New Texas Tiffin Owner, now full timer's too...

We're in love with our 1st Tiffin, we're selling the stick house and going to be Full Timer's from now on.

We bought a 2010 Zephyr QBC w/30,000 miles, 500hp Cummins, 6 speed-4000 Allison. Very nice for us, we owned several coaches before but this is the best we've had. We have also bought a 28' stacker trailer w/stinger lift (cargo elevator) with (3) 6,000# axles. I added a 11'x8' upper deck the in front of the lift and a 3'x8' upper deck behind the lift for storage. When the lift is in the up position we have a total of 28'x8' second floor for storage, even a 14' closet rod for extra hanging clothes.

Our toads are a 2015 Ford C-Max hybrid on bottom with a pair of HD Ultra Classic "Screaming Eagles" in front of the car.

We're living in Kemah (southeast of Houston) "Full time" now, but still working for a few more years, then we want to become snow birds. Can't wait to spend a summer away from this 106 deg heat.

That sounds like about 75' of pull thru length, that will take a lot of planning to find places to park. Dave
