Hi all, just wanted to share that DW and I have just traded our Keystone Alpine for a Redwood 36RE. We were on our vacation to Borrego Springs Southern California (a must see location) in December when we stopped over in Lazy Days Tucson for a couple of days.
While there we saw "Red" (our name for her) parked up just waiting to be bought!!! Well needless to say following a good look around we fell in love with her. Due to only the 2 day stay over we decided to continue on to Borrego in the Alpine.

A week later we returned and "Red" was waiting and ready for us. I have to say the staff at Lazy Days were phenomenal! They really pulled all the stops out to have us changed over in the day and a half that we were there. We continued back to Texas and as we only had 2 days with her we decided that we would site her in an RV park just 5 miles from our sticks and bricks. We want to be able to make sure all is good before storing.

So far just a number of small things have come to light. We have a leak in one of the rear jacks, which We are told will be replaced rather than fixed. The only other main issue is with the awning not opening correctly. Both of these issues will be warranty work.

So upto today and hopefully for many years and miles to come we are very pleased and happy with our new Redwood.

Steve

Steve, Congratulations on your purchase of "Red".I hope that your travels will all be safe and your new RE serves you well. Please keep us up to date on how your new coach is performing as we will be taking delivery on our RE next month. I think we will follow your lead on camping near home and the dealership for a few days to get bugs worked out.This will be Colorado winter camping so we will know right away if the furnace is going to keep us warm!!Maybe if Redwood sells a few more units there will be enough of us to form a Redwood Owners group.Again , congratulations and happy trails.

Thanks for your kind words flyfisher. You will enjoy your RE.. We have already used our furnace and let me tell you it is quiet and will keep you warm as toast!!! The electric fire will also complete the coziness on those cold Colorado nights!

When you site it be prepared to have a lot of compliments. Today I spent most of the day showing my fellow RVers around the coach!! All said how impressed they were with the workmanshiip of the unit. I will certainly post how she is performing over the next few weeks Good luck on you delivery next month and give us the low down on your day

What exterior color and interior decor did you get? Must be striking to draw the attention and admiration of your neighbors.Did you have to buy much to get your RE outfitted?
We will stay hooked into the forum and post our updates. I am new to this forum thing but it's a great way to share information particularly since Redwood is so new. It's nice to know the furnace is quiet and we are looking forward to coffee in front of the fireplace on those cool mountain mornings.
We have been studying RV web sites ad nausium figuring out how to outfit our coach. I'm sure we will learn as we go along what things are must haves vs what we can live without. The hard part is convincing my bride that fishing rods are a must have and the hair dryer is optioal.
Best regards and happy trails
Brett

Steve,


Congratulations on your Redwood RE.


I agree with you about folks wanting to the see the Redwood. Our first night at a campground last fall, we were eating dinner in the evening and there was a knock at the door. Some folks had seen us pull in earlier and the husband couldn't wait to show his wife our RW 36RL. We invited them back a little later after we finished dinner and showed them around and received many compliments on the coach. We had similar thing happen while we were sitting in the parking lot of Camping World in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The manager of the CW came out and complimented us on how nice our coach looked. We have just the standard exterior color scheme, not the full body paint, which is gorgeous.

Hey Brett, Guy and Phyllis hope all you guys are well. I have the Four color Red,BlackGold and Cream full body paint.

Let me tell you it truly is gorgeous, the comments on the paintwork alone were so complimentary. Many likened it to the quality of a motor home. Because of this type of finish I am going to be protecting the front cap with a product called Diamond Shield. This will stop those frustrating stone chips from ruining the paintwork.

We have the dark wood finish and again this drew a lot of compliments. For the ladies the pantry slide out drawers seemed to be the big hit and the guys.... Well that was the auto leveling of course.

Brett you will be pleased to know that storage has not been compromised in any way and there is enough room for your fishing rod AND your brides hair dryer!!

Guy I hear you with the CW incident we were actually coming back from the one in Katy TX and a truck passed us on the inside and gave my wife the thumbs up.. She said " aww that guy loves the coach honey", I said " maybe it was you and not the coach he was impressed with my beautiful wife". That's how I get my fishing rod in the closet by the front door Brett!!!!!

Keep us posted
Steve and Susan

Steve and Susan,
Thanks for the tip on negotiating storage space with my bride! I really like the color scheme you picked out. We went with the black and silver paint. My bride said we had to match the truck. So ffar she has let me pick out some of the finer appointments like the fresh water hose and pressure regulator, wheel chocks and fIrst aid kit because the color choices were too limited for me to make any significant decorating foobahs!

Anxiously waiting for our coach
Best regards
Brett and Jan

Steve,


That full body paint is gorgeous.........if I could have afforded it, your combination is what I would have ordered. But, we really like the standard finish and we have received alot of compliments on it.

Guy and Phyllis, your paint combo is just as gorgeous it was Susans choice. We have ours because it was on the foorplan we loved the most and available for immediate delivery. But now we have it we are really pleased it was waiting for us!!! Have you any ideas how you will keep the paint work looking good? I know the front cap will take a hit but I also can see the sides taking a hit from passing trucks flinging stones!!

Brett and Jan, your wait will really be worth it believe me. Will you be taking it on a trip any where special for its maiden voyage? I'm glad the tips helped!!!! Funny you should mention the truck/coach co ordination. We have a 2012 silver Chevy 2500 silverado, which kinda clashes with the paint work btw I must let it be known at this stage that this is Susan's truck!!! Soooooooo like you I am not in charge of the color decision making but we have discussed the idea of putting on decals to match those of the coach. We saw a vendor at the RV show here in Houston who had some awesome designs so playing with that idea. What do you guys think?
