We have, and continue to visit BB&B for STUFF for our coach. Their 20% off on a regular basis sure helps!!

I think I've had more of a shock at the cost of outfitting our Redwood than actually buying the Redwood. I knew the coach was going to be expensive, but have been surprised how all this little stuff adds up (nothing from the pop up camper is transferring to the Redwood). It's fun, though.

Add to your list things like the surge protector, satellite TV antenna, air pressure sensors and the list keeps going. These end up being expensive to to equip but thankfully most of it will transfer into the next Redwood.

It sure does. We've been buying quality STUFF so hopefully won't have to replace it a couple years down the road. This STUFF will transfer to the next unit!

Yeah, I agree, we've spent more than I can imaging setting this thing up. funny we spent so much time and effort getting rid of stuff when we sold the S&B home just to turn around and buy new stuff for the coach??? Go figure!!

Ya, figure $10-15K extra for gadgets and stuff. Wife is not liking that I've deferred the couch for the house once again

But man do I love that satellite antenna!


PS - BB&B and Camping World stuff can be viewed as dollars=pounds. Be sure to hit the CAT scales after each large shopping splurge

Thanks AA. We've never before WEIGHED a decision like we have when provisioning. We probably look silly holding two similar products and saying, "This one is lighter....."

hahaha - that's exactly it.

I usually spend all winter buying things I can't live without - then the first spring trip I hit the scales and then realize I will be living without some of it

And that's just ME! - it's the same with the Redwood, but to a larger scale

We were on a first name basis at BB&B by the time we were outfitted. Also, I learned that Amazon has many of the same items as CW, but usually at a better pric.

I don't know when our shopping will stop for our new 38FL, hopefully soon, but I just placed another Amazon order last night for > $875. OUCH! You got to love Amazon Prime!

I have certainly supported them plus BB&B, Target, Costco and a few others in a big way getting all that we need.

It's good though, great way to start fresh.

I hit the stores, and hubby hit Amazon. Went WAY over my estimate of outfitting the RW at $1000.00. Silly me!

Yep...I've spent a whole lot more than that. Plus around 10k worth on the truck. I could easily spend another 3000 on the accessories for the Redwood.

Haven't seen our satellite system since it was installed and was planning to hit a scale as soon as I get home.

What did your system weigh when you installed it.

Apparently one of my new "favorite" stores is the 'Container Store'. Just ask my credit card company - LOL.

One note though is their current offer for $15 gift card for June for every $100 spent in May. We should have broke a $300 purchase last week into 2x $150 buys, me buy some my wife buy the other stuff, and could have doubled up on the $15/$100 gift cards. Just a thought, still lots of fun stuff to organize the fridge, freezer, pantry, bathroom, outside storage, oh my the list goes on......

Andy,
Fully loaded we are 17,220 lbs, if that is what you are asking. That is with water.

Have one of those down the street and never have been in it. Guess I should try it!

Brad - actually was looking for the weight of the satellite system you installed.

Ah - sorry about that. The satellite system was 45 lbs in the box - not too bad. Probably about 30 lbs on the roof.

We have a 17,500 sticker with the 8K.

But it is still mostly in the pin (4300) vs the axles (12,900).
