And it is not what I thought it would be!
Last month I declared I wanted a “…Class “C” (or “B+”) … 25’ long with 0 slide-outs …”
I ended up with a Class “A” just under 27’ long with 2 slide-outs.
It’s an Itasca Sunova 26p, 2006, and I think it’s pretty :-> (BTW, Itasca and Winnebago are the same company.)
Some may wonder why I didn’t get a smaller, more agile rig. Well, the smaller RVs I wanted were built on Ford chassis, all of which have the gas pedal too far to the left for my bum right knee. After 20 minutes of driving my knee hurts.
I would have saved a heck of a lot of time if I had test driven earlier in the process, before spending hours scouring the internet and consignment lots for the perfect RV. Lesson learned.
Plus, I like the little extra floor space for the dogs to sprawl. The trip will be more comfortable for all of us.
Now that the decision’s made, I’m really excited about getting the dogs (and myself) acclimated with a couple trial runs before the big Perimeter Trip.
But Do the Dogs Like It?
The dogs had no apparent concern about getting into the RV. Zack jogged right up the steep steps, but Zoe needed a little hiney boost. (I’ll be bringing the ramp just in case.)
They proceeded to sniff out every corner. Zoe then claimed the space under the table as her own while Zack did his guard dog duty at the door.
I haven’t driven them around in it yet, though. First, I’m putting on new tires (cha-ching$$) and a pair of good vent fans (to help keep the dogs cool).
Now the rig needs a name. Got any ideas?
