Hello from Upstate NY

Well, we've put it off to the point where if we don't do it this year, we'll never be able to do it. So, have started searching in earnest for our first RV, We're leaning towards a Itasca Navion at the present. We're going to travel the back roads and small towns and thought the Navion would be nimble enough for that. Would love to hear from Navion owners on here and their experiences.
Happy travels! Mac

We have had our Navion 2010k since it was new, and are approaching 50k miles with no major issues (knock wood).

DH takes great mechanical care of it, and we garaged it indoors when not in use. Much of it is in LN condition

It has been a great RV for us, and it has been all over the US and much of S. Canada over the last 8 years. It has been an easy vacation home for us - go anywhere, camp anywhere.

Hope you have as much luck with your upcoming View/Navion. We got a great deal on ours (new) from Lewis RV in Ohio

Welcome! The Itasca Navion should be fine. We have a Tioga 26Q which 27' and is short enough to use pull through parking spaces. We kayak and canoe a lot. Here in the Finger Lakes, the Daks, and the Northeast you will find a lot of the State campsites on the water have a restriction of 30' so the Itasca Navion shouldn't have any problems.

A hardy welcome to Oldnewbie76 from Upstate NY from K9Piper also from Upstate NY . Enjoy irv2 ...it's a good place with a bunch of nice folks who will do the best that they can with answers to your RV questions and such.
Enjoy the rest of the summer as Old Man Winter is starting to rev his engines. It's almost time to pull the plug on the AC and turn on the heat or start the wood burning stove here in the Hudson Valley! Good luck and enjoy!
