Over The Moon!

We just purchased this 2005 Pace Arrow 37C. We previously had a fifth wheel that we thoroughly enjoyed, but feel so blessed to be able to make this purchase. I've been adding my own personal touches.... Taking it for a quick overnight tomorrow (couldn't take the whole weekend due to our kids baseball game...lol)

Any tips or pointers on going from a fifth wheel to a motor home are appreciated! Definitely sacrificed some storage, and packing lightly is not my specialty, so that'll be my biggest challenge.

It's a beauty. Congratulations.

When we moved from the 5th wheel to our motor home my wife was amazed at the increase in storage space. Things that used to be stored in the living area could go into the full basement freeing up cabinets.

Enjoy your new coach

from NH. When we switched from a 5er we gained space and never looked back. Enjoy your season, safe travels.

You will really enjoy those two big windows in the hallway if you like getting a suntan indoors. we tinted all our windows and installed levolor aluminum micro mini blinds which helps very much.

Very good choice, looks like it is new. I suggest you add something to the china cabinet door handles when driving so a big motion at a driveway does not cause everything to hit the deck, ask me how we know!

Thanks! I have a child safety lock that straps around the handles while we drive
