We have had a 2008 HR Neptune XL for just over a year now...we absolutely love it, especially since Source MFG and Wayne @ Roadmaster in Vancouver, WA replaced the trailing arms and added the ride enhancement package. Wayne also added the stearing stabilizer last year, so we are all set. The only trouble we are having now, is when it is raining and we are traveling over 50 mph the driver's windshield wiper goes too far left off the windshield and makes a clicking sound. The nut is tight, so don't know what else it could be?
But, it hardly rains in CA, so not a big deal.

I have a 99 Endeavor as well, are you doing the hole coach or just where the carpet is ??, I have been thinking about extending the tile up threw the center of the carpet kind of a walk way look.. I saw it in a new coach and it looked pretty good.. Mike

We have an '01 Endeavor and love it. Replaced the tile with wood flooring and added solar panels on the roof.

We're now a travelling road show!

We have a 2004 Holiday Rambler Ambassador 38 PDQ. Bought it in fall of 2005 and have put 48000 miles on it in the last 5 year's. We pull a 2009 Unlimited Jeep Wrangler.
Been pretty happy with Ambassador other then having the trailing arms replaced at our expense.

05 Endeavor DST w/400 Cummins. Bought it used a year ago. No issues of consequence so far.

So I'm the cheap, poor one of the group. I have a 1984 HR Imperial 33ft. It does all I want it to do. Has all the creature comforts of the time. However, almost every item on it is either no longer available, an odd size, or impossible to replace. Some examples are: the roof vents have rounded corners and have not been made for years; the refrigerator has no modern equivalent of the same size; the entry door is thicker than modern doors so replacement of the window frame has been a challenge; the "slider" on the screen door is about 1/4" taller than anything I can find to replace it; the black vinyl trim inserts in the screw channels on the sides seem impossible to find; the tail lights are unique to HR (a scrap yard is the only hope); etc, etc. But I love my HR. It doesn't leak, it goes where I want to go. I bought it because it had twin beds. I don't always camp with my wife and some of my camping buddies just don't fancy the idea of snuggling up with me.

Does that mean that some do ?

96' Endeavor here, 230 HP Cummins. For the most part, happy with it, but I am a perfectionest (DW calls me anal). There are many things I would do different if I were building it from the bottom up, but I am able to change things as I see fit.
Would I buy another HR, sure, but not just yet as I've finally gotten most things the way I like it. I do need to replace the radiator soon as it has a small leak and I won't trust a repair on such a old Radiator.

2002 Holiday Rambler Admiral 36wdd----- W-22 chassis. More than pleased with the house part. Other than the brake issue, the Workhorse has been a pleasure to drive, for 47,000 miles.

A question to you 96ish HR owners, we have the Endeavor DP on a Frieghtliner XC chassis. I have still not been able to figure out how to operate the slide manually, I did rebuild the electric slide motor but did not see how to manually operate the slide. Any sugestions?

Another poor boy. "On the cheap", and paid for. My side molding were bad too (hard and discolored) so I was on the hunt for those right away. Don't know if I lucked out or not, but found enough to replace all of it on both sides. Many other small projects required, but the basic coach is solid/servicable and fairly well equipped even by modern standards, so there's something there to work with.

I know these "originals" are getting older, but it would be nice to have an active place online to hang out with those that have similar coaches.
