You will have fun. This whole enterprise is a great adventure.

The people we meet along the way are the best part. Watching kids, & families , and empty nesters, there is a place for all of us at campgrounds. The connecting theme is that we all seize & enjoy the day.

Funny you should use those words " seize the day". It's our motto and how we try to live

our boat name was "seas the day"

Our rig is called "poodle express" but it could also have been same as boat

Won't get delivery of rv until December - greT Christmas gift
trying to get necessary provision and get ready for our first winnebago rally in Florida in January
Counting on fellow rvers to help if needed , but hopefully we'll be prepared on our own

One recommendation is to find yourself a good reputable Mercedes dealer in case you ever need them. I have 2 choices in MT, one is a 230 mi round trip and the other is 450 mi round trip. I found out the closer one is not worth the shorter travel time and all they did is complain about Winnebago and lie to me. That most certainly is not a good way to run a business. The other dealer is used all the time by the states Winnebago dealers with much success.

You'll find out with a little experimentation how to load your coach and be pleased with the results. We went to a small hometown ShopKo store and found an adjustable silverware drawer that everyone thinks came with the unit because it fits perfect. We thought we wouldn't have enough storage and find that we actually had some empty cabinets. Maybe those are for goodies we buy when traveling.

Best wishes from Steve & Sandi

Do you use a tow car, if yes, which one. If not, do you miss it ?
Glad to hear you love the view and good advice on service suggestions
Have you had any issues we should look for ??
I'm starting to provision
Bought linens, coffee pot, outside rug, propane grill, small table , chairs
I'll definitely check out drawer info and any other storage tips you have
Researching hoses types and sizes needed
Thank you
Jim and Joanne

Another question
Where do you store your sewer hose - found a box big enough for one and extension etc, but it will take up 1/3 or more of basement storage
What about other hoses?? Water, electric ??
Thank you
Joanne and jim

We do not use a Toad. It has not been a problem for us and we don't feel we need one. We have seen a few in our travels but have not found it necessary. Our recent trip to Las Vegas worked out good too. Found out I could rent a car from Enterprise on the cheap. The pick you up at your RV park and when your done you leave it at the office of the park, call them and they pick it up.

Yes it does, however it isn't big enough in diameter to put an elbow on the end of the tube.

We bought a longer sewer hose that has end caps on both ends that seal. It does not leak nor smell. We also use one of the accordion stands for the hose. One of the basement compartments under the slide is where we keep the sewer hose, the accordion stand, water hose and other items. The electrical power is in the back of the coach and is self storing.

You should get a brochure of the coach you ordered and do a complete walk around eyeing all the storage areas and planning from there. Measurements are very helpful inside and out if possible. Then it is all TRIAL & ERROR as you'll find out.

The coach comes with a ten foot Hose= we use that & that alone. The Sewer Hose is in a built in storage located in the Driver's Side Frontmost Storage Bin.

I'm also looking for a solution. I have a Navion ( same, same as the View ). The diameter of the built in tube is not large enough to store the hose with the elbow attached. So in order to reduce or eliminate the need to handle the coupling of the elbow, I want to leave the elbow attached to the hose. I'm looking for storage alternatives other than putting it all in a plastic storage box. Possibly a 5" PVC fence post mounted to the underside of the RV. Anyone out there done something like this? Pics would be helpful.
Rick

The view 24

Does anyone have or seen the view in the 24v with the dinette option rather than the sofa ??
We know the sofa is comfortable, so this one should be ??
like the idea of the "extra seat"
Not sure if it still has a bed or maybe just storage
And wondering about walking room when slide is closed
Appreciate any thoughts
Joanne and jim

We saw this sofa option and it's not for us- the ottoman doesn't store completely under sofa
We plan to buy extra chair for company in case we want to l0
Play cards and foot stool for lounging on sofa when inside coach
Hope we have room for all these extra
We are al about creature comforts even when camping

We have the standard sofa and enjoy it. There is no problem with walking room when the slide is in. We have 2 foot stools that we bought from Target that work as extra seats and double as foot rests. The lids are padded and come off so there is extra storage inside. They also have a pocket on the outside to store magazines or books. One stores behind the drivers seat and the other sits behind the passenger seat when we are traveling.

Doesn't look there's room behind seats for an ottoman , but great idea
We saw a few ottomans that fold up - yours is a much better idea
We're picking up our view earlier than originally thought - october 5/6 !!

More than excited !!
Jim and Joanne
