DW and I closed the deal on a 2009 Newmar Canyon Star 3205! We pick it up on Saturday. It's our first motorhome. It was my first drive too. DW didn't drive it though. Acceleration was surprisingly good and we thought the ride was just fine. The test drive was about 30 minutes on city streets where I could easily get up to 50 mph. Plenty of dips and bumps. We'll see over the long haul but it's more than acceptable for now.

EDIT: Updated the pics.

I'm sure you will love it! MHs make RVing a completely dfferent experience. As a friend once said "your vacation begins the minute you start the engine - you don't have to wait until you get there!"

Thanks very much everyone! It's really nice and the quality is apparent. We're pretty excited and have our first trip planned in it next week.
