Haha ! I like that, problem is not quite ready to full time yet. Unless I win the Power Ball or find a suitcase full of cash on the side of the road, then it'll be game on.

There is nothing like a wildfire taking everything you own for a cleansing! We lived full time for 2 1/2 years in our Berkshire so we had very little.

Sorry to hear that. Are you still full timing in the Berkshire ?

We currently have vacation house in Sage California but yes and are getting ready to hit the road again full time. The wildfire came at a good time if there is such a thing we were ready to retire so we did and bought the Berkshire and traveled.

We have a 2012 390BH60. Although we had recurring problems with the step, water heater and creeping slide ... all issues are now rectified.

This is our third class A. Although the workmanship on the Berk is not as good as in our Triple E or Fleetwood Discovery, the Berk provides great value for the money. I'm sure you will.be happy with your choice.

We are very glad to have the 360. As mentioned in previous posts weigh can be an issue even with the 360. Although I never travel with any water in tanks, I am still very often close to max weight and weight distribution is often a factor.

On of the huge selling features of the Berk is the large basement storage capacity. This however can be a mixed blessing. Take my advice, get in the habit of doing frequent purges of all storage compartments and weigh the unit at the start of each trip.

With a full load, towing a 5000lb toad at 70mph we get about 10.5mpg

We've a 2011 390RB-40. Ref your question about mileage, we get 10.75mpg towing a CRV on a Roadmaster tow dolly. We've two relatively minor complaints: cheap, easily-damaged veneer cabinetry and poor lighting (no real thought when the OEM light fixtures were installed). Some of the places for adding fluids were also thoughtlessly located i.e., the DEF tank is on the wrong side for bulk pumping, some others). It's pretty clear that the designers never used the finished product. Otherwise, we're pretty happy with it. While we don't full-time, we travel in it from mid-April through the end of October. Oh, we're none too happy with the Girard instant water heater.

Even though my 2012 390-40 BH has had it share of problems, I love it and now have 36,000 miles on it. FR Customer Service has been great. I would again pick a Berkshire over other brands, but probably a -60. As I mentioned earlier, the -40 has weight carrying issues and a limited tranny.
