Finally got another Class A - Sea Breeze 37ft

I already posted in the National RV owners section, but thought I would post here too. For the last couple of years, we've looked at upgrading to another Class A. Although we really enjoy our 36ft 01 Intruder Class A, there were some features it didn't have that we wanted, like more sleeping space, and full body paint (white is hard to keep clean, and was starting to look dated...even on newer coaches).

Aluminum subframe structure, glass-smooth sidewalls and quality interior materials (like solid counters) were a must, as our Damon had all of these. V10 preferred due to ease of maintenance, but I knew that most gassers from 04-10 werent made to the quality level of pushers. After a lot of research, and help from members here, I made a short list of coaches I was interested in. Newmar Mountain Aire, Dutch/Kountry/ Canyon Star, and 05-08 Gulfstream Sunvoyagers were at the top of my list. I wasn't impressed with much else, including newer Damon Intruders. I also was very intrigued with late model Nationals, especially after seeing a couple in person.

After looking at a many rigs in disappointing condition, we were pretty much settled on pulling the trigger on an 04-ish 40ft Dutchstar....then I stumbled across a gem. A late build 08 Sea Breeze LX 37ft with Telecoping slides. One of the very last Nationals made. It has the glass smooth side panels, full paint, 22.5 Alcoas, and sleeps 6 comfortably. So home it came. Overall, we're pleased so far. There's always things that need tweaking, and things you wish your new rig had, but luckily that list is small. I like the color scheme, many assumed it was brand new. It looks just as modern as my relative's 2016 Georgetown

So now we have 2 RVs lol. On it's first trip out, we camped with both it and our Intruder side by side. That made for some bewildered park staff.

The Intruder tagged along too!

Thanks! Labour day was it's first voyage. I'll miss the intruder when it's gone. It's easy to get attached to an RV
