First Timer RV Owner In The House.

Hello everyone, Leonardo here an avid off roader, I recently tired myself from tenting so I will soon be going from a tent to a 35' 2012 Winnebago Vista. I purchase the the RV about a month ago just waiting for production to start sometime this month and an update on delivery time.

I was searching the web to find out what size fitting I needed to install at the end of the waste station I'm installing as I prepare to pour the concrete for my RV's parking pad here at home and ran across this forum.

Good information I may add, sounds like a nice crowd who pitches in when some asks a question. I'm hopping to learn a lot from you in how to maintain my new RV when I hold possession of it next month.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your warm welcome Keith, wish the 19 others took a couple of seconds to welcome a new but that's not here nor there.

At you request, I have pictures of exactly what the RV will look like even though it is a 2011.

But before I post them lemme tell you the sorry behind the story; what happen was:

When we, my wife and I, were purchasing the RV we test drove one with a grey exterior and dark wood interior. The dealer wanted 125k for it, we tried to talk them down to 100 they came back and said "the best we can do is 110 and some change". After negotiating with the owner we agreed to settle for 105 and some change out the door.

But, for said price we told him if were were gonna pay that kind of money, we better get what we want. So we ordered one identical to the one shown on the picture down below, same wood tone interior and exterior color.

The sales lady called me a couple of weeks later and said they looked all over the place and couldn't find one that matched our description and production on the 2011 chassis had stopped in February. So I told her, well if you don't have it I guess you can't sell it and proceeded, I take we now cancel the contract and I'll keep looking?

She abruptly said, "NO, 2012 production starts in May, your RV will now be on a 2012 Chassis and if there is any upgrades you won't be charges extra for it, we'll honor the contract."

I said hold on a few seconds, I got up my chair and did a lil got back on the phone and said, eehhh....Okay....I guess I can live with that.


What ya think? Opinions, suggestions, instructions, warnings, advices, and 5 cents needed. Good or bad doesn't matter as long as it is constructive criticism.

Thanks in advance.


When you get a chance play the youtube video posted at the end of this post, it'll gives you all in info as to what size engine to the quality of build.

In this exterior color.

I think you will love the Vista. We have only had ours for a month or so but we are thrilled with it.
