Talking Loving It, yes life is grand.

Hello all,
The wife and I are not new to the RV world as we traded in our 2016 Rockwood Ultra Lite 2604 TT on a very slightly used 2017 Chateau 31L. We have had her out twice now and we are loving it. Runs and handles great with no issues we have found.

It only had 3511 miles on it, of which 1019 were transport miles from Indiana to NE Florida. We know it was bought around the time of the hurricanes, and maybe became someone's residence till they could resume a normal life. Whomever, ran the generator a bunch ,as it has 555.7 hour on it (3.3 weeks).

I have done all the servicing on the unit. Oil Change filters, lube, on both engine and generator, so we are starting out fresh. Future plans are a trip from NE Florida to Alaska and back starting in May of 2018 and ending when we get back (3-4 months). We also have some Bluegrass Festivals in January, February, and March in Florida that are working, SOOOO, it should be well broke in before the cruise and any problems will surface and be fixed before the trip of a lifetime. Why yes live IS grand.
