We joined a while back when we bought our first coach, but never seemed to have the time keep up with the many choices at iRV2. We've lived the last month in our SeaBreeze LX 34, though, and since we found we could do that just as well as in our house, decided we'd look for a new coach to rememdy some of the issues we had with the SB. We really didn't expect to find what we wanted, but of course we did last weekend in a 2005 Vectra 40AD - when we walked into it the floorplan and options fit our list to a "T". So, two days before our first 10 day RV trip we were madly shifting belongins Sunday night from the old to the new.

After arriving in N Cal mid-week, we have been visiting relatives and generally enjoying the coach and learning our way around, and that's where this forum comes in. I have spent at least half of today on line with the DW (what DOES DW stand for, anyway.... Dear Wife?) off with the folks, and have learned a TON of useful information from the posts on the Winnebago and Freightliner threads (like, taking forever to fill the diesel tank is normal, there really is a purpose to the Allison mode button, little things do go wrong fairly frequently in these coaches, etc). Kind of reminds me of the folks over on BMW Sportouring.com - dedicated, knowledgeable and willing to share what they've learned with everyone else. Appreciate it!
