We are not new to RVing, motorhomes - heck I'm not even new to this site, having jumped in to comment in another forum. But, time to say a formal hello.
We started with a VW Campmobile 40 some years ago. Went the route of slide in campers, then a Class C, and now we are on our 3rd, no 4th, Class A. All have been pre-owned. At the moment we have 2 Class A's, having just today purchased coach 4. (We did not trade-in the other one.) So, now new to the family is a 1999 National Tradewinds 7371, which is said to be 36' to 37.5' Hope it will fit in the driveway!
I am so grateful to have found this website while doing research on-line about used coaches at local dealers. We learned of this one last week, so I spent a lot of time reading up on the Tradewinds coach - stumbled onto this site and spent hours reading about other Tradewinds, and some of the help available here, experiences, warnings and a pool of future friends. After all of the reading, I know I stunned the dealer with questions about the hitch capability, CACs and slobber valves.
If nothing else, may have forestalled smoke and mirrors sales pitches!
We are retired, and take short jaunts with a couple of 'curb-stone setters', an Australian Shepard, Rosie, and a Bearded Collie mix, Chuff.
We also have a camp aboard Starcraft jet cruiser "Kwyt-A-Kanu II" when we want a cabin on a lake.
