You are probably having buyers remorse. You'll be fine. you have the good warranty. Your going to find stuff wrong. I recently purchased a 2014 diesel pusher and still working out the bugs. Just have fun with it. the Cheapest insurance I found was Progressive through USAA.

Please post some pictures of your new baby, everyone LOVES pictures !!!
WOW!! It has been a couple of months, hasn't it??

We did get a few trips in so far. Two were semi-local weekend trips, and a few weeks ago, we drove our Winnie from NJ to TN!! On the way to TN and on the way back, we stayed at a campground in Staunton, VA. We pulled a utility trailer with 2 Honda scooters, besides!! With the addition of our self-installed Rear View Safety wireless camera, we didn't have to worry about what was going on behind us while we were driving! Best $300 we've ever spent.

I've got to say that we didn't have an ounce of trouble with the RV itself. We even had to sit through THREE HOURS worth of traffic to go FOURTEEN miles coming out of Pigeon Forge, TN, to get to the interstate to head home.

I still have some buyer's remorse only because of the amount of money spent...but I can't wait to get back in my "second home" again to see where the next journey takes us!

We put 6 new tires on our '06 forty footer right away.

$7,000 installed.


This is not a cheap hobby, but fun!

Yikes, did the shop do a whole bunch more than just tires mounted and balanced?

New here as well, just bought my first MH (at 64).

2000 Pace Arrow Vision 36Z.

I have my auto ins. thru (AARP) The Hartford.

They added the MH for 388 bucks a year, full coverage 500 deductible.


Oh n' is there anywhere on the site where there might be a tutorial about the water systems, black, grey, n' fresh? Pretty much have figured the rest of the systems out. (I think)

Thanks, Jim
