Okay, so it's not new anymore...

This is our first Class A and we love it.
Hopefully the pictures will load so you can see them.
:whistl ing:

It's Fleetwood Bounder 2008 35H model at 36 ft. Ford V-10. We have added steer -safe, and ride rite air bags, they have made a tremendous difference in ride quality, and handling.

The TOAD is a Ford Escape V-6 that has been ATF level certified by our dealer, and the two passengers run the show. Lulu is the big sister, and Teddy is the vocal one, he's on the left

Great looking class A... Best of luck ...

Watch raising the rear of the RV that much and never lift the rear axle off the ground

Are you referring to lifting the rear axle off the ground with the levelers, or otherwise? I assume you mean to prevent damage to airbags, if there are any?

I'd be more concerned about the lack of traction for the park brakes (rear wheels), there is no braking effect from the front wheels when parked like that.

That would be my concern as well.

The rig looks amazing! And by the way, those dogs are absolutely adorable. Now I want one too.

Let me assure each of you that are concerned about the leveling chocks. The rig is not actually raised very much, that is how bad the slope was at that site. It was one of their more level sites too I'm afraid.
The picture was taken from even further down the slope, hence the false imagery.
Thanks to all of you for the compliments. We have enjoyed our coach.

War Eagle KoolBell! You have found a new great way to go to the games. If you have not read Rammer Jammer Yellowhammer (about those pesky Alabama Fans in RVs) I think you will enjoy it.

If you click on the picture to enlarge it.
All the Parking brake RV police, could plainly see both sets of rear duals are still on the ground.
