New to this forum and the class A motorhome. I traded my class C in last year for a 2001 Damon Ultrasport 36.5' with a 275hp/5.9 cummins sitting on a freightliner xc chassis. First thing I did was go on a 7 state 3500 mile trip with my dog and left the old lady at home. Was only be gonna gone 2 weeks, but turned out to be 31 days. Had a great trip and looking forward to doing the same trip this year with my other half this time. While I have been a backyard mechanic since I could pick up a tool, I'm now going on 62 and a certified HD mechanic, yeah nothing compared to working on these big units. I do have some problems so looking forward to picking some brains and helping others when I can

Welcome to the forum. My question is: How did you get away with that? And was it worth it?
