CSMRetired ~ all is well here so far. We are stationary until the end of March so we'll see when we start moving again. Hope all is well with you & all other Sportscoach owners.

Travel safe to all who are on the road!

Sounds like y'all are doing well. We are looking forward to heading out the end of this month and spending February in Arizona.

Great to hear from you.

Hello all, We just bought a 2016 Sportcoach 360DL in Tx. Disappointing start.....purchase day we were told the tiles had to be replaced due to the main living area slide operation . Left the next day and by the time we drove it to Ft. Worth two check engine lights were on. Stopped the coach and called the dealer. Just received encouragement that it would "clear" in a hundred miles or so. Luckily made it home but the dreaded "Stop Engine" lite came on as I was in the storage/parking area I have rented . Of course that engine power unit enforces its command such that all you can basically do is idle with little power. So on Jan 8, we buy the coach, on Jan 11 it's been towed to the nearest Freightliner shop. I also found a hydraulic leak while looking under the unit while the tow operator was getting things set up. I will say that our complementary Coachnet Roadside assistance experience, to get service/towing set up was exceptional. Looking forward to getting these initial bugs , I hope that is it, fixed. Looking forward to seeing the USA. We are fm done with cruising.

Sorry you are having issues. I still want to say congrats on your purchase even though you are having issues. Once you get them worked out I think you will love the Sportscoach, we love ours.

I looked up the 360DL after I read your post, nice coach. You're really going to enjoy that induction cooktop I know DW does.....it's a lot quicker and not near as much heat. PLUS, no propane being used.

Did you happen to buy from MHSRV, just curious, that's where we buy from. We have purchased three coaches from them over the years.

We love the layout and drove wonderfully back to Alabama. Looking forward to settling into a good unit. Staying positive! But with a watchful eye.

Watchful eye is always good, even with ours. We have a bug jump out once in a while but when you are driving an apartment down the highway......bugs will jump out.

Where in Alabama are you located? The reason I ask is, if you are rally goers, DW and I are co-host along with BamaBob and his DW Anne-Marie. We call it "Bamaganza", this year it will be Oct 5 - 9 in Naccalula Falls in Alabama.

Also there is an annual rally for Forest River in Goshen, IN. This years dates are August 14 -20. The link for the information is:

FROG - Forest River Owners Group

The Forest River rally is quite big, over 700 RV's last year and a great time. If you decide to go, register "early" I can't stress that enough...it fills up fast. Registration should begin mid-late March.

There is also a rally for just Coachmen owners at the same location some time usually in June, I don't have the dates for that one.

Keep posting on here and asking question or making comments, this is a great forum with some great people and a lot of good sound advice.
