Smile Berkshire 410QS

Hi,
My husband and I have just purchased the new 2011 Berkshire 410QS, we were told there were only 8 of these made and two of them are from our dealership in Oklahoma, wondering if anyone out there has one of these models and how they like it, ect, any info would be appreciated. We actually pick the coach up on Thursday, we traded in our 2011 Wildcat 5th wheel and 2009 Z71 Chevrolet Truck. Just thought we wanted to travel in style, actually we are planning on retirement, I retired last year from the USAF and my husband will retire in 2014. Would love to hear from anyone who has one of these or a Berkshire for tips, advice, whatever you feel we need to know about.
Thanks
Tom and Melissa Payne

Know exactly what you mean tncruiser. Want a House or a condo in Orlando? If I could dump either one I to could move up from my Gtown and spend more time on the road.

I wasn't even aware of the 410, but I can tell you we are very pleased with our Berkshire 390bh. It's a great rig and best bang for the buck by a long shot.

Now I'm really confused. I went onto the Forest River website and they don't list a floor plan for a 410 in the Berkshire. Could your rig have been a Charleston?

No, it isn't a Charleston, was told from Forest River that it was only one of seven that was made. It doesn't show up on their website it was a special edition model.

Cool! It is always nice to have that something unique. With the rig being 41', which is an assumption on my part, do you have a tag axle. I know 40/41 is about max to go without a tag.

Yes, it is 41 feet long but it doesn't have a tag axle, it has the bigger HP engine.

I hope you enjoy your new Berkshire! We have an "08" 390QS that we use as often as we can. Are you at Altus or Tinker? My first base was Cannon, the longest 17 months of my life. Enjoy you retirement.
