Anyway, we saw a 2014 38RB model in the Sunset Color. Jason and his wife and family were from New York and moving to Colorado. He says he is on the forum, so maybe he will see this. Seems their washing machine died and they had a service man there. For what it is worth we had the Splendide Washer and dryer from our Sportscoach moved into the Berk. That is what she wanted vs. the Whirlpool. Cost me $330 so I hope it was worth it.

Just wanted to say I purchased now two motorhomes in two years. A Sportscoach Cross-country in 2015 from Motorhome Specialist in Texas and now the Berkshire 38A from Motorhomes 2 Go in Michigan. I must say I had a better experience in Michigan and a great price. MHS could not match the deal I got at Motorhomes 2 Go and the service was better too. Great working with Evan, Micheal, Gene and Jim in Service with the all-day orientation.

Our trip home was much sooner as the Berk is a much better product and essentially very little issues to fix before we left. The only real issue was the Traveler Satellite got stuck in the up position. This happened at the KOA in Indiana the second night. I called Jim at Motorhomes 2 Go and he walked me through the diagnostics to get the satellite to fold down and stow. The multi-use HDMI set up to the 4 TV's in the Berk is fabulous.

Our first night we got in after dark in Woodchip campground. Probably not high on my list of recommendations, and part of the reason we left early, but they were very nice to refund our second night.

Great ride home to Happy Valley, very quiet, roomy and we love the fireplace and heat-pump air system. Even the on demand hot water heater was nice to us.

Looking forward to Myrtle Beach in two weeks. The campground is on the beach. Fishing in the AM and golf later in the day. Yeah Baby!



Congrats on your new coach! I bought my first rv from Evan at motorhomes 2 go. He is a great guy. Also, the dealership was great to deal with. Enjoy the great times ahead

When you're on 31 N. in Indiana, you're going to see a lot of Berkshires! An XL at mile marker 79 an XLT at mile marker 85 and another XLT at mile marker 93

I figured as much Russell! Yep we are in Elkhart. Going over to the diesel division to visit our baby. Signed the chassis with a silver sharpie 😜 and spoke at length with Tommy.

We're going back over tomorrow and the folks at the diesel division are going to meet with us about user requests for upgrades.

No free lunch here (yet ) Went to a restaurant recommended by folks at the Diesel Division - King Wa on Cassopolis. Some of the best Chinese food we have had outside San Francisco!

WILL try the Flippin Cow today for Lunch - Thanks Russell!
