Looking at the pictures I see no leveling system.
My questions to the group are.
How is the Coachmen quality, especially on the older rigs?
Is the Mirada a good first Class A?
How does one level the coach without a leveling system.
Is it worth it to have one added or should I look for one with a system already installed?
Thanks in advance for your wisdom.
I canít say enough about Coachmen , they are great company, I have never been treated better from any manufacturer. I have a Concord Class C , my wife can drive that but she will not even try to drive a Class A. As far as the leveling system you do want one for sure, no more blocks and time trying to get yourself level, you just press a button, if you looking at after market figure around 4000.00 to have one installed, itís well worth the money, I wouldnít own a unit without one anymore, I guess Iím spoiled. I think Miriada uses the big foot system, you can call them and they can quote you a price. You might have a problem trying to find one with out slides. All there class C have slides, and all resent Miriadas have them that I know of. There quality is really pretty good, but buying used it will be how it was kept up. But you will not find a better company then Coachmen.
