We've had ours since January. Getting ready for another 9 day trip in 2 weeks. Gatlinburg this time. We love it. Even more than our old 5er we had for 13 years.

I hope you enjoy yours too.

We stayed at Anchor Down Rv Resort in Dandridge TN. Best Campground ever.

Have had our 2011 FE BH for about 10 months, we have hauled it about 400 miles so far and spent about 25 nights in it. We love it, normally just the wife and I but occasionally our kids visit Headed to New Harbor Maine this week, nothing beats a pot of Lobster while camping on the Maine Coast

#5!
I guess it is safe to say you are pleased with Coachmen 5th wheels?

There certainly are a lot of very large RVs these days whether trailers or fifth wheels since I was a kid. When we (my parents) got a 31' TT in 1975 I thought it was absolutely huge. Now I see 35+ everywhere. Our 37' TT still seems large. In my state (Missouri) nearly all of the 100 state parks now have extended 50 amp sites for the monster RVs.

I've had my issues over the years, but nothing that would make me say 'never again'. I guess I'm loyal to a point. As long as I'm happy and you got what I want I'm buying. Screw me one time and I'm done forever. That's why I don't drive ford's lol! Anyway, the biggest driving factor is our membership in the coachmen caravan/owners club. Love the trips and tours, and the people we meet.

What type of coachman trailer do you own and how long..

In the 3 months since we brought our TT home, we've taken 6 trips for a total of 27 days, over 3500 miles traveled and 8 states.
