Our new Fleetwood Providence!!!

After months of research, helpful input from members of iRV2, trips to dealerships, etc., we have found "the one". Meet R'Bus; a 2008 Fleetwood Providence 40X. Flew to North Carolina last week (from South Dakota) and drove it home. What a maiden voyage. It was awesome. Hubby drove it like he had been driving one forever. Love the ride, the view from the navigator seat and everything about it. So excited for our next time out. Can't be soon enough. Thanks to all the members of iRV2 for your assistance with all of our questions.

Congrats! That's a nice looking rig. We recently purchased a 40' rig also, and drove it a long way back home. So we kind of know what you are experiencing right now. Have fun with it!

Darrell and Candace..

Welcome to our group... Believe me...this is the best place to be for questions and answers...

I love your rolling home. We purchased a 2005 Revolution last summer and it is the best!!! I love my Big Baby and now that I am driving it, I love it even more but it scares me more...LOL!!!

Candace...please learn to drive this monster. You need to know know all about this rig and tell your co-pilot that you need to learn everything about it.

Consider atttending rallies and taking part in the driving courses and chatting with other co-pilots for encouragement.

We will be attending the Fleetwood Rally in Indiana in June... think about it...???

Best of Luck and Safe Journeys,

Faith and Bob

Congrats, we bought our 2008 Providence 40e, with the same color scheme as yours last October and just love it. We are heading to Custer and north to Dickinson ND in June. Can't wait.
The journey is the Reward!

Looks like one heck of a unit, I'm sure you won't be able to anything with it other than enjoy it
