New member and 1st time RV owner

Hello everyone,

We just purchased a 2000 Rexhall Aerbus 3550 Gasser with 2 slides on a Ford chassis. Anybody have one of these and if so what can you tell me about it both good and bad. We like the floorplan and it only has 28,000 miles on it but know very little as this is our first foray into RVing. Is there a source to obtain a manual in PDF form that anyone knows about? Rexhall is charging for a copy.

Thanks in Advance

Hi Brad! Welcome to IRV2! It's great to have you join the bunch!

Congrats on the new rig! I don't know anything about that particular RV, but I would suggest that you post questions over in the specific areas of the forum for best results. Not many folks hang out here in the Welcome area so your responses will be limited. Enjoy the forum!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Howdy and welcome! If you use the forum search feature (above), you can find a lot of info about the Rexhall. Here is one previous thread, which has info about a Yahoo Owner's group and other stuff. CLICK HERE

I also have a 2000 Rexhall Aerbus (3550BL, I believe) w/ 2 slides, on a Ford chassis with a V10. I have owned this MH for a 3-1/2 years and this is our third MH.
We are very happy with this MH. We have been on several extended trips with it, either towing a Chevy Colorado pickup or a 16' enclosed trailer with a touring sized motorcycle inside. It has handled these towing tasks very well.
The overall build quality is very good. We have approx. 46K miles on the MH now and it is still essentially void of rattles, etc.
We have been fortunate also with all the systems (slides, levelers, appliances, plumbing, electrical). We've had occasional issues, but nothing major.
On the negative side, I've noticed that when traveling in hot weather and stopping in a campground, the roof AC unit takes quite a bit of time to cool the inside of the MH. We have a 30A service and can only run one AC unit at a time, and I believe the heat from the engine and the overall temperature of the motorhome overcomes the cooling capacity of the AC unit for quite a while.
Also, in cold weather (20 degrees or less), the heating capacity could be better. It would also help if the MH itself was "tighter". I would say it's somewhat drafty when the wind is blowing. Dual pane windows might help as well.
Welcome aboard! RVing is a great lifestyle, enjoy!
