Lordy is that a beautiful camper. I'm in envy over your exterior storage and quad battery bank. We're still very happy with our Host Rainier and will be using it this weekend. Good to get a personal report from your factory visit. Host has been exceptional about answering any email questions.


I was originally shocked when you guys traded for the Host. Dave Hogue mentioned at the factory that a Host is to the camper world like the Master Craft is to the boating industry. I returned back to the factory after using the camper for a day for shakedown before leaving Bend.

I mentioned to Dave it was great to spend my first night in a Master Craft.

Wow!

Clicking back and forth thru the pictures I marvel at the amount of space in the "basement". Looking forward to pics of the interior. Thanks again for sharing your "baby" with us.

I really like the way Host worked with you. I'm going to stop in at my Host dealer at the next show.

See you out there,

A lot of small manufacturers do that. Snowriver often did dealer sales in the US & people picked up at the factory in Canada with the manufacturer driving it the 30 min to the border to clear customs. Saves money and if there are issues they can be resolved on site.

I was trying to build a very custom camper. Most dealers sell a variety of RV's and have limited knowledge of the modifications I was requesting.

Bill Penney at East End Campers is the only person I have spoken with who knows campers inside and out . . . every major brand. Unfortunately he was in Long Island and I was nearly 3k miles away. He worked with me and the factory to get this camper built the way I wanted. It was a team effort and after owning 6 campers since the 70's I had a pretty specific demand list. Bill Penny at East End Campers and Dave Hogue at Host gave me a reality check on what could and couldn't be done and really came with some ideas that were very creative.

Some examples; they got the Honda generator installed, built the electrical system to run through the Prosine converter/inverter so that all my outlets could produce inverted power including running the fridge on A/C while driving, allowing me to turn my propane off. They ducted the A/C to the bedroom area and it works great. Installed the Garret "See Level" gauges so I no longer have to worry about sensor fouling and have a much more accurate read on my tanks. Built custom shelves and cabinets throughout. Overall they worked as a team to really make a great camper.

Mooney,
I saw you and the new camper when you were heading south on hwy 97 just north of Klamath Falls. I was on my way home, I live in Chiloquin. Nice set-up, it really stands out going down the road!
