Learn something new every day. I did not realize the early 360 HP and 340 HP had the same air bags.

I agree with Phil. While I am within my weight limit I did upgrade my tires this spring and when the air bags require change I will upgrade them.

Personally I question how wise it is to build these large coaches on the small 340 HP chassis. Maybe they should be restricted to 36 foot and below coaches. Owners new to this hobby or motorhomes do not understand weight issues and depend on the manufactures to build adequate coaches. Forest River is not the only manufacture building large coaches on these chassis. It is ashamed to find out after you make such a large purchase that your rig cannot carry the minimum items needed to enjoy camping.

Fortunately my 2008 does not have all the weight items the newer coaches have so I can carry a fairly large pay load. At least enough for my needs.

Door sticker says "Combined weight of occupant and cargo should never exceed 16,702lbs" and my tire stickers have different tire sizes.

So, I have an appointment at Elkhart on Nov 9 for airbags and tires.

Randy has been excellent to deal with and reaffirms my decision to purchase this coach.

Any recommendations on where to overnight that Sunday night? Randy said I can park at the west end of their lot, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions.
I suspect it's a typo; but does your yellow sticker actually specify a weight of over 16K lbs for occupants and cargo? If so, FR needs to get a new computer to print the yellow labels.

Or am I missing something??

Boowho??

We stayed at Elkhart Campground. They have a bunch of pull-through spots that are easy to park and the services were fine. We actually stayed there on 2 separate occasions.

That 16000 lbs of cargo made me do a double take too! I read it about 4 times because I thought I was misunderstanding it.

Excellent. I will probably book a site here.

Thanks!

What the hell is the deal with your info? It is listing 275 tires but you have 255? I believe that's a sticker for a Charleston as it lists a tag Axle. They must have weighed them and got the stickers mixed up. Was that even your vin number?

I thought that also, but if you look on the right side, the "interim" tire line doesn't have a check in the box.

I have 4 stickers that list tire size. Only 1 says 255. I'll post the rest when I can.

And yes. All the VIN numbers are correct.
