Any Triple E owners around here?

Just wondering if there are any Triple E owners around here. We bought a new Triple E Grand Touring about 1 1/2 ago. Last year we took it across Canada from coast to coast. We owned 5 truck campers and one 5th wheel over a 30 year period. Our location is British Columbia, Canada.

Found a Triple E thread, an old one and it will not accept my reply....to old it says...

Yes...... We bought a nice used 1981 Triple e 22 footer a few weeks ago. It's been upgraded and is in great shape and runs like a top. We are on Orcas Island, WA not to far from you.

Triple E Owner's

Bought a 2010 Regency 29 about a year ago and absolutely love it. We live in North Florida and tow a 2009 Jeep Wrangler. Not too close to your location, but hope to get up that way in the near future. Would love to hear from other Triple E owner's.

We are on our 3rd Triple E.

Number 1 was a 1997 Senator 28 Foot Class C Ford E350 V10.
Number 2 was a 1999 Commander 33 Foot Class A Ford F53 V10 and
Number 3 is a 2004 Regency C28XL on a Ford E450 V10.

We still call the factory whenever we want info, they are great.

Yes, the factory guys are great.
We stopped there on our cross Canada tour to get a few small items fixed.
I had some issues with my radio/gps unit.
They put a new switch in the dash.
A few of our drawers would open when we went through a corner.
That was also fixed in no time.
There is a great municipal campground close to the factory and
Triple E also has full hookups in case you want to stay at the plant.

We were no so happy with the dealer, but I highly recommend the factory service dept.

You have brakes on your Jeep?
We have a 4 door 2012 Sahara.
I was planning on pulling it sometime in the future.
I hear different reports in regards to brake requirements.

Ours is a 2011 Regency GT 27, yours must have 2 slides, we have 1. (I think)

We have the Stay-n-Play braking system from SMI. It's a vacuum assist unit and works great. No hassle to use and is mounted under the hood of the Jeep. Just flip a switch and your good to go. Our Regency 29 has three slides.

Thanks, I look into that. :-)

(Don't run your water pump when you are pumping sewer out on a Triple GT. It will blow a fuse.....found that out this morning...)

I've been spending the last two weeks putting in a new floor and re-modeling the bathroom on my new 1981 Triple e. It's starting to look pretty up to date.

Today, I just bought a 1981 Triple E Micmac IV (26') for $1800.

I'm looking for information on the Dodge F40 chassis and which model to cross reference parts with since none of the shops list the F40 chassis.

Triple E products are manufactured in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada. It's only an hour and half from where I live and I frequent that town several times a month.
