Another New Member

I am another new member who recently bought a 06 Intrigue. I have owned a '93 Am. Eagle for the past 14 years and I am very familiar with RVing. I have taken that Eagle to the ends of Baja and to beaches up and down the Mexican coast, at times filling in ditches and crossings in order to get in or out of primitive but beautiful locations.

I knew that part of my RVing life would be no more when I chose the Intrigue and I can learn to live in campgrounds with 50amp service. Besides I am getting older and shoveling and digging out a m.h. is hard work. Now I have new challenges, just in learning all the electronics and systems that come with this m.h. that I am new to. Like stepping up from a '65 Chevy to a 2012 Lexus. Holy Mackeral. I am almost in over my head.

I love to drive, I love the smooth quiet ride but there is a hard learning curve that I am going through and I will be asking advice from you. I have been a member of rv.net and I have been spending time on this form just reading all the responses and great information that you all share. It is impressive, the amount of knowledge and experience you collectively have and a new member like me is most indebted to you all for sharing it so willingly.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and I can only hope that I too can contribute something to you in return. We hope to run into some of you on the road, at a rally or just an RV park. Cheers, Norbert

Welcome to the forum . . . ask away! We purchased an 06 Intrigue just over a year ago, and had gone from an 03 Eagle back to a class C then up to a Winnebago Adventurer, and now we've got our Intrigue. We love the coach, but as you said, there is quite the learning curve. We have been "saved" a number of times by advise that we've received on this website!

It's a beautiful coach. Congratulations!

By the way, check out the Country Coach Owner's forum . . . sometimes there are just some challenges with Country Coaches that are particular to the breed! That forum also helped us to obtain missing manuals and information that just isn't written anywhere.

We may have been neighbors in the Baja or Mainland Mexico. I still carry a shovel with me.
Welcome to the forum and happy travels,

My website describes the conversion of my Dodge B-250 van into a small RV. I deal with a lot of woodworking, but hope to be quite specific on solar as well.
