3 years ago we left the fiver and purchased our first A Class. First 6 months were a disaster as some of you may remember. The manufacturer stepped up, took the unit back to factory and made everything right. Next 2.5 years were flawless, not one problem. It would make sense that the unit we just purchased was a new Triple E Commander. Near same floor plan, went up 1.5 feet in length to 36.5 and went with the W24 Workhorse. Of course we have some new options like Alcoa's, sound surround and electric awnings. I hope we have the same reliable coach. We did look at a Pace Arrow 37C which was a little cheaper, but decided the quality that we were used to was just not there. Still at dealers about 200 miles away and I can't get it due to bad road conditions.

Westies,
Congratulations on your new coach. I know from first hand experience how well EEE's are built and much like your experience will vouch for the fact the company stands behind its product 100%.
Safe miles!
Canuck

Well the time has come...........Leaving in the morning to finally pick up the new coach. After all the units over the years the thrill of a new RV is still there.

It will be hard to get good sleep tonight. Don't let the excitment diminish your diligence during the walk-thru.

Congrats on the new MoHO.

Chet,
EEE's only manufacturing facility is located in a little town called Winkler, Manitoba which is about a one hour drive from the provincial capital, Winnipeg.
Winkler is in the southern part of the province about a 45 minute drive away from the Canada/US border.

Made it home with new coach without any problems. I had my walk through list which consisted of some 2-1/2 pages. I know the service manager from previous deals and I sent him the list and told him I will do the walk through by myself as I was familiar with the new coach as I had traded in a 2003 Triple E Commander. On my walk through I found one screw loose that prevented the front cutrains from closing. The front furnace would not work at first but after purging the system it worked. The surround sound stereo had a squeal but that was only due to my error and after tech showed me procedure, there was no problem. Finally dealer was not happy with starter battery so they replaced that. A most enjoyable experience with exceptional dealer.

They are made in Canada in a city called Winkler which is about and hours drive from my home in Winnipeg. There is a dealer network in Canada from coast to coast but I'm not sure of how many dealers and where they are located in the USA. They have dealer locator on their web site. Type your zip and they tell you the closest dealer(s).

I'm not up on the prices as I haven't been in the market for a new moho for a few years. Maybe one of the other forum members can let us know if they've been active in the market.
