Thumbs up


Just picked mine up a week ago. Still trying to get everything put away. We had a 1998 McKenzie 32RKT 33'.

First of all it tows alot easier than my old rig, 200 hundred miles on all kinds of roads (freeway, mountains, 8% grades and sharp corners). The larger basement is wonderful. DW wanted a big kicthen she is pleased. We stopped at a truck stop on I5. The wife had fed and watered the cat while we ate. We drove about a mile when the wife remembered that she had left a tall water glass full of water on the floor of the kitchen. I pulled over on to the shoulder at the next exit expecting to have our first mishap, but the glass of water never moved or spilled a drop. I was impressed.

The only problem is the lack of storage in the bedroom. I ordered a 5 drawer 13" deep chest to go to the right of the foot of the bed against the wall near the door. Also the bedroom slideout is lower than the McKenzie and I have wacked my head on top of the slide a couple of times. I will get use to that. I knew that when I went to a mid-profile unit.

Overall I'm very happy with the new rig.
