New to us '05 Sea Breeze
 
So we'll be hitting the road soon in a, new to us, '05 Sea Breeze. It's a nice low mileage coach, with a really clean interior and exterior. Today's road test went well, all systems appear to be in good running order, and we're hoping to take delivery and be on the road in the next week.

Our RV dealer was very responsive to all our concerns, and is fixing, replacing or repairing everything we noted during our multiple visits to look over this coach - including 4 new tires on the rear.

We looked at a few Class A's before deciding on the Sea Breeze, and while at 31', it's the shortest of the ones's we looked at, the layout of the kitchen, the interior and basement storage is actually better than some of the larger MH's we looked at.

Here's to a summer of travel with our 2 Labs!

Sure you will enjoy your new coach, I had a 01 Surf Side and now have a 07 Sea Breeze. National made great coaches at all levels. Go out and have some fun. Post often and let us know how your doing.

The one thing that we/the dealer is looking for is a nice replacement table for the dining booth. The existing table is damaged beyond reasonable repair.

Can anyone recommend a source for a nice replacement table?

thanks!

During end-of-sale negotitations, I had brought up the condition of the LP Tank on the Sea Breeze, and I just got a call that delivery will be held up another couple of days because they are replacing the tank. They were not satisfied with the level of rust on the tank, and its being replaced as part of the deal. :dance:

As for your table, save the hardware and replace the board. Check the link below.

Nice looking coach! Mine's a couple of feet longer but has the same colors and graphics. I hope you enjoy it. It's hard to match the quality of the Nationals.

If the table is used for the dinette sleeper, the dimensions have to be pretty exact. I had a laminate-countertop fabricator build my replacement a couple years back, the total cost was a little over $200. Bring the old table (or what's left of it) so they can see where they need to edge and reinforce.

FWIW the new table works better and is sturdier than the old table ever was. I was able to match the laminate pretty closely as well.

If you're in or near SoCal, I used Pride Enterprises in North Hollywood, (818) 764-4100.

MY `04 Breeze 1311 table wasn't level and was sagging in the center. I had to cut a whole inch off of the center leg, then put shims under the center of the braces. In this summer heat, I have it sitting inverted in the bed position, with hope is will help it straighten.

Thanks .. we are enjoying our summer travels in our Sea Breeze. It looks like you got a late year 2005 (with the 2006 chassis), we have a 2004 Ford Chassis, so we're likely an early model year 2005.

Our dealer found a really nice replacement table for us. It matches the interior really well, but it's a slightly larger table and we can't use it to convert the table into a bed. Not a big deal as I don't anticipate needing to use the table as a bed very often, so we'll just keep a piece of plywood in the basement that is cut to size.

My `04 1311 Sea Breeze has a sticker just to the left of the door that is stamped 11/03. But get this, the "W" pipe was the 99-00 style. Go figure.
