Thanks for asking. The snow storm out a delay on it. Didnít want to drive it home in this mess and they are working off a few punch list items.

Still excited to get it. Been reading all the different manuals on the systems.

37YT on the way

My 2021 Challenger 37YT is now in transit to sunny So. Cal from Rockford, IL. I started a new job recently and really can't take a week off to drive an RV home so I have Horizon moving it across country. Sold my 35' TT last night so my storage spot is open and can't wait for my Challenger to arrive. This whole process of going camping is going to be so much easier now. Looking forward to the new adventures.

Basement use

On another note, with the passthrough basement split by the tunnel, how are you all maximizing your basement storage? Curious if there are any tips or tricks to use the area on top of the tunnel and how you keep things from sliding off that top area and smashing into a door while traveling.

Congrats on the new Challenger. I hope you have a local dealer that will service the warranty items as you are a long way from Rockford and Elkhart. Regarding basement storage, we usually treat the two sides as separate storage areas, only using the top of the raised portion when we have something big to transport. With a roll of that non-slip rubber stuff laid down on the top of the raised portion nothing has slid off for us.

Woo Hoo! Finally. Got it home. Compared to the 2004 Pace Arrow we had this 2021 37FH drives like a dream. That V8 is really sweet.
Barely felt the passing trucks or the crosswind.

CONGRATULATIONS! That's a great looking coach and I'm not just saying that because it's the exact same color as ours.

Thanks. Any recommendations for a source for custom fit dash protector? I am looking at California Car Covers product. Just wondering about others.

We don't use anything on the dash except uv protective cleaners, 3yrs full-time no problems.

Our dash is about as bullet proof as they come (hard plastic of some sort). Have they changed them now?
