Our upgrade...

From a 97 36' Dolphin gasser to a '04 HR Endeavor 40PDQ. Love it more every trip out! Found this on a consignment lot in Spokane Vly. Washington while on a trip to Montana. Always looking for an up-grade and BAM!! there it was saying ''Take me". An '04 with only 15k mi. and not a live in so it wasn't beat up and pretty much perfect condition..was priced under market and when they offered us $10k over what we paid (used, had it for two years) for the Dolphin it was kinda a no-brainer....
1st pic was last night in the Dolphin in Cour du Lane ID. befor picking up the HR. 2nd was 1st night in HR in valley of the rouge Or. on the way home. The last two were after getting home and cleaned up after it rained 2/3rds of the way home.Had it for a year now.

Just needs some more blue on her Nice not too busy paint on your new unit. But they need more blue So what's the story, Cummins, CAT? Does she like to wander all over the road, slow to 25 goin' up hill? Easy to make a 3-point turn in your driveway? :P Enjoy your new home. Keep good care of her, she wants you to feed her. Oh and you can pull up to flying J hover over the DEF fill, shake your head and say nah.

I like it looks great and nice and shiny. 3 or 4 slides? How about a few shots on the interior?
Thanks, Tim

The story is; 350 Cummins/allison of course. Does not wander at all and handles very well even in high winds. Wind blew like hell on the way home with it in the columbia gorge through Oregon. Rain too ,felt very secure. The Dolphin was the scary one on the GM chassis.Coach has never dropped to under 45 mph on grades and most of the time that was because i got trapped in behind a truck and cars wont let you out. I didnt feel safe at all in the Dolphin and wouldn't let the wife drive it. Feel totally safe letting the wife drive this Roadmaster Chassis. Turns easier than the gasser. all in all a definite win win upgrade!!!

WOW WOW & WOW love the interior very bright. I wish ours had a bedroom. That's the only thing I don't like on ours. Gosh that's nice. Enjoy it
Thanks for the interior shots, Those are almost more important than the outer shots I think.
Thank you, Tim

Opps, I had to come back, sorry I really like the carpet also. Not one for the other type's of flooring, they just seem cold. Our kitchen @ the S&B is the only room in our whole house that isn't carpeted.
