We are looking to down size from our 41' Newmar Dutch Star and have been looking at a 2005 Vectra 36RD. Does anyone have one that can give there opinion on this model. The only draw back I see is the black & gray tanks are the same size 54 gal. Thanks

If you don't already have it, you can go to the Winnebago website and download a brochure for that year and model. You can get some information, specifications and the floorplan to help you decide... looks like the 36RD was a new floorplan for 2005, quad-slide, forward facing queen bed (which I like). Good luck with your decesion...

When we were coach shopping, the 36RD immediately appealed to - it's a great floorplan.

We went with our 40AD because of the increased square footage, the increased CCC, and at that time it was only about $12,000 more.

If having a 36' coach (and if lots of CCC isn't a consideration) is important, I think it is a wonderful choice.

We have been quite happy with our choice to go Winnebago

We love our 36RD. It is a wonderful driving coach and for the 2 of us it is MORE than enough room. This is my third winnebago and the support is great from the manufacturer and we have had very few issues just like our journey before it.
