Shakedown cruise

Got to drive my 300LE up to Point Reyes CA on Saturday evening and do an overnight with my wife and friends. Driving some really and steep back roads was no problem...ran cool up the hills and brakes worked great going down. 65 on the highway steering with one finger if you want, and everything from heat to fridge is working well. We got smiles and waves from almost everyone we passed, and had to give tours and answer questions every time we stopped...what a pleasure!

Thanks! I loved my old 79 28' Excella, but this one is really sweet. I love the rear walk-around queen bed...

Beautiful coach, perfect size...
