Let me be the first

Hi all,
Thought that I would be the first to log a post to this section of the forum. I recently picked up a Berkshire 390 BH. Haven't taken any trips in it yet but so far I am fairly pleased with the coach. I would appreciate any feedback from other Berkshire owners as to their experiences with their coach.

Hi tmmar and welcome. I don't own a Berkshire, but kinda felt sorry for your post sitting here all by its lonesome. I was looking at your floorplan and the 360 virtual tour of its sister model and it is VERY impressive.

welshman599,
Thanks for the post. Yes, I was getting a little lonely, but what the hey!! Yes, so far I am very pleased with the unit. It's fit and finish are very nice as are the amenities. For the money, it is a very good value. I just hope that it holds up as well as it looks.
Hope you have many happy camping days this year.

tmmar,i purchased a 390bh a couple months back, i had a couple other posts about my troubles,first trip wiper motor goes out spent 3 weeks in shop while they tried to figure out who was going to pay, finally resolved.2nd trip fan belt breaks wraps itself around fan tears up fan,radiator etc,spent 1 week in shop, at least freightliner fixed that problem quick. 3rd trip WONDERFUL.we are taking it down to florida for a long weekend the 23rd. i am pleased with it now.but it was a rocky beginning.i think if it wasnt for camping world shop in little rock, i would have had a bad bad time,, i bought the unit from rv world in lakeland florida,who gave me what i feel was a great price.i do think the next time i buy i will do it from a local dealer for the dealer support being a new rv'r i ahve learned alot in the past 3 months.. i know plenty more to learn and look forward to it. would i buy another berkshire yes i love the floorplan and my family does too which is the most important !!! happy travels chaser

We were discussing that topic an another thread... You're right, there is some benefit (hopefully) in going with a good local dealer for dealing with those annoying problems.

Berkshire 390 BH

We love our Bunkhouse!!!! We had some water leaking in the front of the bus. Took it and and thought it was repaired. Besides water problem we love it. Special ordered it and had no carpet put in the front of the bus and in bunk areas, so no spills or dirty feet from the kids. There is carpet under table, couch and chair and in bedroom. Great bus! Kids love the bunks and even adults can sleep in them.

First, I am a newbie on this forum and want to say hello.
Second I am wondering if you have gotten the water problem fixed?
Thanks in advance.
