Just waiting for confirmations and delivery dates. Hope to get both units before Canadian May Long Weekend... used to be sailers, now we own a Land Yacht!
Plan to go to Nova Scotia this summer to check out retirement property and then plan a circumnavigation of North America in 2015 when I retire.

See you out there!

Congratulations BradPAjax! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

attention Toby's Home

Did you take look at the FB version for the full bath...from what I gather most of you have not seen one...very similar to the RL only difference I can see is split bath with a full size shower

We finally settled on and started the purchase of a 36rl. The only thing that I think needs addressing is the size of the shower. I'm a big guy and would have loved to have a weee bit more room. All that said my wife and I are very happy and comfortable with our choice. We are too far for a factory tour so this forum has had an impact on our decision. Oh buy the way how many of you have opted for the generator? We no longer dry camp but this will be the first time in many years to not have that back-up power. ?Thanks forum Jay and Linda

Jay and Linda..Welcome to our small but growing family! I too don't dry camp much at all but I opted for the generator for a emergency back-up home and for stopping along our path and taking a nap while we travel with the A/C on.

Thanks for the quick responces. Perhaps a smaller but adequate third party (Honda) would take care of those layovers.

Congratulations to all the new owners. We are a growing group!!! We opted for the generator in our 36RE. There are a couple places we will dry camp for 3-5 days and felt like the gen would be needed to run AC units, TV, micro wave etc.We also considered the unforeseen power outs in full hook up campgrounds.It was a pricey decision as you well know but we are comfortable with our decision.

We had two honda 2000i's. one would run everything except the a/c. sometimes one would run the microwave, depends on what else we had on. we would hook them up in parallel to run everything, with no problems. I have friends who bought the honda 3000. they complain about the weight and sometimes they can't get the a/c to operate, because of the temp.

They would have only been able to operate 1 air conditioner with there Honda 2000 's in parallel even doing so it would have been close to the limit for the Honda's as they are a inverter style generator.

Congrats!!!!!!! We have been in our 36RE for a short time and are really enjoying it. We have FT since 2005 and what an awesome lifestyle. My wife volunteers for the Corps of Engineers at Lake Waco, TX and we have a beautiful view of the lake.
