Welcome and congrats. We bought our first Class A MH from MHSRV in May. Quite an operation they have. They're on track to sell 1200 units this year. Just incredible. Enjoy your new coach.

I would say it depends on who you deal with. After going through two salesmen we ended up dealing with the sales manager. Mark Griffith, and I found him to be great to work with. We've had to go in for service once since purchase and the service was pretty good.

So far I would say yes, they deserve the right to brag a bit. When we arrived the unit we were interested in was set up on a covered RV spot in the back. they asked if we wanted to spend the night in it first to try everything out, which we declined due to time constraints. After the salesman visited with us a tech from the service department spent about 2 hours going over every aspect of the coach with us. The price was great, the people were great. I would hightly recomend them.

Hi Ken, I think I have seen you over at openroadsradio.

I have a Yaesu FT-100 with the ATAS-100 for mobile, and an Ultimax-100 for portable HF and 6, and an Efactor dual band loop for 2 and 432 SSB.

This was our exact experience with MHSRV...I spent lots of time on the phone with Cowboy understanding the shape, condition and features of our MH before we ever hit the road...that along with all the pics, it pretty much made the buying experience very easy...the purchase process at MHSRV was very easy, easier than my last truck as a matter of fact...

Would love to see some pics of the new coach!
