Our new coach was delivered last night at 5:00pm. we got it home and backed into the shed. Talk about tight! We had about 11 inches to spare. When they give you an overall length, the DO NOT include the mirrors sticking out on the fron or the ladder protruding off the rear.
We got the door closed anyway. Forgot how nice it really was.

I had the same problem, when we got our Horizon home. It took me 4 times to get the door closed because of the RF mirror. I had to remove the tow bar for the toad. The main thing like you said "we got the door closed" Now the fun begins.

Welcome, from another Wisconsinite, although I'm typing this while sitting in a campground just outside Tampa FL. The Anthem was on our short list when we bought our coach just over a year ago. It's a beautiful and a well built coach. May you enjoy many happy (s)miles in it.

We were looking at the american coachs. But for the amenities we went with the Anthem. we waited for the 2012 floorplans, but as we recently discovered, we should've waited a couple more months to order. Now the Anthem has the integrated awnings like the Cornerstone. Which is what we wanted in the first place. I guess we'll wait and see what is next

They do that on purpose, to entice you to keep trading up. I'm at the Lazydays campground and I looked at the 2012 Revolution. Some nice updates I wish I had (like the frameless windows and the patio awning attached to the slideout).

No matter what we buy, there will always be something better. At some point you just have to pull the trigger knowing that next week your same brand/model will be improved.

JR;

Welcome to iRV2. I read you posts on the BlueOx TC. I don't think you upset any one. I would not give a second thought to it. Browse the forums that interest you and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Don

, don't get discouragedeveryone is hear to help each other. I had to look up the blue ox TC.
I'm not sure about the Blu Ox steering stabilizer, but the towing products are the best as far as I'm concerned. It looks like its compareable to the comfort steer on the Newmar. I'd say from the details, it couldn't hurt.

Hello Just thought i would say Hi and try out my first post. My family of four just purchased a 1997 winnebago adventurer 37rw. Its our first MH and am wondering if there is any thing to know about it? It has a slide and levelers, only 11k miles on it and we got it for 14k. Is this a good deal and do we need to worry about the ford 460 v8?

Sounds like a great coach. Make sure the tires are in good shape. Other than that, 14K doesn't sound bad for a single slide 97 with 11k miles on it. It'll teach you the ins and outs of the motorhomes, including water pumps, water heaters, how to manage water when dry camping or if you don't have full hook up, A large cutting board works great to cover your stove top if your coach doesn't have a factory one. You may have to have a converter box for the tv(s). Grippy shelf liner is your friend. Nothing is more irritating to me than hearing dishes clank around as your traveling down the road. Put it on shelves and between dishes. Also, with a gas coach, don't go over 60mph. For one check the tires for speed rating. secondly, your fuel mileage drops considerably after 60. At 60 in our itacsa, it would average around 9.5-10mpg. I could go on. We are now on our 3rd coach. Started out in a 34 itasca sunrise. One thing winnbago is known for is storage. They have great spacial ability. Then we had a 2002 travel Supreme. We just got our 2012 Entegra Anthem.
