It was 7 years ago but we had an excellent experience. Found what I wanted on line and sent them a $1,000 deposit. A week later we drove 606 miles to Fort Worth to sped a day with an old guy I used to fly with. The next morning we were to MHSRV to meet with Mitch Bennett. We spent most of the day touring other coaches in the $75,000 to $130,000 price range. At the end of the day, we decided to buy the original coach. After a night in the motel adjacent dealership, we arranged for the bank to wire the money to MHSRV. About 2 pm, we moved into our new RV in the delivery barn with a water and electricity. The next day, we drove the car back to Camping World in Fort Worth to buy the food and necessities for the trip back to KY and to arrange for a U-Haul dolly. Meanwhile Mitch arranged for a drop and ball to be installed in the hitch.
We had discovered the coach was still winterized and the electric part of the water heated did not work, so it was fixed while we were shopping. Matt and the delivery tech came by about 3pm to check on us. I asked if we could go to the dump station, so I could check out the waste system. The four of us unhooked and stowed everything and I drove tentatively to the dump station. Matt talked me through the dump procedures and procedure using the tank flush system; while the tech explained where everything was located in the coach as my DW recorded it. A short trip to get the dolly and we went to bed early.

The next day we were off to Mt View, AR and Ozark RV Park. After a week, we arrived back home in KY. The coach has only spent two weeks a an RV dealer's lot to repair a collision with a tree nursery's tractor trailer. Other than that it has been trouble free.

Sorry for yet another question .... So this is those of you with the SV34 floor plan. have you found structural issues with your coach. I don't care if you have a Hemphill Bros coach somedays stuff just happens.. water leaks etc. I cant tell ya how many tour buses in my production days had issues ( only difference was i was the passenger LOL) have ya had structural issues with the coach? The 600 chassis seems to have brought some additional strength to the platform... but above that Literally.

The chassis brought about an increase in OCCC but beyond that the house side construction wasn't affected. In other words, no improvement.
