New owners of 2012 Redwood 36RE

Hello everyone,

We just picked up our new to us Redwood out of Corpus Christi. We spent the first 3 nights in it in Corpus Christi then trucked it 1,200 miles back to Bradenton FL. (How's that for a maiden voyage ) This may not sound like a huge feat, but we are complete newbies to RV'S and this was the first time for me to pull anything this large. I have to say I am impressed at how well this Redwood pulls. I'd say I knew within the first 50 miles that I was going to be alright pulling it. But man for the first 3 days looking at it in the campground I was pretty intimidated.

A little about us... My wife Kelly is a travel nurse. So we travel the country from assignment to assignment. Currently we have been taking the housing and moving from apartment to apartment every 3 months. (Moving from apt to apt gets old) So for the past year, we have been doing our homework and looking at every model RV there is. We were already planning to become full-timers. We had narrowed it down to a short list with Redwood being more of our dream RV and not actually thinking a Redwood would be possible. But as luck would have it, we found a Redwood in great shape and within our budget, and here we are, new Redwood owners.

We are looking forward to meeting other Redwood owners as we travel! So if anyone sees us, feel free to say hi!!

Did you buy at Corpus Christi Rv? That's where we ordered ours from 3+ years ago, good sales staff, can't comment on service, never been back.
My sister was a traveling nurse for several years & the constant changing apartments burnt her out, I tried to talk her into a small motor home, but she didn't think she could drive it.
Enjoy your new home & welcome aboard this group of great people!

Welcome to the Redwood community. We have been Redwood owners for 4 1/2 years and over 17,000 miles. We winter just up the road from you north of Palmetto, FL at Winterset RV Resort. Hope you enjoy your Redwood as much as we do ours.

Read the forum thoroughly especially if you are going to be on the road a lot. You will that there are some weak design issue in any RV trailer design........those being suspension, brakes and wheels. The forum has many threads discussing those issues and what you can do to improve the product and how to minimize those issues.

Again, welcome to the Redwood community.

Welcome to the forum. My wife is also a travel nurse and we bought this unit for this very reason. She will start traveling in about 3 months. I have spent the past 7 months getting my RW ready. Please stay tightly connected with this forum. This forum has lots of information of problems that have occurred with others, and it will save you problem in the future. As I read, others mention their problems, I go to my RW and inspect for the same problems and I overt problems in the future.
