New 38GK

(26 days) Carol and I heard today that our camper was on time to be delivered to Denver the week of March 17th. Both excited and ready to load it up and take a trial weekend run. Maybe to Pueblo State lake. Just to try all the systems and see what problems come up.

Excellent idea! Our first stop was Chatfield SP where I installed all the equipment and gave it a rundown.

How about that new one in the springs - Cheyenne mtn?

They are wanting to go to Pueblo where it is wamer LOL!!! Congrads on your new purchase. I'm going to Windish Saturday to look at a 38 Bonus Room that they got in Tuesday. DW and I have been looking to buy a new 5er and go full timing for 7 years. We are retiring in Oct. of this year. We have been focused on the Big Sky. The Big Sky is making some huge changes right now and will look alot like the RW when finished. The 38BR would solve our storage problems. Keystone is talking about leaving off the hitch. We were planning on adding a cargo carrier to the hitch. The DW and I vend (boutique ) at Red Hat Society events and carry about 25 tubs with us filled with merchandise. We enjoy dong the conventions and a little extra income for retirement always helps. I have noticed it seems like less problems from the RW than Montana's and Big Skys. I joined the Montana Forum Sept.2007.

Wonder what they will do on the Big Sky. I think what kept away was Big Sky had no ice maker, no dishwasher, no disk brakes, and the sides of the slides in black was just tacky.

Brad,
Saw pics and specs on the new Big Sky, had all the bells and whistles that you mentioned. It was a proto type at lazydays (I think) in Florida. It may still be on their website. Rumor had it that they were going to build it at a new plant.

Keystone had it posted on the Montana web site for a couple of weeks and then took it down. They are clearly not ready to roll it out yet. A proto type wes shown at the Tampa show and you can view it on http://www.lazydays.com/
Got to run.

OK - I just saw it on Lazydays. It's looking nice - they needed to do something. They need to try and capture some of us Montana alumni that jumped to Redwood

Its not a rumor. They are building it at a new plant. I talked to Mark (Keystone rep) and he said they were overwhelmed with orders. They are taking it slow and producing about 5-7 a week; making changes, improvements and adjustments as problems come up. Lord have mercy on the owners of the first 100 made. LOL I understand the model at Lazydays RV has the shades installed with the wrong side out.

PS each to his own--- I like the black sides on the slides. IMO

I'm just glad to see more models trying to increase their standings with options. The end consumer wins when there's competition.

You can tell a few people on the MOC that now own a Big Sky are a little butt hurt. I agree that the competition between different divisions of a company and other manufactures is a good thing. Improvements to the Big Sky will bring improvements to the RW. If you look closely at the different models at RV shows and come back a year later and look; they copy each other and usually improve on that copy.
