So I went to see the SunCruiser today and test drive it. I looked at this rig about 6 weeks ago and it was inside a showroom. This time it was outside. I inspected the outside and liked everything other than the rear tires need to be replaced. The front are from 2010. Great so far...
Then I went inside and immediately noticed the passenger side laptop shelf in the dashboard had a puddle on it. The floor under the dash was pretty wet too. At first it seemed like it was just the right side was wet but I also found the drivers side fixed window frame was also full of water and the speaker next to it was a bit rusty. Bummer, as I liked this layout. I want to buy a home, not a rain forest.
On the positive side, I did get to drive it on back roads and get a feel for driving a big class A on little back roads with hazards. At first I felt overwhelmed at the size of this thing. I had to do a three point turn to get it out of the lot. After a few miles we pulled into a large empty parking lot and I had lots of time to do turns and backing up etc. I felt much better and more confident, not to mention I didn't "take out" a single mailbox or pedestrian (at least not in the parking lot)!
After the test drive I did get to hang out in the rig alone and pretend to run through my daily routines and figure out where I would put all my stuff. This floor plan and size would work very well for me. The rig driving classes sound like a wonderful idea to me. Have any of the forum members taken RV driving lessons? If so, where?
So the search continues. I'm going to contact Sharon at LazyDays and also a few of the other forum members that are selling their rigs.
P.S. Is there a listing of all the typical abbreviations everyone uses on the forum? I feel like I need a decoder ring at times
