No longer Soon To Be Owner
Here's a picture of the coach at home.
Before we bought the coach, my kids and I built a scale model from LEGO of the coach. We then we went outside and measured the street, driveway, mailbox, lamp posts, etc that would be obstacles. We transferred all this to scale (1 inch = 1mm) on a poster board. We built the RV model with a 55 degree turning radius like the Freightliner website stated. We tried every conceivable approach to the driveway and found none that would work (except 1). I had to pull as close to my curb as possible, line the back wheels up with my mailbox and cut the wheel all the way to the side and backed in.
You probably can't tell but our driveway is on the side of our house and is only 1 lane wide. At the mouth of the driveway, we have a lamp post on one side and a mailbox on the other so there is no room to go over the curb if needed (probably not a good idea anyway).
This was an awesome lesson in math for the kids and what do you know, it worked perfectly. Exactly as our LEGO coach had been able to navigate the driveway, our real coach was able to as well. We got it in the first try without any readjustment.
The kids were thrilled and I told them this was a perfect example of math at work.
Anyway, thanks for all the nice welcomes from everyone and I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of question of the other Berkshire owners.
Thanks again everyone!
