620verlander,

While I am admittedly NOT the most industrious person in the world, I don't think I conform to the "lazy" in Lazy Boy. Five fused vertebrae and Harrington rods in my lower back, make the recliner a favorite spot. Many chairs and couches simply aren't comfortable for more than a few minutes.

From the mouths of babes......must be the German hertiage???

Oh, young Frank, still of spunky vigor.
After your 62' has received it's last floor tile and coat of polish, and you are able to take a day of rest with hopefully all digits still attached, then you can recline to your lawn chair to look upon the work completed.

NOW get back to work! like they say, no rest for the wicked!
Signed, resting Safarian

For those who've read a number of my posts over the past several years, you'll know my entire Airstream ownership experience was very trying -
hopefully, we'll get back on track with Newmar to where we can actually enjoy owning an RV.

Incidentally, although I used the word "lazy boy" I didn't mean to imply that anyone enjoying such a chair is lazy. Many of my "camping" days, for example begin before 6:00am, and I can be rowing my boat and fishing on the Yellowstone River until "dark-thirty". When I return to my trailer it is often close to 10:00pm. A "lazy boy" chair would sure feel good to sit it then for awhile before going to bed.

John,

Sorry to lose a 'Streamer, but you will be most pleased with Newmar as a company. Their waranty service is excellent.......really one of the best in the industry!

I do a lot of waranty work for Newmar, and they have always been a pleasure to deal with from my end and they have many, many very happy customers as well.

Doesy your Kountry Air have the tandem 'dually' axles? Very nice set-up but boy, are they heavy!!!!!! I can see why you're going with the F-450!!!

"Newmar Kountry Aire"

Maybe I need therapy, but I'd have a really hard time buying something that big where the manufacturer felt he needed to misspell the name to get attention.

I'm sure it's very nice, though, and we certainly wish you many happy travels.
