Congrats on the new rig...sounds like both were good choices, which can sometimes be the hardest decisions to make. Best of luck to you!

Congrats on your new coach. I'm sure you will get many, many happy miles out of it. Be sure to register it on the Winnebago site as a second owner. No special benefits other than notifications from Winnebago of any issues. You might want to explore their website for tons of information on the coach.

To answer your question, yes it was my wife's choice. Before I start another thread, maybe you can help me with my next question. What is the max towing capacity of my Adventurer 35B? I need to pull either a 2006 Jeep Commander or a Honda Civic.

Thanks Again--Edwin

You probably have a sheet attached to a wall somewhere in a closet with your GCWR. Mine was on the wall in the double closet in the bedroom. I found mine is 26000#
I have weighed my 35U ready to go and I am at just over 18000#. That leaves me with lots of room (8000#) but don't really want to go there. I tow a 97 Ford F150 at about 4800# and if I use my machine to lift my 84 Aspencade into the back of the truck, I get to about 5900#. I use a brake buddy in the truck and have a 8500# tow bar. I towed the truck empty from Vancouver Island to Arizona and California this year and had no problem. I must admit that I upgraded the hitch on the MH as I did not like how light it was. (the main tube did not go thru the side supports) with that hitch I believe Winnebago says hitch weight cannot exceed 300#, even though mine said 500# right on the hitch. The V10 has enough power, the concern is more with braking in the mountains. You should be good with either of those vehicles if they can be towed 4 down.

My wife picked mine too, but it was mutual. Rig runs well and true on the highway

Good selection.
We purchased our 2001 Winnebago Adventurer 32V about 1 1/2 yrs ago.
~45,000 mi and we have NOT found anything that has an interior set up like this one.
The quality and workmanship is far above anything we have looked at.

I suggest that you check out the rear sway bar bushings.
The factory rubber ones seem to fall apart quickly. I replaced mine with the more stable polyurethane ones and the ride was much, much better. The front bushings were OK, so didn't do anything there.
Pics are attached.

Also, You probably have a 3-way switch on your dash for the coach heater fan. Be sure to check this to ensure it works in both Hi and Lo positions. If it does not work in both positions, please email me for more information.

I had a Jeep Wrangler as a toad but recently upgraded to a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I will be installing the base plate today. I don't expect that the additional 1,000 lbs towing will be a big issue as long as I adjust my driving to my new toad.

Enjoy your new MH and if you have any questions, please contact me. I'll be glad to share my knowledge and experience.

Regards,
Paul
