2014 Winnebago Adventurer

We purchased our 2014 Winnebago Adventurer 35P at the Camping World/Good Sam rally in Atlanta. It is our 4th Winnebago and we really like it.

The DW likes the stackable washer/dryer and the king size sleep number bed. We both like the 4 door refrigerator with ice maker.
The full body paint looks great and is easy to maintain with Protect-All. The infotainment system with Rand McNally RV GPS built in is great along with the side cameras mounted on the side view mirrors. It awhile to get used to all the electronics in the coach but I think I have it now.

I am a die hard Winnebago guy and this coach didn't disappoint me even with the few problems I had.

Just bought the 38Q. Couldn't agree more. Just the usual new rig issues. Mostly fit and finish. Plus..a water leak and leveler failure. All being fixed now. Stackable W/D has made DW very happy. Easy for me to use too but, she gets nervous when I try to be domestic. I feel that "good enough is good enough" in that regard. Guess that's not up to her standards. Also have the residential fridge. Wasn't sure about that but we liked the overall floor plan so much we bought in anyway. After a 1000 mile trip under our belt, the large fridge was truly a luxury. Lots of ice and cold water dispenser. New problem of having to buy more groceries so things aren't flying around in there. Got regular curtain rods for containment purposes. Work well. Happy trails......

Great coaches you guys,

We are in the 7th year of ownership of our Sightseer 35-J and it has been great. I can't say enough good things about Winnebago and their support. How does the 38-Q ride? Just curious, happy camping!

Traded an '05 Pusher in on it so not sure what to compare it with. Never had a gas Class A before. Thought I would miss the air ride but so far...ok. Have to say it is just different in handling characteristics vs a DP. Only thing we have noticed is how loud that V10 is when pushing it a little (or a lot). I understand that it is the nature of the beast but, with the engine in front of me.....I'm sure the DP was as loud or louder but the engine was behind us. May look into extra sound proofing under the doghouse. Though...if that was a good idea, Ford/Winnebago would have already done it, I think.

I found the faster you drive the harder it is to drive. 65-70 is a good speed but sometimes I want to get home and push it and it is really hard to drive at 75. Seems like I have to be more alert. At 65 it drives itself. I make the wife drive 65 and when she is napping I push the heck out of it.

I have gotten used to the V10's noise and it hardly bothers me anymore. We've only had gas coaches up to now so we've never known anything different. Most of our driving out west is flat terrain with an occasional mountain climb. The only thing I'm tempted to do is the "cheap handling fix" on the front and a rear stabilizer but I doubt I'll get around to those anytime soon- it's pretty good for how we use the rig right now. Thanks for the feedback and happy camping!

When I bought mine I noticed every once in while a loud noise would come from the rear end. First thing I thought of was rear end. My bushings were gone and it turned out to be a really easy project and I have had many back surgeries. Going to the mailbox is a project for me.
