New Owner- Jamboree 26J (2008)
As a rock climber, photographer and educator I love to travel and visit places. I spent most of that time in tents and sleeping bags. For a few years, we upgraded to a pop-up camper. I was always on the fence about an RV, but I did always find the convert vans great. (Spent a year living in a van when I was younger. Before Vanlife.)
Over Christmas break, my family and I rented a 24ft Class C to see if it met our needs. We hit the road from Southern California to the North West tip of Washington. (Minus 6 miles because of Covid. To make a long story short, we decided that a class met our family's needs. Wife, 1-year-old son, 5-year old daughter and two small dogs.
We've been shopping around ever since. Yesterday, we drove a 2008 Jamboree 26 J with 48,000 miles off the lot. We'll use it today to outfit and familiarize ourselves with it.
Drove from San Diego to Los Angeles. A very nice ride. I did try to turn the generator on when I go home, but it wouldn't crank even though it turned on with no issues on the lot. (Aux Battery appears dead according to indicator.) I also heard it could be because I am below a 1/4 tank.
Trip to Cosco or Sams for a full tank of gas and a new mattress and we'll go from there. Next week, three days of dry camping to see how it does.
