We take our cats on all our trailer trips. They go in the truck while traveling. When we are parked, they go into the trailer. One loves it, and the other tolerates it. We felt so guilty when we used to leave them at home, even with a neighborhood kid who would come over and take care of them. Even though one of them isn't thrilled with the trailer, I think they prefer it to being by themselves at home.

We put the litter box under the bed. DH cut a whole in the "siding" between the supports. It works great! The bed is one of those that raise up for storage, and the cat box fits there well. It is easy to pull out and clean daily - no smells.

Great ideas on how to deal with litter boxes! How do you keep them from escaping when entering & exiting the coach? Our cats are used to being able to go outside when they want to at the house. One goes for walks with us and the dogs and his stubby little legs keep up with us for our mile or more walks. That's Earl. Callie likes being in the house more than Earl and she rarely gets out of the yard but I'm afraid that if either got out in a strange place, they'd freak and we'd never see them again.

Gary and I share the same log-in. I do lots more reading then posting, and if Gary has a question I post it for him. I think form now on I will put my name at the end like other so that they know Gary is asking a stupid question not me

4 years are going to go by so slow untill we sell the house and buy our new to us dream DP. Really eyeballing the 2015 Vantana, maybe when its time to buy one in 2019 we can find a 2015 Vantana in our price range.

Another reason I hesitate to take the cats is because a long time ago when I was in highschool, my folks brought my cat with them to see me in TX where I was in a girls reform school, and on the trip home, spooky got out of the camper and was frightened by the semi's, so though they searched for hours for him, they never found him. I can't let that happen again.

That's almost exactly our plan! We're at about 5 years out from selling the S&B & getting our DP. We will be looking for a 2015-2016 DutchStar or AC Revolution then.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I have not been in side a 2015 Dutch Star yet (looks fantastic from the brochure we like the 3736 or 4018), the sticker price kinda scares me because I just might like it too much and my needs vs wants list will go out the window. I really would like a side ratiator since I will be doing all the maintenance my self and who doesn't like more HP. If when the house sells and we get more then we are thinking we will get; then just maybe a 2015 will be in our buget.

I think I will go ask that question in the Newmar group since we really want to by our last DP first.

Look at me Im posting more already

Lurkers are Ladies, too. Know lots of women who solo RV. Pilot a 35 ft and so enjoy the looks when a 5 ft 2 steps out of the cab. On lookers keep watching for the Man.

Hi Jennifer,

DH and I will be going for the factory delivery of our DS4018 in a week. Very excited, of course! We've heard rave reviews about Newmar's quality, so we were pleased that they make a 40' tag axle. I think Newmar is currently the only company that makes a tag shorter than 42. Regarding the sticker price... from what I've read, most buyers manage to get a 20-30% discount.

Great to hear about women doing maintenance! The Newmar group is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They appear to be able to answer all questions.

Linda,

Congrats on your coach!!! The floor plan looks amazing. I know you'll be excited to see it but don't be so excited that you forget to take pics & show us!

It's great to know so many gals solo! I'm not but think I could if my situation was different.

Thanks Karen! I have a question, as a newbie to irv2. I just started a thread about an exciting program (Tents for Troops) onto the Newmar forum. I think it may be of interest here as well. How do I copy the post onto other forums?

Thanks,
Linda

Linda,

I truly enjoy my profession as a heavy equipment mechanic and sure is going to come in handy when we are full timing. Im also a maintenance instructor for the Army Reserves and the female soldiers are some of my best students. I think its because they take the time to read the manuals in stead of just winging it

We are planning a trip to the Newmar factory for a tour this summer, cant wait to see how the rigs are put togeather. Going to go to a Newmar dealer this weekend to look at the Vantana vs Dutch Star.

Factory delivery look like such a fun option that if we buy new that would definatily be on the must have list. I bet its hard to sleep at night your so excited about next week, I know I couldnt sleep. It would be like the day before you get to go to Disney Land. Have fun!

Jennifer
