Bringing our baby home!

We are on a 1400 mile round trip from Huntsville, AL to Dallas to get our 34' 2004 Classic. It has been BUMPY! The roads in Arkansas were sooo bumpy and the air conditioner stopped working in the coach last night in 100 degree TX heat...but we got her working again. My husband is really white knuckled at the moment with all the bumping and kids car sick from it!

She seems to be in really good shape though....accept for the huge ant nest we found and the fridge that seems to not work, but the freezer does...go figure.

Welcome and way to go on the new Motel! That sure is a long one. Enjoy it whenever you can. Looks like the kids will like it as well. With that size the kids can have their pick of sleeping arrangements.

Some hot days do make beautiful pic's though. I hope you get her home safe.

I don't know what all the bounce is about. The Hensley should take care of the sway. Do you have it loaded? ie Water tank full? That may calm it down some.

Yeah,she's empty and that could be part of the problem. Arkansas I -30 had major bumps coming into Little Rock...pot holes too. We are in MS now and it is much smoother.

We are getting 13 mpg is that in the normal range?

We sure got some rough roads out there, sometimes slowing down a little helps (or speeding up) just to get out of any hermonics caused by the road joints common on concrete highways helps "smooth" out the ride...
