AF,

At the beginning of your review you mentioned the AC vibration. Now that we just completed our first week long trip with a functional AC (it's not worked right since be bought the unit in January and it was recently replaced after several failed attempts to fix it.) I've noticed two things.

First, it is a bit on the loud side. You have to crank up the TV and/or speak louder when trying to talk to someone.

Second, my wife first complained of the vibration in the bed when trying to sleep when the AC was on. I happened to be trying out the sleeper sofa and only noticed it a bit but in the bed it was much more noticeable. Have you found anyway to reduce the vibration?

I'm guessing that having a fiberglass roof is an overall advantage, but the downside is that it also conducts vibrations very well.

We know we have a lot to learn and we plan on spending a few years doing just that before we make our purchase. I am a bit nervous about a unit of this length(we intend on towing another vehicle). I am even more uncomfortable when it comes to weights of the various categories of a MV. This one has a ccc of 1652. It is the lowest capacity listed in our brochure for all models in this fleet. My guess is that it isn't enough. But truly... Not a clue. Any thoughts?
If you're 6'6", you're not going to like any bed other than a king size, IMHO. The bed in our Sunseeker is a 60"x80" (classified as a Queen) and at 6'2", I'm cramped; feet stick out the end of the bed, etc.
Length-wise on the coach, it's not bad, although it takes a couple miles to get used to. Plus, we have a Jeep Liberty as a toad. Hardly know the Liberty is back there.
As previously stated, you'll probably find you'll haul less and less, so your weights should go down a bit. I've got storage space I haven't used yet, and some I've already freed-up!

[QUOTE=newRVer;1292520]AF,

It has been over 2 years since I first wrote the review. And please forgive me but I honestly do not remember the AC vibration. The AC has been replaced but for other reasons - however - that might have fixed the vibration issue too. As far as noise - maybe I'm just used to it. I don't find this AC any louder than any of the others we have had on other RVs. They are all loud. Never felt vibration in the bed!
