Our first "Pusher"

Hey everyone. I decided to post a few pics of my own of our rig we bought last month. We've travel trailers and gas coaches before but this is our first diesel pusher and we love it so far. It's a 2000 Winnebago Journey 36G with about 39K miles on it. I've spent the past month getting everything just right and will be taking it with the guys to Myrtle Beach for a golf weekend get away next weekend. Everyone is excited.

Thanks to you all for the help with questions so far I've posted. This is a great site with good people. Any past or present owners of this rig...tips and/or advice is welcome.

Congratulations, In my book you have picked the best manufacturer. If you need tech support they are the best. You can call them for any questions you might have and they will help you. I would not have any other brand and I have driven them all.

Congrats on the coach, looks really nice.

Good luck on the trip to MB. We are located off 501, by the Burning Ridge course.

Where will you be staying for you golf week end. Hope the weather holds for you and the group

Thanks guys. Golf trip was great. Well, at least on Friday. It rained all day Saturday. Stayed inside had a few drinks and played poker. It was a great trip. Revolutions is the best Myrtle Beach club by far. After asking permission, stayed in Holiday Inn's parking lot that night directly across from Broadway at the Beach. No worries about a DD when you're parked 300 feet from the club. Good times.

Great Coach Lee, in fact we liked it so much that we bought one just like it. We take ownership on Saturday and we are looking forward to wherever the road takes us...good luck!

Nice coach Lee. On our second MH both Winnebagos. The first was a Minnie that had the same cabinets, upholstery and colors as yours. Just not so many

We also know the DD song. Took her to our Union's clambake every year so no worries of how many drafts washed down the clams. The owner seemed happy to give us permission rather than have one of us drive. One year even after getting permission a rental sheriff kind of hassled us. When we called the following year again to make sure it was OK the guy in charge of the security there said "I will take care of that" and we never heard a thing.

BTW one thing we found out after getting the DP is all of Winnebago's cabinets have a sticker on them. Check inside one of the doors. If you ever need a replacement just write down the number on it and give Winnebago a call. They tell us their cabinetry shop can make you a new one.

Hey, that is a great suggestion on the DD. Last thing you need to do is have one of these rigs being DUI.
