Our new 2017 Winnebago View 24J Profile

We looked a long time for an RV to move to from our 2014 A-frame pop-up camper.

The 24J View was the shortest motorhome we felt we could spend time in without making each other go crazy.

Picked her up in the second week of August and just returned from a 4500 mile trip from Washington to Kansas and back. We averaged 15.6 mpg despite bucking substantial winds for much of the journey.

10'8" tall, 25'8" long, 7'6" wide and 10,440 pounds loaded, with us in it and the freshwater tank 1/3 full.

We had no real problems with the RV and are still very happy with our floor plan choice.

Thanks. Not sure why I'd need to take it to the shop for anything chassis related after talking to nearly ten owners we met on our recent 4,500+ mile trip. Also not sure how much more expensive it would be over any other diesel chassis. Once the warranty is done, independent shops would be OK to use.
