Yea, John has me by one, but he's actually upgraded from 22 to 25 to 28....me I love the 25' floorplan and have only gone from 19 to 25 and (maybe) another 25.

Glad to hear that someone else has the mechanical bug as I do. It's a blessing and a curse, but I tend to like to think of it as a blessing.

Enjoy your new coach....she is no doubt a beaut and one that years from now, folks will say, hey look, there are one of those FB units with the non-suicide door and with the front and back panoramic windows........

Traded our 05 16' Bambi CCD for 06 22' CCD

Took delivery of our 06 22' CCD. Has all the options. We were brave and hitched-up at the dealer in Albuquerque and embarked on our vacation. So far we have been gone for 3 weeks. Here are the problems we've encountered.

- Shower leaks. Runs out water onto the ground. I have caulked it. Still leaks.
- Outside porch lamp bulb burned out.

Other than that. Everything else is fine. The fit and finish is of much higher quality than our 05 CCD. We'll be heading home in a couple of days. (That's what we said last week!)

Pieman trades again!!!!!

You won't believe this but we did it again!!! After having loads of problems with our 04 Bambi 16/CCD we had traded for our 25' Classic. It was and is nearly letter perfect. You would think after this we would be satisfied and not press our luck BUT!!!!!!! Friday we ordered a 30" Classic and making another trade. A summer without a dinnette was our reason< you gotta have one>. If this one is anywhere near as good as this last one we will be happy. If this thread is still going when we take delivery we'll post the results. ------- Pieman

Pieman,

At this rate, you should be buying the 64 foot model by 2007. Let me know what you will be using for a TV.

At least for the time being we will use our Nissan Titan. Obviously I will have to be cautious about total weight . Based on how the Titan pulls the 25' Classic I have no doubt it will handle it. I know this will bring a response from Silvertwinkie. He always jumps at the opportunity to trash Titans but that's ok.----Pieman

I too went from a 25' to the 30' and it is so sweet! I love the dinette and always eat at the table. Also serves as much needed counter space. Love this floorplan. Congrats.

Mike, Mike, Mike -- Eric 'Silvertwinkie' has had a bit of fun at the expense of the American-made Titan. He has demurred when I have provided more factual (but critical) comments. You are correct to be aware of need to move up on TV (as will I..). Anything but the most basic equipped King Cab version has very limited ability to carry a 25-footer's tongue weight.

Fuhged-about-it as far as re-gifting that travelling fruitcake to relations during your Airstream adventures -- as long as you have the Titan that is...

I agree, the dinette is a must have (at least for some). I don't think I could have an RV without one. It's just such a functional part of the RV.

We tried to go without (when we bought the '01 Safari), but after having two previous SOB's with one, we knew that our next A/S would have one. It became one of the major reasons for upgrading.

I was going to leave well enough alone with this one, until I read this on CNN today.... just thought that I'd share it... keep in mind, it's not me that wrote this and I am not connected to it in any way whatsoever:

http://www.cnn.com/2005/AUTOS/10/26/...ble/index.html

Feel free to draw your own conclusions particularly when looking at how the big 3 stacked up in the consumer rated comparision when you go to the bottom once you click on the Titan or Armada.

Off topic, I also go a big kick out of those Mitsubishi commercials I saw during the World Series with the Titan loosing fluid....not that I thought the Mitsubishi was actually all that fierce either.

Ah, Eric, we hardly knew ye... *

Probably as the original Titan owner on ASForums (mid-December '03) I have had minimal problems. There is the disk brake "judder" problem -- seems like a disk warping issue but I'm not sure. I have never seen this. There is a semi-recall as it applies to Titans with this problem. They've only extended the warranty on the brake system. I'm not a jackrabbit driver so maybe haven't put enough aggression into my brake pedals. As a long-time CR subscriber (and auto survey responder) I can say that one significant anomaly like this can sway the overall rating for quite some time to come.

The Titan's ride isn't as soft as the very good Tundra (thank you Barking Spider for your feedback on that TV!) but is a lot more pleasing than most anything else out there. What do you have to step up to to get a 'Big 3' offering with side airbags? (I'm shopping here -- the Titan is not really up to pulling my 25'11" Safari)

Yah Eric, wouldn't you dampen your nest if you saw a .... did you say Mitsubishi? Now I am amused....

*Okay, stolen from the post-JFK themed "Johnny, We hardly knew ye."

Don't know about the pickups, but my '04 Burb has side Airbags....but I'll warn ya, if the Titan got bad mileage, the Burb may make it look like a Hybrid.

I have seen 13mpg towing our Safari loaded, and as the truck ages a bit, it now has 5000 miles on it, I am getting 12 city, up from 10 city....at $2.70/gal, I'll take all I can.

As for Dodge and Ford, well, all I can say is that it's like Vincent said in Pulp Fiction when he was talking about Royal with cheese and the metric system when asked what about Burger King's burgers, Vince simply says, "I don't know, I didn't go to Burger King".

...and by all means, that Mitusbishi would make me dampen my nest...epecially after I towed a tri-axle Airstream with it.

Thumbs up Titan pulling 25 Classic update

Just thought I would update my Titan Experience.
6000 miles in 4 months including one trip to Rocky Mountain NP 12K level.
Canyon Lands and Arches in 114 degree weather with climbs to 8.5K level.
And two lessor pulls in the Great Smokies .
Getting 11mpg running at 65mph.
Engine RPM at 65mph is 1900rpm in 4th gear pretty impressive.
Stable, good acceleration, quite.
My biggest concern that when its time to get a new Truck they won't be making this model in the color that I like.
