Hello from Texas

Nice to be here. I am considering purchasing a Stampede 195DS. Does anyone here have any experience with them?

Welcome.
I don't have experience with a Stampede.

Thanks all. Yes. bike, it is a hybrid. I currently have a Coleman/Fleetwood Saratoga PUP and tired of the extensive set up. Getting a little to old for all that work.

Welcome, from Houston!

I've not had a hybrid like that. We considered it. But from my research, the main difference between that and the PUP I used to haul was more weight, less canvas and not much else different. With a PUP, I got tired of hearing all the other RV generators at night in State Parks. I don't foresee that much of a difference with a hybrid. But, I could be wrong. That was just just my logic from people I've spoken with FWIW.

Yep, Don, no too much difference; we pulled the trigger snf bought it this morning. difference from PUP- full bathroom, tons more storage, a/c with vents, heating with vents, built-in microwave, tv with dvd player (if that is important to you, not really to us, but nice to have), most importantly, much less set-up time.

Cool. Congrats! Would love to hear how you like it after a couple of nights when comparing to PUP.

Howdy, Bob; a little off subject here, but how are you liking your ecoboost? Just got one a couple of months ago,same rear end ratio. How do you like it and what kind of mpg are you getting while towing? I have/had a 3000 lb PUP and was getting about 14 mpg towing flat land and about 12 in the hills.
