2007 Lexington 235 - first trip
Just returned from a 1500 mile trip with the Lexington 235. The Chevy drives like a dream. It so much easier than the Ford E450 that I had on a Coach House 272XL. I could drive the 235 all day without feeling like I'd been in a marathon wrestling match. It's not a lot different than driving my Silverado.
My gas mileage varied from tank to tank with a low of 10+ and a high of decimal points away from 13. Overall average was 11+. Can't complain about that at all.
The big surprise was the black tank. It was inches away from a nasty surprise. My wife was using the sink for her morning rituals and had drained it a couple of times. I hadn't emptied the black tank for a few days because we've never filled one even on a 4-5 day camping trip. I walked by the bathroom and smelled something a little funky. I flipped the lid on the toilet seat and was greeted with a murky, smelly green surprise. One more drained sink and the spouse would have been standing in it. Anyway, now I know that the sink drains to the black tank, but I almost learned it the hard way.
On the whole, I have to give the Lexington 235 high marks for mileage, handling, maneuverability, and driving comfort. Sleeping accommodations are less than ideal, but the advantages of the 235 are worth it.
