Yes, the ride with the longer wheelbase is better. I know the turning radius is longer but havent really noticed it. Tows great. We have a Chevy HHR and dont really notice it except when hitting a bump maybe. We have a Brake Buddy to assist in braking, although it rarely comes on with careful driving. Saved our bacon once though: at a Flying J, a four-wheeler came barreling between RVs in the RV parking area; panic stop!

Just got back from a trip to Washington, D.C. Everything went great. Handled the mountains of WV just fine.  Planning a 32 day trip on the Great River Road this fall, Bemidji, MN to New Orleans. Then next spring, 41 days: Pensacola, FL around the Gulf to Key West, up the east coast through St. Augustine, Savannah, Charleston, Ashville ending in Stone Mountain, GA. And then next fall, a 49 day Canadian Maritimes trip: New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador.  We love these caravans, and I know we have some envious people traveling with us in their big Class As and triple axel 5th wheels. Grin  It'd be cool to have another PC along.

ragoodsp, we have a 3100.  Best floor plan for us after having a 2900. Love the combo sofa and dinette, only one slide, the wall of cabinets behind the passenger seat, room for a recliner, and the extra outside storage compartment under the slide (we keep electric and water hookups there for easy hook up). Youll love it.

That looks great.  Heres another idea.  I had shelves added above the beds during construction.  Very handy for glasses, remote, etc.  (Also had reading lights installed pic).  Then added a big-number digital clock at the foot of the passenger side bed with Velcro, running the cord through the TV wire access to the plug in the shirt closet.  My wife and I both like a quick look at the time during the night.

Here in southwestern Ohio, we had a wind storm about three years ago, 70 mph winds, which had power out for five days over a wide region.  We were the only ones on our block with lights, TV and a working refrigerator.  Just ran an extension cord from the PC and ran the generator a few hours each day, alternating what was plugged into it.

Incidentally, the storm also caused the magnetic corners of the vinyl windshield cover to flap, damaging the paint.  Have never have used that type of cover again.

Also, the 2010 air mattress sofa/bed has a large drawer under it that we find very useful.  We too have the large drawer under our sofa in our 2011 Model 3100. We only have occasional guests but they think the air mattress is good.  Sure wouldn't want to do without the drawer (pic).  Its great for storing the computer, printer, and longer items without having to accessing the storage under the drivers side twin bed. It holds a lot of stuff.

We have the ladder and wouldnt want to be without it. Sometimes staying weeks at a time, it makes for easy cleaning of the roof. The jacks are great.  Not only do they level, but they make it stable very little movement of the coach when moving around inside or when someone enters or leaves via the step.  We have not encountered a problem with antenna.  Never noticed any noise from it when traveling, get good reception, and a great HD picture.  Also, the home theater system is great for volume when the AC is on or in heavy rain when the TV volume is not enough.

And recommend the insulated windows: no sweating (accept the windshield), warmer, quieter.  The only option I might reconsider is getting the swivel drivers seat rather than the power seat, although I do like to raise it as high as it will go when travelling.  The very best decision was no carpet.  The second best was a light over the bathroom sink (pic).  Its pretty much the only light we use in the bathroom.

A solution that has been posted by someone else: I always type my posts/replies in a word processor first then copy and paste.  If its lost trying to post, youve still got the message and its easy to repost. Plus it checks my spelling and typing which desperately need!

Ron, appreciate the explanation, but for whatever reason, I couldn't get it to work when trying to edit an existing post. Printed it and will try on a new post later.

Sorry to get off topic again, but Ron, how do you add a hyperlink to a word or group of words?  I manage four websites, but for the life of me, can't make it work here on this forum.  Thanks.   Help

As for the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the official website says peak blossoms are expected to be March 2431 this year.  So we expect there not to be blossom one when we get there. sad Were going to the Adventure Caravans 11 Day Spring Mega Rally - Washington DC: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=11RYRUWA2012990.  Weve been to two other Adventure Caravans events and have really been impressed.  Everything is absolutely first class. Talking to folks at the events, they fall all over themselves talking up the other events theyve been to.  You end up doing many things you would have never done on your own, often would have never considered doing or would even know to do.  One person had been to nearly 30 rallies and caravans!  One guy came to visit our PC three times; swore he was headed to Elkhart to visit the factory.  Dont know if he ever did.

But even if we miss the cherry blossoms, we are still anxious to see D.C. again, a place that you cant really see too often.  If you havent been there, go!!  Every American should absolutely see it at least once.

We are also going in the 32 Day Great River Road & Fall Colors Caravan: http://www.adventurecaravans.com/usa/avc_usa_tours.asp?TCC=32USMIS2012977.  It starts in Bemidji, MN where you can step across the Mississippi River and then follows the Mighty Mississippi all the way the other end in New Orleans.  It would be fun to have another PC in the group

Were headed home from Florida to Ohio.  Delayed leaving a day due to the weather, but still had some tense moments yesterday in central Georgia.  Youre right about having NOAA weather channels on the CB.  Constant updates as you drive.  And like you, a second weather radio when setup.  Have to winterize today. Cry  But leaving for the National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. in April.  Smile

Billy, thanks for the pics. I saved them.

Yes, it would make a good space for that. Im going to make you guys jealous though: my wife hates to shop. As for not seeing the outlet before now, she suggested it was because of my 68 year-old eyes. But Im sure that isn't it.  Grin

Well, Kevin, youre right. I had to pull harder that I was initially willing to pull. A Helpful vote for your Helpful Rating. But its only about six inches deep, and even carpeted!  Considering the effort to get it out and back in place, I would only want to put something there that I would not expect to need very often. But that left a lot of space under that, so what could it be? When I showed by very smart wife, she said she knew what it was. So, I said, what? After her answer, I said, Duh.  Her answer: the mechanics for the slide.  shrug
