Purchased our 05 HR Vacationer(first MH) in 09. Retired for the 3rd and final time. Just love it. We have done a few mods, led tvs, windshield and wheel covers, cocpit fans, new screening for windows and entry door, small mesh...we discovered what no seeums are. We winter in Florida just outsided of Dade City, Travelers Rest Resort. Should have done this a long time ago. Stop in and say hello.

Well! Here are, bought an 06 HR Admiral 30PDD on a F53 Ford. Have used it now for 1/2 year and 3000 miles. Seems to me after reading most of the above, we might not be a fit. Seems most folks have a pusher with a Freightliner chassis but for us big is not better. Hope we're welcome and who knows maybe we can be of assist some day. We are Joyce and Ray from Surrey BC and we're heading for the sun in a couple of weeks. Maybe we can hook up some where.

How many HR owners

New to the forum, we just purchased a 2013 HR 36SBT. We think we are doing all this backwards, we started out with a used class C 25 years ago, then went to a travel trailer then a 5th wheel. We retired about a year ago and decided to go back to a MH after I had heart surgery and I had trouble doing the hitching and starting the generator (hand pull). So here we go on the grand adventure. The big class A - it's a whole new ballgame for us.

Picking up our HR Neptune 2008

We will be picking up our "new to us" 2008 HR Neptune this Friday. Tomorrow we go to do a walk through. Any advise of things to look for on the MH? Are there any problems we should ask about? Any known problems with slides? We are super excited to get the new MH.

We currently have a 2000 Georgie Boy Cruise Master 1 slide, gas. We have had it for about 3 years.

Here is the brochure:

Here is a link to a long running thread concerning the trailing arms on the RR4R chassis. You should become familiar with this issue.

Steve, Thank you so much for the information. We will be checking this out. The mileage on ours is 40,123.

We go through the orientation on Friday. Is there anything else that could be a major problem we need to ask about?

We really love the coach, just hope there isn't too much. I saw your pictures of the arms and my husband will be looking at these so he will know what to look for.

Thanks again

Smile Just Bought one

We are the new owners of a 2002 HR Atlantis 28ft class C. It hasn't left the dealers lot, we are getting a few things taken care of and waiting for their go over and then we get our chance to give our last go over and head to Camping World to buy stuff. It's getting more and more like a boat every day. Camping World is the R/V version of West Marine.
To those that don't know we lived on a 33 ft sailboat for ten years and traveled the islands mon. I messed my knee up and decided it might be to rough on my in a fast response situation.

Update to picking up our 2008 Neptune

Spoke to the dealer Pierce RV in Billings MT, we let them know about the potential problem, gave them all the material I had gotten from here. They called us back today, said the trailing arms weren't cracked but they have ordered the parts from Source and will be replacing them, at no cost to us! The owner said he will not let it go to us without it being fixed.

There was also a tear on one of the slide toppers and and they are going to fix this also. I just can't say enough good about Pierce RV, they are a wonderful group/dealership to do business with!

I feel blessed on this and want to thank everyone for all the information I was able to get from here.

Thanks again, Rob and Tammy

That's great news and I'm glad to hear the dealer did not try to down play the issue. The Source Engineering trailing arms will take care of the safety issue. Since they are doing this you might check with them to see how much they would charge to put on the Source Engineering " ride enhancement kit" at the same time. It should save some labor and all the owners who have installed the kit are very happy with the ride improvement. I'm not trying to spend your money but if you are interested, now would be the time.

Update to picking up our 2008 Neptune/Steve

I will certainly bring it up to my husband. We are thrilled with the response from Pierce. What I felt might turn into a nightmare is now a huge relief!

I also can't thank everyone here enough! I hate to think what could have happened if.........

Just pulled in with a new to me 1977 HR Imperial 532. This makes me the third owner of this trailer and for its 35 years it is in nice condition. Lots of little things to bring it up to what I desire.
Now I need to find where I can get body parts like the plastic covers that go over the tires and if anyone makes replacement for the lower corner plastic covers.
Water heater needs replacement, is there a good on-demand heater that would fit into the original heater space?
After the sun rises in the morning I am sure there will be additional questions.
Thanks...

Rick's 1977 HR

Rick.
These older HR travel trailers and 5th wheels .. early 90's and back are getting harder to find. They are what I had in mind with my post last year. I think they are some of the best quality and value. I am hoping that owners who are trying to refurbish or maintain these HR campers will share info here. Congratulations on your brand new used Holiday Rambler. Mine is a 92 32 5th wheel. It's our 3rd HR. The first was probably similar to yours and its still being used often by the next owner after me.
Dave
