New 3051 in the driveway

Picked it up at RVW this past Wednesday (They day before Thanksgiving).

There were couple of small hiccups, but both were solved quickly and to our satisfaction.

We drove off the lot and started home (Washington), with the DW and I taking turns driving. Spent 49 hours in motion during a 70-hour trip.

Everything worked as advertised and we are very pleased with our purchase and are looking forward to lots of fun times.

Congrats on the new rig and the marathon return home. Also congratulations on having a DW who'll get behind the wheel. I have yet to see my significant other even sit in the drivers seat

n-e-d you will have to do what I did. We were stuck in traffic and I told her I had to go as I jumped out of the drivers seat. She drove MH with car trailer next 75miles. Not scared of it now!.

Hi,

Congratulations! I'm glad you had a good experience and the MH was in good shape.

Did you hit any bad weather?

My brother and I had a great trip to RVW and back to SoCal in October. It was well worth the 4800 mile round trip.

Enjoy your new coach!

Scott

Congratulations. Happy to hear that all went well. We ordered a 2801 two weeks ago from RVW. Can't wait. How long did it take from the time of order to pick up date?

sdgscott - Pouring rain through most of Iowa, single digit temps from SD through to central Idaho. No snow out of the sky, but plenty on the ground.


sgtlm17 - Ordered in early September, for late Nov delivery. No full body paint, which typically adds a couple of weeks.

Congratulations! We have had ours just short of two years now and really love it!! We have 22,000 miles logged so far from Missouri to Washington (state) to Texas to Minnesota to South Carolina to Florida and plenty in between. Great times! Enjoy!!
