RE: Looking for a good place around Pensacola area? Ideas?

The zoo near Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze Zoo, is nice. It is small but fun. The Naval Aviation Museum on NAS Pensacola is great.

RE: Favorite COE park in your state

In the Branson area, any of the COE parks on Table Rock Lake are good. We usually stay at Indian Point, Mill Creek, and Campbell Point. We have also stayed at Bucksaw on Lake Truman near Clinton. We recently stayed at Persimmon Hills on Enid Lake in Mississippi.

RE: Anyone own a Bayhill by Evergreen?

Thank you for the link as well as the information you provided. The unit we purchased does not have the tankless water heater (dodged that problem) and we have requested that they open up the bottom of the unit and check for straps on the tanks. We did read all 48 pages and did notice those were pretty much a repeated problem that it looks like they have corrected, but we don't want a tank falling out,hence the request to check it out. We also have looked at many posts and videos on the schwentec slide problems and it seems that the problems are with all manufacturers who use these types of slides. We do expect to have a few annoying problems but hopefully ones we can correct ourselves and if not a trip to a repair shop will be made. Glad you are having things looked at and the dealer is willing to do it. We really liked ours, but with the problems the dealer wasn't very helpful. They worked on our tank 3 separate times and it was never "fixed" is the main reason we got rid of it. Having a good dealer makes a huge difference. Best of luck to you and happy travels.

RE: class a with a rubber, fiberglas or aluminum roof

What Class As have aluminum roofs? Never seen that. I had an aluminum tonneau cover for my truck and we were in a hail storm. It was trashed, but the truck only had 2 small dents.

RE: Awaiting the 2017's

Newmar makes a great Motorhome. But, when you look at those statistics, it does NOT tell what you think it tells. Sales rose. That is great. BUT if Newmar sold 500 motorhomes last year and then sold 700, then the marketing dept would tout that 40 percent increase. Now if Fleetwood sold 10,000 last year and then sold 10,500, that is a 5 percent increase, but still they sold a LOT more. Newmar does NOT have the market share they had just 10 years ago. They are slowly increasing their share every year, but have NOT sold as many as Tiffin/Winne/Fleetwood and Thor. Remember, Marketing will use the numbers and fudge them to make any RV line look like they are selling more versus the competition. Doug Fortunately, quantity is not their business model. They are geared towards quality and limit how many they make a year. Tiffin is similar, but the rest only care about $$$ and not quality.

RE: Anyone own a Bayhill by Evergreen?

Here's a lot of info for you. 49 pages worth. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f44/evergreen-bay-hill-162477.html We owned one for a year (we posted on the link above). Although very nice on the outside, how it was put together was very lacking. Our main problem was the fresh water holding tank as was others. If you read the IRV2 forum, you will see what I am talking about. Also, if it has the tankless water heater, it can be very frustrating as it is near impossible to get it working properly. Luckily it didn't effect our unit, but their were several instances of slide problems. Hopefully you won't have too many issues, but be prepared for potential problems (as in any new RV).

RE: What to buy in a 40'-45' with tag ?

The Newmar Ventana are also available in a Tag Axle with their coachs that are 40' and above. We are picking up our new Ventana (non tag) this weekend. They are nice as well as Dutch Star you already mentioned.

RE: Garmin 760 RV GPS is a new model on the way?

It looks like the RV 660LMT has replaced it. https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/on-the-road/rv/rv-660lmt/prod524447.html We have the 760 and it has worked well for us. It is still available on Amazon.

RE: New trailer purchase

We had a good buying experience a few years ago when we purchased a Voltage toy hauler from the CW in Strafford Missouri. It did have a lot of issues from the get go, but the service was also very good and they had everything done within a couple of weeks (it was a lot of stuff).

RE: Gem in hiding near Mobile, Alabama

I agree looks too tight. Your neighbors picnic table would be right outside your driver side windows and almost be right under your slides.
