Excellent choice of trailer. I have the 2003 model. You will love it. Curious, is it true they come with 16" wheels now?

OK, since you started this, I'm in!

Should we allow the other WW owners or just restrict this to SLC owners? I have a feeling Mike isn't going to go for the 2nd option.

2005, lets see, does it have the bedroom slide? How do you like the steps up to the bathroom?

We are going to Austin, Texas this weekend, thought I might stop in at Funtime RV and see if they have any of the new ones to look at. Course, that could get expensive if we liked it.

Enjoy your new trailer!

Curious as to what the 3705 is going for these days. I bought mine at the Pomona RV show from Giant RV for $36K.

Sounds about right. I paid about the same loaded with all the options including the winch and reinforced door and floor with bay windows and 5.5 onan/36 gal pump station/5k tiedowns and extra sofa/dinettes in the rear. And a fine trailer it is although there is a few things I wish they would change. If I keep mine long enough I'll change them myself. The kitchen faucet is the biggie, needs to have a higher snout so you can put a pan under it. The mini blinds need to be upgraded and the dump valves need to be located better so you can get to the black water valve. Course, the bedroom slideout would be nice too.

I know, just never satisfied.

They have changed the kitchen faucet to a nice large on that you can pull out, kinda like what we have in our kitchen here in the house. We do have the bedroom slide out and a bathroom the size of Texas..
They still have the freaking 15" tires but with 3 axles, i'm not worried. My axles have alreay been flipped.
The big differance in ours is that it has a lot of custom items that was installed for someone else but they didn't finish the deal?????
We have the garage and the penthouse suite. Only 1 bench seat/bed and 2 chairs with the table in between them.
Aviator's lady went to circit city tonight and got us a new Zenith 17" wide screen TV/Monitor that will flip down right under where WW had the TV going. We are going to make that spot the liquor cabinet.
We came in right around 39k for what I think is a good deal.
Catch ya'll later.

I don't know Sean, after looking at the price quotes and the amount of weight I feel much better, think the fever is going away.

And who dug up this old thread, now I'm in trouble all over again!

Hummmm...now I see it's an oldie!! Hummm...that someone is our fearless leader! Doggone 'em! He really is gettin nostalgic on us, ain't he?

OK...so the SLC fever has subsided, but you still have the LE fever on its way- I think it could be just one of those general types that just begs 'ya to get anythingnew...watch out.

its called boogie fever or something like that

i just thought it would be fun to relive a day we were having here a couple years ago, when SLC fever was gripping the crowds. that week reminded me of this week, what with LE fever seemingly getting into a lot of people's bloodstream.

and i have an idea. everyone out here grabs one or two applications for employment from good places around you, and we fax them to Tom. One less guy in OK and one more guy out here. how soon can you be packed Tom?

and nap-boy, today is cheap spagetti night at the FatDog-corral. pretty soon i'll pile my little gang into the ol' F350 and we drive the couple miles up the road to spagetti heaven family restaraunte served by the 4 sisters who grew up on daddie's farm. and that aint no lie. ohhh, and they serve a 'White Russian' at the bar that if you have a couple, you don't have to wash your socks for week.
