I hear ya...when we started out we bought enough toilet paper for a community; bought extra dump hose, elbows, etc, a dual propane fitting...that was for a trailer - still have most of it in the shop! Oh, the trailer was bought in the early 80's.....guess I'm a hoarder, or slow to rid the shop of worthless items, ha! Anyway, enjoy that B, we are on our second and it is a treasure to own. Ron

I hope you enjoy your new 59k as much as we do. It took too long for us to make a really good checklist so we remember to perfectly stow all the drawers, fridge, counter top, and stuff on shelves. Our big poodle travels leashed in her bed on the floor by the sliding door, and several mishaps -- all our fault -- understandably frightened her. (Opening fridge, opening kitchen drawer, falling item....). Though she isn't a shrinking violet personality, now we must work with her to overcome hesitancy of travel in the van. I understand why airline flight attendants seem so neurotic pre-takeoff. The care you need to prepare to head out is way more than just hopping in a car, especially if there is something you love back there.

Thanks, that's really helpful! I hope your poodle is becoming ever more comfortable in your coach. We have two little papillons. Both travel well in cars, but we will prepare for them carefully and start with some short overnight trips before we go cross-country!

We took your advice to heart, Saldar. We parked our coach on the driveway, brought our dogs into the coach and let them sniff about. Then we sat with the dogs on the beds and relaxed as usual, watching TV and chatting. The dogs quickly felt at home and claimed their special corners, while we figured out where to feed them, where they would sleep, etc. After a few days of this, we took our first trip: two nights out, 20 minutes from home. We remembered (almost) all of the latches on the storage spaces and refrigerator, and didn't have any loud noises from the load. The dogs were wonderful travelers and adequate campers. They were confident entering and leaving the coach. They love the camping life: lots of long walks, catching bugs by the fire, and feeling "dog tired" at the end of the day! I hope your poodle is doing well and traveling happily!

I'm glad your pups had a first good trip. I hope you did, too!
