    Nice looking rig. The gas fill on the rear comes in handy for filling from either side. I don’t agree with the commenters that wish you’d stayed with a smaller rig. Everyones needs/situation is different. If you got it - flaunt it. Congrats brah! 👍

    I know you probably already know this but kitty proofing under the front dash and slide mechanism will be an important part of your setup and travel prep routine. I “lost” one of my furbabies for12 hours before we realized he could access the front dash from the driver’s side foot pedals and he came tearing out from his hiding place when we started the engine! We searched the entire RV park for him thinking he had gotten out somehow. Congratulations on the new rig! I miss the open road!

    So much for the simple life. I dunno... call me crazy, but I enjoyed your channel better 5 years ago when you had your 1983 Ford Fleetwood Tioga and you were wingin' it. This new thing's 'a bit' over the top. I mean, yes, it's nice, but it's out of reach for most people looking into this lifestyle. It's just hard to identify. Those who are creative, innovative and adventurous (Eg; Adventure Van Man, Element Van Life & CheapRVliving) and are living in their vans, minivans, SUVs, even Class Bs are exciting to watch. You're just cruising around now in a humongous, baroque, lavish Class A that chugs fuel, is hard to maneuver and park anywhere/everywhere, and probably eats expensive mechanical parts like a kid eats Peeps!!! (God, I hope not!!!) At this point, it's probably cheaper to get an apartment and just fly to different places from time to time and stay at motels/hotels/AirBNB! Good luck with it, though... you're a great guy no matter what you're in!

      Im happy for him, but id say this thing has extremely poor space management. If thats what it looks like slides out then in is going to suck. Id go with something smaller personally. But hey, its what they wanted and Im still happy for them both! Big purchase

    Looks great! Just a note about auto levelers since you've never used them... NEVER RAISE REAR WHEELS OFF THE GROUND without blocking the front wheels. Once you raise rear wheels off ground there is nothing to stop coach from moving forward or back! The levelers could bend or slide and you'll be in a real pickle! Enjoy.

    Take out that dumb converter..(batter charger element).. and replace it w/ an intellachoise or the like 60-70 amp.. that won't just cook your batteries all the time.. Your looking at 2 wires. pos and neg.. and a 110 plug or 110 house wires.. and hopefully your batteries will recover. Might take a few weeks as they will need to be in the emusifly cycle some . Or if they still won't top off to 13-14 volts. U will be getting new ones in the future.. and Congrats on the new RV.. Coachman before Thor Bought them out?? Are your slides hydraulic? and is your roof rubber or fiberglass??
