New owner to a Coachmen

Traded in my 2 year old Sunseeker 3170ds for a 2015 coachmen mirada 35bh.

Needed little more room and wanted into a class A.

Any input or suggestions for things I need to know about the new unit that I may not be accustomed to with my Sunseeker ?

Thanks in advance

New owner to a Coachmen

Welcome to the family. I have a 2013 Coachmen Mirada 35 DL. I am very happy with my coach. I have had some issues with it, but Coachmen has taken care of all of them under warranty.

Welcome. We have a 2014 Coachmen Pursuit 31BDP and came from a Wildwood XLite travel trailer. Have had a few issues and Nate and Bob at Coachmen have been great. The dealer was about worthless. Enjoy.

Like nelsonc, I have a 2013 35DL also. It is new to me and I have only had it out a couple of times. So far so good. Enjoy the bunkhouse, it is a great floorplan if you have kids. They just love bunks

And as far as what to expect... you probably have more experience coming from a class C. Moving from our TT to this... it's been a big adjustment! But my husband loves the handling, and the kids are super stoked about all the room during long trips. They are growing way too fast.

Welcome aboard. I'd echo the comments you've already heard here! Coachmen Pursuit 27 here or I'd be happy to share what (little) I know.

Did you go to "general motorhome discussions" then "Coachmen motorhomes" ? There are quite a number of threads and activity. You might contact gocar6. She and DH have a Mirada and have done mods.

I thought Gocar6 had an Encounter? Did they trade for a Mirada?

We do still have our Encounter. (However, I think 1nshort was reading my mind, because we do plan to potentially upgrade to a diesel rig within the next few years. I'd do it today if the right deal fell in my lap! )
