We finally did it, Advantage to Revolution

We bit the bullet and traded in our 2002 Winnebago Ultimate Advantage for a 2008 Fleetwood Revolution LE and WOW what a difference with a tag axle, although I hope our luck changes for the better. On the way home from dealership had an owl come at the windshield but luckily missed windshield right in front of me but hit driver side mirror busting out all three mirrors which hit against the side of the RV. Minor damage and less expensive than me hurt or the windshield. Speaking of the windshield, we went on our first outing this weekend, rock hit it at the top causing a 9inch crack downward and then satellite and directv box wouldn't communicate with each other. Well, I sure it will get better and I still very happy with the coach.

Just over two years now and still loving the coach. Have traveled to several states with only improvement being that I got rid of that norcold and put in a Samsung.
