New Owners 2016 38a.

We just picked our new rig on Saturday. PDI revealed bad ac in rear of coach. New one on order. So far we are very happy with our choice in floor plan. Just wanted to say Hi.

Chris

Welcome to the forum Chris, we have a 2015 38A. I think it's the best floorplan out there! This is our first motor home, we are learning a lot in a very short time and this forum is helping us a whole lot. If this is your first also or not, feel free to ask what may seem like stupid questions (I do all the time). Remember, the only stupid question is the one not asked!

Welcome to the forum and the Berk family.

If it's not too late see if you can upgrade to the 15000 a/c. You would probably just have to pay the difference in cost of unit.

Hey Chris! We just picked up our 2016 38a 4 weeks ago! 5,000 miles on our shake down run and enjoyed every minute! Spend two days at the FR plant in Elkhart and learned all the ins and outs of the build. Highly recommend spending some time with those guys. Super passionate about these coaches!!! Happy travels!!

Great looking coach!! Congrats and welcome to the Forms!

I didn't look back far enough in this thread to see that you started it. But, congrats again(for the 3rd time) on you new coach!
