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.
where is yours leaking ? have you found a replacement yet ? if so how much ? thanks

We have an '04 HR Neptune PDQ and we really like it. We got it last November and it had about 13,000 miles and new tires. The only thing I don't like it sometimes bumping my head on the front TV cabinet when coming in.

When I bought my first holiday rambler it was a 25 ft class c and the quality was great that's why the second one would be another holiday rambler and so far I am very happy . This one is a vacationer 2003 36 ft. Even with the brake recall nothing was bad on mine.

We like our HR Vacationer just fine...I'll leave it at that. Every time I brag a little, something breaks. We are in Nashville now waiting for the motor and roller cap for the main awning....should have been here days ago and no one knows where it is. Not a bad place to be stuck in though, and hopefully in about a month, we can say that it's taken us to Alaska! We especially like the bath and a half feature. Bob

Just bought a 2001 HR Imperial. Going thru it to get aquainted. Have changed all the filters and fluids except hydraulic but that will be done Wednesday. So far so good. All seems to be working. Looking forward to trips and experiences especially with the grandchildren. See you down the road.

1982 Holiday Rambler Imperial 33ft

We have a 1982 33ft HR Class A, after bringing it home to Cali, we discovered why it was a Nevada resident, it wouldnt pass smog. So we replaced many engine parts and that was just the begining, now that it is home to Cali we plan on keeping it for a few years. It has 84000 miles and runs like a charm we are very happy with our first RV.

We have a 2001 HR Endeavor 38WWD. Purchased it just a year ago and have 6000 miles on it already. (87000 on odometer) several smaller problems , shocks, front end alignment, rear slide leaking if I don't pull rubber seal out after opening etc. now electric step control board gone out. (already found new board) I knew I would have some problems and we are happy with our choice. First motor home, had several 5th wheels and trailers before. Tom & Marilyn

We traded our Fleetwood Class C for a '04 HR Vacationer with 78,000 miles on it. The owner drove it back and forth from VA to FL so its mostly highway miles. The inside is like new and well kept. The main problem we have had is the L/R slide. We are still working on figuring out how to manually bring it in and have not had any luck. Hope to get it fixed this summer. Otherwise we like this coach alot. We hope to keep it for a long time.

We also have a 2001 HR Imperial. Ours is a 38wds, and we bought it 2 years ago. We have had a couple problems but really like the coach. I would say the quality is top notch!

This is our second HR. Our first was a 96 HR Imperial 39WD and after 15 years and a lot of memories we traded it for a 2004 HR Imperial 38PST, mainly because we wanted slides . Can't wait till we are full timers !

We have a 2000 Endeavor. 40 ft DP. We've only had it since October, bought it in Tucson and drove it back to Cleveland. We are very impressed with the quality, and the only thing we would change is the paint job. I would buy another one.

We just bought our 2003 HR Vacationer 36' about 2 months ago. Have changed tv's and DVD players, added an inverter system, more batteries and fixed a bunch of minor stuff. Should just about be where I want it then somehow, I'll put it up for sale like the last one. I think I'm hooked on the search for the deal. My wife loves our HR though. Nice shape with low miles.
