Hello All!

Greetings! Just signed up since we now own a 2019 Aria 4000! Ample room for 2 adults, our Bernese Mountain Dog, our Newfoundland, and 2 Tortoise-shell cats! We hope to go full-time in a couple of years and wanted a large coach with a diesel pusher, 2 full baths and plenty of towing capacity. As with all motor homes we are addressing some teething issues, so we believe this Forum will be a valuable source of information and support!


Looking forward to the journey (and we registered as "The Boxcar Children" because it's a favorite children's book along with the Aria seeming to be as big as a boxcar)!
GVP

Good luck we have two standard poodles, and two black cats that we plan to drag around with us.
We don’t know how much we don’t know yet.

Thanks! Put the dining table down into a bed and they'll have room to jockey for position!

Thanks! Our Torties stay in the back, either on the low bunk looking out the window, or in the king bed. We put one litter box in the aisle by the mid-bath door with the other on the mid-bath floor.


Your dogs, if like ours, will fight for space between the seats; however with poodles there may be ample space!

So far we have not left the driveway yet. My wife enjoyed the shopping, and is still shopping for accessories. I think we are somewhat anxious about our first trip.

I don't think there is any middle ground when it comes to RVs-most either love them or hate them! One nice thing about a MH is that as soon as you get into it, it feels like you are on vacation. We love ours especially once the bugs are worked out. The Aria 4000 is our 3rd and last MH, and we don't fly so a big RV is our preferred way of seeing the Country! Our dogs go nuts when they see me pulling it out of storage!



Since you're in beautiful BC Canada you have the best of all based on your location. You can go south to the USA lower 48, Northwest to Alaska, or stay close and hit Banff, Kootenay, etc.



We vacationed in Banff and Kootenay 10 years ago to include an outdoor concert in Edmonton (Bon Jovi)-absolutely loved it!

Congrats on the new Aria and welcome to the forum. You will have a full house before you even pack! I just loaded all the dog accessories today and was thinking they need to get their own rig and we could just tow them.

That's why we never had kids! (But that's how we treat our pets!)
