a state that doesn't tax it like a home. Just saying. Tks for letting me vent. /Mikey

when ever we visit a rv park... some of the coaches would take 8 hrs just to load up the junk on the patio
If I ever drive into a place like that, just shoot me.

At 36' our Class A limits us at times when it comes to staying in some remote parks, and a few of the less traveled roads that offer pristine scenery. The upside is room for storage and living space. If you choose your RV parks well and your routes to desired destinations a Class A makes for a relaxed and comfortable experience. I'm over 60. I don't sleep in tents anymore and even the best of cots aren't comfortable. I can still cook over a campfire, or sit around it to keep warm after dark while sipping a whiskey or two with friends, or folks I've just met. The wife is happy with it so that makes it all the better for me. Class A's are the way to go IMHO.

I got my first one to be a tow vehicle for the motorcycle trailer. I wanted a big block for the hills and got the shortest I could find. Then I started racing the dog also (yes it is a disease ).

I wish the new one could have been shorter but I REALLY wanted two air conditioners and finding a short used one with dual air was hard. During dog racing we are inside all day and it was easy to cool in the evening with one. During bike racing I come in ringing wet and one air conditioner on the pavement in the pits will just not keep up with the Alabama sun. Still ironing bugs out of it (used '03) but am looking forward to extorting my fellow riders for A/C access this summer

More room & no more wet tent

Stacy and I started out in a tent back in 1981, moved to a camper shell, rented a popup and moved to a truck camper. All the while when we would be at a gas station traveling we would see the class "A's" fueling up. We would look at each other and say" One of these days" Well last year we bought our "new to us class A" ,Quite a step up from our Lance cabover truck camper. WOW! when we got it home,rolled out the slides and sat on the sofa we just couldn't keep from grinning. We could have put the old lance in the living area if it was turned sideways. All the way to the Grand canyon last year we would look over at each other and grin. Hell Yeah check another one off the bucket list, life is good!
So I guess the reason was for"more room" and "weather isn't a factor any more". Even better we have a son to travel with us along with our fur baby Dutch. We are truly blessed, thank you Lord!
Hopefully 2 more years and 80 points we will be hitting the road for extended time periods. Hope to meet some of Y'all on the road.
Mike

Hi all, my first post here. Have been watching this forum for about a year and have gained some very valuable info. The wife and i are retired we had always wanted a motor home and bought a class c because we thought it fit our wants and needs. It was a nice unit, but it didn't take long to realize wasn't for us. The dogs didn't even like it. So about a year ago we started looking and we tried several models and finally bought a National Dolphin 36 ft. We are so happy with this unit and even the dogs are more comfortable. This spring i installed a residential reefer and just waiting for good weather to go.
