Another newb from Colorado

I have been looking for a bunkhouse model to replace my 2001 Monaco 36R. Looked at the Damon, the Tiffin, the Fleetwood etc. So my wife and I go to the RV show where they hold the Stock Show and amazingly enough there happens to be Berkshire 390BH. Well you all know what happens next - YES I'm going to by the darn thing! We are looking forward to it as we have 3 children 14, 11 and 7 and should get many years of family memories out of it. It seems to be a good coach for the money. Now if I could just get all those lookie-loos out of MY coach!

Welcome Neighbor!
How was the show? We talked about going over there, but life got in the way.
Where abouts are you in this beautiful state? I'm sure you and the family will love the new rig!
C'mon SPRING!

We live in the Littleton area. The show was a lot of fun. We were somewhat disappointed as there were not many diesel pushers to look at but there was the one we bought so it all worked out. A tone of 5th wheels and hardsides there!

There are a number of 390bh owners here so you should be able to get any questions you have answered.

Congrats again and enjoy!!!

Welcome, TaterColo, I know Littleton well since I have worked there for the past 26 years, and have camped at Chatfield many times. I live in Evergreen myself, and hope to see you down the road.

Thanks. We to camp at Chatfield too and we really like Carter Lake. I joke that you can see my porch light of my house from loop D :-). The only issue I have is how do I put my boat in the water? I have never seen a big class A do that. I guess I bring extra beer and offer it to the people camping next to me with a truck.

That would be BAD - Very expensive... I guess I will need to bring lots of stash to pay off the next-door camping person that has a truck to put my boat in.
