Donít see to many new models on here, but we just purchased a new 2019 Holiday Rambler Admiral 32S. So far we love it after a few glitches with dealer mainly. Traded up our MBS Solera that was getting too small for us since we retired. Only thing Iím not loving is the fuel mileage, but there are trade offs.

Two Holiday Ramblers pulling Jeep Gladiators. On our way to a forest cleanup event. That was a fun trip.

I have the HWH jacks. I have one that does not want to retract all the time. I now end up putting a 6x6 and a 2x6 stacked about 3 inch's below the jack. Once I bleed the air bags which is part of the leveling process, the jack is sitting on the stacked wood. Now when I retract the jack after leveling it comes to rest completely retracted on the stack of wood. Then I all I need to do is let the Air Pressure buildup in the air bags and its off the stack of wood by a few inches.

But WD40. I'm not a believer in using it except to loosen rusted nuts. But years ago HWH had in some of the service documents to use WD40 on jacks that would not retract. Early this years I was talking to one of HWH service people and he said that HWH recommends to only use WD40.

2001 Holiday Rambler

We purchased a damaged 2001 Holiday Rambler in 2011 with the intent to repair it and sell it for a profit. We took it for a trial spin to the Texas gulf coast, and were hooked...never even advertised it for sale! We have spent about 3-4 months a year in it and have made a lot of cosmetic improvements, as well as removing and repairing a slide. We've walked through a lot of motorhomes for sale, stepped out and said "nope! I'd rather have mine"
It has been a great rig.

2015 Vacationer 36SBT

Starting my 2nd year with a 2015 Vacationer 36 SBT. I like it and the design and floor plan is great. My only complaint thus far is the engine noise and heat from the gas engine. We recently test drove a diesel coach and the ride is so much better, but the cost for diesel is so much more. I'm also not impressed with the quality of the "leather" used for the furniture and am looking for replacement options given that much of it is starting to show cracks.

We bought our 2007 HR Scepter in 2011 and have put on 85,000 miles since then. We love our coach and are happy with the choice we made. We are full-timing in her for the tenth year. Sad to say we had to park her for the winter and had to move in with our kids for the next six months as we are unable to go south with the border closed.

Just sold my 2009 HR Scepter

Thank god got rid of my HR. Constantly breaking down, Throwing money at this thing like nobody's business. What a piece of crap. Had it 6yrs and never again. Fly and enjoy no more break downs. Please don't tell me you have your own bed and the other bull lines every camper says. Living the dream HA, I can fly first class rent a car and stay in high end hotel cheaper than MH cost me per year to repair.

Ours is an Invicta

We looked at a used Tiffin Open Road being sold privately but it needed far more work that I wanted to mess with to be taken on the road.

So the wife and I drove down to Grand Rapids in Sept. to "just look" at what was available with a wash/dryer option. The only rig on the lot that was a MH was a HR 2020 Invicta.

They assured us that the Washer/dryer combo could be installed and the coach could be ready the following week.

Hmmm we said to the sales guy. My wife looked at me and said we are not going to find a new one with everything we need given the shortage of MHs currently available. I also looked at a new Tiffin Open Road on-line but it was sold the day before we drove down.

So we wrote a check and had a Blue Ox tow bar added and our Ford Explorer set up for towing.

All took about 2.5 weeks before everything was ready.
We have taken it on two in state short trips 8-10 each both with full hook ups.

Heading to the SW in 12 days and will be living in it for some 5 months.

With the Ford V10 it is quite loud vs a diesel pusher, but has everything we need for now. If we do not like it after the longer trip we will sell it and stick with our 19' fiberglass trailer. If we like it then we will sell the trailer.

While we were waiting of the sales guy to finish up the stack of papers another sales guy walked over and asked if we bought it. We said yes and he said he has to call 2 very disappointment people that were in earlier in the day. Also 2 women drove up later that day from Indiana wanting to buy it.

So for now we are part of the HR "family"


Cheers,
Bat Dude and family

We bought our 97 Vacationer in August. Total greenhorns, but we're figuring things out as we go. My husband changed the oil today with no issues. I love my rig, but we hope to upgrade to a new HR next year. Heading out for our winter escape in two weeks, so we're doing the best we can to make sure all systems are ready.

2008 Holiday Rambler 40SKQ

Purchased our "new to us" 2008 40SKQ in May of this year. Love it!!!
I should have stepped up years ago. Thanks to everyone here on these forums, I'm learning, and have learned a lot about my first DP. It was a little overwhelming at first, and sometimes I think this thing is smarter than me...but i always prevail. LoL
