Maiden test drive

Hello all! Took my maiden test drive today in a 2014 Newmar Ventana 4037. I do have to say it drove pretty good considering the size. It was quite different then driving my Infiniti G37 I do feel it would take more time to get comfortable driving one of these. Tony @ National Indoor RV Centers - Home here in Ga was great in explaining every thing about this coach. The floor plan was pretty close to what we want, but not exactly the one.

Congratulations signore, and welcome to the Newmar family. You will love your Ventana. We certainly love ours. As for getting used to it, you will do so pretty quickly. Just take your time, and leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you while drive down the road. Take it easy on hills, both going up and more importantly going down. Most importantly however, is just enjoy it and make some happy memories.

Our salesperson took us for our first drive up on a curvy hillside. He wanted to prove that you don't have to exert much for it to handle easily. He was right!

Your new coach has Comfort Drive. You'll soon see the advantages of Comfort Drive and realize that you're not as exhausted at the end of the day.

Yes it did have the comfort drive on it.

I did not purchase this coach, just my first time driving one

I think we settled on the 4369 and want the 2 recliners and table option instead of the coach. Like this
