Saw a Berkshire today going westbound on I70 near Belmont Oh. My first sighting this year, oh come to think of it I did see one parked at the rally we were at, at the Ohio Amish springtime rally who was none other than Frog Bob.

There's another Berkshire next to me at the Richmond race in the Azalea flea market campground.

Looking forward to seeing one in front of my house next Friday! We are counting down the days until we pick ours up from the dealer.

That's exciting news. Welcome to the Berkshire family. What did you buy?

Glad to hear you getting a Berk. I thought you had ordered a Georgetown?

We did - good memory! The Georgetown factory messed up and put in the wrong fridge. It took the cubic footage from 22.5 to 12.5. With a family of five this was too great a loss of space and we couldn't accept the coach as built. Luckily, the Berkshire guys had one already in queue with all of the colors/features that we wanted. It was faster to get this Berkshire that was already in the production line than have them completely rebuild us another Georgetown. We need a coach for some trips that we have planned this fall. It was a bit more than we wanted to spend on our first motorcoach, but still comfortably affordable (thankfully). It should keep us from ever feeling the need to upgrade anyway. In the end, I'm certain that we will be happier with this coach. I'm guessing that overall it is going to be much easier to get fuel in the truck lanes than try to navigate a big gas rig with a toad through gas stations (at least in my area). I also plan to spend months at a time on the road in the summer to show the kids the US and I suspect the washer/dryer will be a godsend. Fingers crossed that we are right!

I'd say it worked out perfectly. Could not have planned it any better. :-)

NewRoo,

We debated gas vs diesel many times and many months. In the end, we decided that with some long-haul trips in mind the Berk was the way to go. Every time we're gliding down the interstate on that air ride suspension, we're absolutely convinced we made the right decision. I'm sure you will feel that way too. You won't be 8 hours into the day and say "we should have bought the gasser."
