Traded my Jayco Class C for a new Adventurer 38J
Love it so far, only drove it about a 100 miles.
Purchased it in Tucson AZ where we are staying for the winter. Leaving for Mich. tomorow (home). Should be a good test for the new rig.

Congrats on the new rig. I'm sure you are going to love the 38J. With the W24 chassis it should be a great RV. Enjoy it!

Be sure to visits IRV2's Winnebago forum if you have any specific questions that you run into when learning about your new RV.

Glad you found us. We had Minnie Winnie and really enjoyed it, but is was a bit small. Sure bet you enjoy the big one.

Jim,
Congrats on the new rig. That is the exact model I am looking at for my next MH. Did you get the j-lounge?? Did you opt for the full body paint? Good luck and have fun.

Hi Jonny, No we didn't get the j-lounge but I did opt for the full body paint. In Colo. Springs right now on our way home to Mich.
Hit some very high winds and steep grades and the rig handled very well.

Jim Rochette,

Congratulations and many safe miles travelling. You'll love the W24 chassis. Don't know how you reacted but going from my old MH to the W24 the first time I went under an overpass I felt like ducking

Excellent choice for a motorhome if I do say so myself.

Congratulations on your new rig! I really do like that triple slide floorplan. And full body paint too! It is amazing how far the Adventurer has come over the years.

Here's wishing you many trouble free miles and great adventures to boot! As the others have said you'll love the Workhorse chassis.
