2012 Coachman 32bh Question

Just purchase a Coachman and will pick up this Friday. Plan to take a quick 5 hr road trip to OKC once we pick it up. Since it is winter and I have not read the manual, was wondering if I need to drain out all of the water once I return home and park the RV?

If it is below freezing, drain and winterize.

We have never winterized, as we use it throughout the winter, but I always drain it durring the colder months.

We love our 2012 32BH, hope you do too!

Looking at this unit as well as the comparable forest rivers and the jayco. Any advice? How is the drivability? We found a 2012 Jayco 31 bh locally we are renting in March to see how we'll we like the design.

It drives quite well, much nicer than the Ford Excursion and 32 trailer it replaced.
We also tow a 2004 Corolla with and are very pleased with how all of it works together.

I've seen a lot of similar bunkhouse class C units whether by Jayco, forest river, Thor, coachmen. Basically 95% similar with a few different tweaks. Any pros or cons?

In my opinion, and I say this as an owner, this style motorhome is a great family RV. It can easily sleep 6 without using your couch or dinette as a bed. The queen bed in the rear is great, and there is more than enough privacy back there.
I find all the equipment of excellent quality and the fit and finish to be very acceptable. I havent really compared it to other makes, but I would assume that in a Class C of this type, there can't be too many differences, there is only so much space to the floorplans must be quit similar. For the price we paid new ($64K) we are very pleased. Are there better deals out there? Couldn't tell you, we bought what we liked from the dealer's stock.

Sounds like a good price, enjoy the trip! I can't wait to try the unit this March. If we like it well start shopping and leave the TT world.
