I have just acquired a 2005 Rialta with only 19000 miles on the clock. It came to the UK via Germany where the original owner had imported it new from the US.
I have had Motorhomes since 1969 so I think I can call myself a 'Veteran Motorhomer'! This is my 11th Motorhome and my 4th American one the last being a 2005 Fourwinds Siesta 24 BB. The double slide outs on that gave a huge amount of floorspace were great but after trying to negotiate some of the very narrow UK roads and on the continent in places that were calling out to be visited, it reluctantly had to go!
I first saw a Winnebago like the Rialta I now have when visiting Interlarken in Switzerland. There were four adults touring in it and they told us, my late husband, daughter and son in law who were in a Dolphin on a Toyota Hi Lux truck, admittedly smaller than the Fourwinds Siesta, that they managed very well in it. We were very impressed with the seating, four comfortable 'Captains' seats and a much more economical engine.
My Rialta came with a safari room which will nearly double the living space. There are now three adults and a 10 year old granddaughter who is nearly as big as me! We have had one weekend away in it in order to try it out including the Safari room that had never been used. My son in law and I used it last weekend to go to visit relatives in Yorkshire a 500 mile (UK mile) trip. The Rialta went like a dream. I drove it some of the trip, couldn't believe how easy it was having relied entirely on son in law to drive the Fourwinds Siesta. Of course we have all got to learn to 'downsize' but will have the benefit of getting to places previously restricted to us in the larger RV.
