Stepping up - “new” to us 08 Camelot

Hi all,
Wife and I just stepped up our game. Started off with an old 83 Pace Arrow class A years ago. Then moved to a toyhauler trailer. Now after about 6 years with out the hauler, we picked up beautiful 08 Camelot 36PDQ. Love it! Cant wait to enjoy it.

Congratulations. It is a very very complicated rig and you have come to the right place for advice coming up to speed on all the mechanisms.

Hi S@ndm@n; Congrats on the new coach. There are not too many 36' Camelot's out there. I looked at an 08 in Grass Valley, Ca. on my way back from Az. in 2013. At that time that was the only one on the market. It was a nice coach, just out of my price range. This is just out of curiosity, but if you mind me asking, did you find this 36' at a dealer or private party. Again, just curious. Thanks in advance.

Dealer here in Moorpark. He took it in trade on a giant Newmar. Just lucked upon it while looking at another DP.

Hey S@ndm@n:
That's our old Camelot. We traded it with Tom Lindstrom when we picked up our 2019 Dutch Star a few weeks ago.
I did a few trick things to it that Tom may not have known about. I also have tons of pdf and soft copy manuals that I picked up mostly from the great people on this forum that I would be happy to share with you. If you have any questions, PM me and I'll try to answer them for you. She is a great coach and we have lots of wonderful memories with her. I hope you have the same.
Congratulations.
Cheers,
Mike

Yes it is! I do have a couple of quick questions i'll shoot to you. THanks for taking such great care of it. No one I know can believe it's 11 years old.

Also good luck with your new rig. Tom's lot is in town for me, and I love to just walk through the dutch stars to see what I cant have. lol
