Well we did it. Traded up from our TT to a GS Independence. Its a brandy new 2007 hold over and all warrenties apply. Built on a Ford chassis F53 and it 33 ft in length. Mod # is 8333. Its alot more than our TT so I guess I have to spend sometime with the Service an tech manuels
Note: Time to upgrade my Signature

I am sure you will have many new adventures in your new MH. Betty and I made the transition a few years ago and have no regrets.

Congrats Camperc.....We went from a trailer to a MH in 2004 and only wish we had made the move sooner. Enjoy.
