We test drove the vista yesterday in Florida - it was 90 degrees outside and couldn't get temp lower than 76
What can we expect ? We usually keep temp lower especially at night

What recliners did you purchase that would fit in the space of the Sofabed? Have not found any that will fit let alone add a console.

In this heat (I am in Stuart, Fl) Cooling , once the Coach is hot, is a challenge. But, Run the Gen & Dash A/C (or use shore power to cool down before you unhook), along with the Dash Air-and.. it will Cool off.

Our Winnebago View has the oversized Air option, and we can get it really cold inside there , when the sun goes down, or in the AM.( heavy Blanket cold) We both sleep better in our Motor Home than we do at our house.

On those really Hot Summer Days, the A/C compressor will run hard- but we are comfortable.

No-and No- The reason we got a 25 footer is because we do not want to fool with a toad.

Narrow streets are not an issue, and our View is perfect for National Parks , as well as State Parks.- There are lots of times when we are nestled around Tents.

We are "Travelers" more than we are "Campers" meaning even though we have been on a couple of 60 Day Runs- we generally, stay one or two nights at any given location, exceptions being National Parks, or really attraction enticing locations.

We test drove the view today and loved the ride
It is ordered and I'm playing with getting a few accessories that are as light weight and small as possible
Until we decide on a toad or not we want a rear Carrier for barbecue etc
Got to research those as well as TV and satellite service
Since space is limited have to be careful with size and amount of stuff
Any recommendations for
Barbecue
Outside table and chairs
Rug outside
Outside fan

We're very excited
Jim And Joanne

We have been very satisfied (23 months 36K miles of Use)

We did not add any storage-we just adapted to what we have -and have plenty for 2 people. PS-we have been on 2 sixty day runs.

We have 2 nice Cabela folding director chairs, an Axe(3feet long), a Shovel(also 3ft long), and Charcoal in the longer belly storage on the right side.

We have a folding stainless Charcoal grille-that we use daily in the rear storage bin (right side) that bin also holds a shortened 5 gal bucket with our curly water hose in it (put quick connects on that hose), along with -a galon of DEF, and 6 2X 8 boards 19" long (to level the Coach on a campsite).

PS -on the excitement factor- You should be excited-You are in for some great adventures- HAVE A BALL!!

Yes, Axe, it is flat, and does not take up much room- I split the campground firewood-to make the firewood burn easily-the big chunks you buy at the campgrounds will not ignite easily, unless you split them. A little hatchet will just not do the job. I use the charcoal that we cooked the dinner with to start the campfire- then we sit outside in our comfy chairs & people watch with a cup of after dinner tea.

We love to stay at State, Municipal , National Parks-almost all have fire rings and folks will walk by-say hello & sometimes stop to talk. Lots of folks will comment on your rig- many Women say " I wish my husband would get one of these smaller Motorhomes"

No Rug- for us- we have a mat inside the door. Rug storage is an issue, and if the rug is wet, it is a nuisance.

a Little fan, my wife likes it-it doesn't do anything for me.

Propane Mosquito repeller-small green one from Bass Pro- about 3 X 6 inches with a little pad you replace for every use. It WORKS for about every flying bug around.

No Cooler-refrigerator is plenty for us.

No table, folding matching Cabela foot stool doubles for table- the places we stay all have an outside table- we generally eat outside (given nice weather-not too hot-not too wet-not too buggy.

We take 2 good bikes, good bike rack that holds 4 bikes ( that means it is heavy duty)

PS: We are primarily "Travelers"-we love the travel part, we generally stay a day or two at any one location- as opposed to "Campers" that will stay in one place for a week at a time, then move on. We can set up in 15 minutes or less. I will often not even hook up the sewer line-even if it is available-if we stay less than 3 nights. I just dump before we leave- That way- I only have to fool with the sewage once.

You will figure out the pots & pan thing. The cook knows what he/she "has " to have.
