New rig for us!

Just got a 2015 class c 2500ts with just under 11k miles on it. It's a Chevy instead of the ford. My last class c was a ford and I must say I'm impressed so far with the ride and drive of it. Time will tell as I have not made a trip yet just the 45min drive home. Just wanted to share my joy with like minded people! This one is so nice in so many ways and the layout is amazing! Also very thankful the last owner left all the paperwork and owners manuals with it. Just spent the last 4hr reading every one of them.

Congratulations. We have the 2500tsc as well and love it. You will find more room around the dog house in the cab and with the 3 slide outs, it really opens up. Take a look at adding a swivel plate yo the passenger seat like I did. Allows you to rotate it around and use in the living space.

We got it for $59k. After all the extras, warranty, tax, tag ect we were at $65.5k. We did 8 year finance at 4.9% I thout it was a bit out of my price range, but got such a great deal on our last rv that after 2 years of use we still made over $5k on the trade in.

Another Sunseeker (Ford chassis) owner here. I'm really happy with mine. Yours is a very attractive unit and promises many good times. You did fine on price. They are in demand. The folks on this forum are overachievers at helping one another and have freely shared knowledge.
See ya on the road.

Thanks! I felt like it was a fair price and the unit was so clean! I don't think the previous owners used anything but the bed and tv. I saw it the day it came in before the dealer even had a chance to inspect it or cean it. And hope to see you on the road!

We have a 2014 Sun Seeker TS and are very pleased with it. Like you I think the previous owners only used the bed. Came with 14,000 km. It has a solar panel so battery maintenance is no issue , air bags and lots of other goodies. including the air ride, big foot levelers and swivel passenger seat.
Ours is the E-450 and we have no issues with power and because of the size it works good to get into parking lots and camp sites.
We are sure you will be very satisfied.

I wish mine had solar or an easy way to add it. But it does have the air bags and Bigfoot leveling jacks and that was a big deal for me.

Ours came with the solar panel a (Go Power Unit) but we have had panels installed on a number of travel trailer In the past. Not and issue as the wiring goes down through the fridge vent from the roof and the panel is on the cupboard right across from the Goucho. Nice little option and because of this we seldom use the generator. Except to make popcorn or use the micro wave.

One thing I neglected to mention is to get the front end aligned. After a few camping trips we had this done and it made a world of difference as both sides required some shims to bring it into the factory specs.
We run 50 to 60 pounds in the air bags.


Cheers

We were concerned about this on our first class c. But have found it's not a big deal for us. We camp and drive all the time.
We don't have a toad. But set up and take down takes less than 5 min. So we don't see a need for a toad. Press 5 buttons to take in the slides, leveling jacks, and awning. Put the power and water line up and we are done. Might be a big deal for some people but my wife and I have it down pat. She does the inside and I do the outside and it's very rare that it takes up more than 5 min.

We do not have a toad either but in most cases do not see the need for one. Yes you are right my wife does the inside and I do the outside of our Sun Seeker for take down. Big thing though is not to be in to great a hurry. Camping is not a rushed sport , especially with two grand kids involved.
