We looked at so many, I knew I would get confused so I kept a note book with me and tried to make notes as we looked. After looking at a few large gassers, Craig zeroed in on the diesels. The bigger, the better!
There were more that we didn't feel good about than we did.
But the interesting thing is one of the gassers we saw in the beginning, and we went back to before leaving was our favorite. It was a 36' or 37' 2008 Georgetown by Forest River. What we liked about it were some of the floor plan features and cabinetry touches. We both liked the fact that the kitchen had an island. I have looked at many floor plans and have not found a diesel with an island. If fact so far I haven't found any others with an island. If anyone knows of manufacturers of Motorhomes with this feature I'd be glad to hear from you.
I also liked the fact that the potty was on an angle rather than parallel with the wall. This gives you more "elbow" room.
We also both liked a 2010 Meridian V, 39' diesel, by Itasca. It had a forward kitchen and no carpeting between the door and the kitchen. I think of when one is cooking outside, the number of trips you take back and forth, and how bothersome it would be to take your shoes off each time. This of course is something easily changed, but something to think about.
A third rig we liked was a 2004 Georgie Boy, I don't know the manufacturer, but will be looking it up. It was a 38' diesel. We liked the fact that it had a nice desk in the bedroom, and that it had a TV on the side.
Speaking of TVs, Why do they have so many in the big RVs? We saw some with three inside and a forth outside. I guess since I'm not much of a TV watcher, I find it hard to appreciate this wealth of screens!
So overall the show was a good experience. There is no question that we will end up with a BIG diesel. I know what the light in his eyes means when I see it.
Aside from that Craig worked very hard on Sunday on he house repairs.
In answer to the questions about the Moose lodge, I'll post what I find out as I go.
That all for now ...
