Damn!! that's a great rig to start with...most of us started out with older rigs and worked out way up. Or least the others have I'm still in my old A. The leavelers are a must. Put a few bucks back each month and get you some installed. There is nothing like pulling in and droping the leavelers and being done with all of that part. Plus you will notice just walking around in your rig how much better it feels being "solid" on the ground. No biggie, enjoy and Happy Trails....

Very nice looking rig. Congrats also. I'm not a big fan of slides too. I just have one medium size one on my rig. Get levelers. You'll love them. My old Allegro had the swing down HWH ones. Don't get those if you can avoid them. The straight kind that don't pivot I think would be less problematic. If they can put that kind on your rig.
MN is home for now.

Congrads, and welcome to the site. We are on our 2 nd Windsport, this one is 35' with 3 slides. We just added Koni shocks, rear trac bar and most important front safe-T-plus. The Safe-T-plus took 90% of the big truck problem out. We love the Windsport and the Ford v10 engine. Also very important, load your coach and get it weighed. We went to a Pilot and used the CAT scale. Coach front and rear came under the 22,000 lbs. Michelin tire chart calles for 80 lbs all around. We had 100 lbs thinking that was what we needed.

Enjoy the outings and hope to see you on the road someday.
What is considered "routine maintenance?"

Nice Rig!

Love those Windsport/Hurricane 30-footers!

I think "no slides" is a cool little feature!

1st: No mechanical issues to deal with...EVER! ;-)
2nd: You can pull into a place, put er' in park, and get to work w/out having to open the slides for any reason w/out possibly waking the neighbors! :-)

I agree w/everyone else...Get the levelers!
