Our 2nd Class A - 09 Destination 37g

It happened to me again! Every new Travel Trailer of Motorhome that I have gotten has always started with a trip to the Parts or Service Department of our RV Dealer.

This time I took our 99 Adventurer 34V in to have a levelling jack problem checked and while I am in the Service Department my wife is walking through Motorhomes. I figured that she would look at the used ones (she did), but I found her inside this 2009 Winnebago Destination 37G. We had always talked about possibly getting a new motorhome, but it was going to be a 34 foot. I like that length.
The 37G has a very nice layout, two slides, living and bedroom. Living room slide is not as deep as the 34V, but most of the new ones aren't. I went through the usual, "this ia a nice Motorhome, the layout is nice, it is 37 feet and probably WAY over our budget." Then she showed me the price. This new 2009 had been at the dealer for almost a year and they had drastically reduced the price. Needless to say it fit the budget.
Now I am trying to get use to the three extra feet, but boy, it sure drives nicer than that 99.

That front end looks just like mine (2008 - 39W). Don't forget that with that King Dome antenna on top the 12' 4" specifications probably don't apply. Measure and be sure.

Nice lifestyle change.

Mike & Amber. Check PPL web site. I saw one just like mine with 3400 miles and a low, low price tag.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Congratulations on the new rig and remember in the future to avoid taking the wife with you to the Parts or Service Department.

Same thing happened to me when I took my 03 Suncruiser in for genset work and left with a 2007 Tour DP.

Good luck!

Congratulations on your new ride. Looks very nice.

We purchased a new to us 23 foot Winnebago in October. Really liked it but not the part of climbing into the bunk over the cab. We spotted wife's brother and his wife at the RV dealer in April and stopped in. Fell in love with a 30 footer with a real bed. Put the 23 on Craigslist, had a buyer in 2 hours, made $7500 more than I paid for it and bought the 30 footer. Wife won't let me go back into the showroom any more.
