New to Class A

After over 30 years of camping in a tent, Vanagon, and 3 different trailers we finally made the leap to Class A: a 2008 National Sea Breeze 34L. Its got a V-10 on a Ford F-53 chassis. We've had it out twice now and love it more each time (especially as my wife gets more comfortable with its size). I love what I have seen on the forum so far and look forward to participating.

After a disastrous experience with an 85 Class C, we bought a 32' Class A just over a year ago. We love it, despite getting a water leak in the dinette/living room slide. We didn't realize that the slide topper was completely rotted out and essentially was an open-mesh net. The slide seal was screwed up, which let the water in.

We had the topper replaced and the seal fixed, but we didn't realise we hadn't dried things out well enough. At the start of this season we found mold that smelled bad enough to gag a skunk!

I've just finished building and installing replacement cabinets and should have all the details (trims, lights, gap fillers etc.) sorted by the end of the week. We're thinking about taking a 5-day trip across the Cascades, staying at Icicle River a couple of nights , then Beebe Bridge two more nights, then home across the North Cascades Highway, with maybe one night a Pearrygin SP.

We've stayed at Beebe Bridge a couple of times with our old clunker. It's a Chelan County park on the shores of one of the lakes created in the Columbia river by the various dams. It's a beautifully maintained park and is right on the river bank/lakeshore.
