I'm Here!
« on: October 13, 2019, 10:26 AM »

So, I've always wanted an RV. buying a new one was not an option. Instead of waiting all my life to never get one. I jumped right in and bought an Dodge Champion Motorhome. picking it up in Kentucky and Driving it 4 hours home to Chattanooga I had a long drive of Buyers Remorse... WHAT Did I do!!!!! But instantly my 8 year old made me feel so much better. He has the same enthusiasm about the vehicle as I do. the other 3 children and loving it more and more. So, Father of the year???? Maybe. But I got to get it on the road.  :)clap

Based on pics. what forum posts should I check out.

Totally awesome RV!  Buyer's remorse?
As common as, " where's the master cylinder on this thing?"  Lol!
It'll grow on you really quick.

I was wondering where that VIN tag was located on the thing..Looks like the rivets were drilled out..I found my VIN on the front right frame rail but is hardly readable..Be nice to see a label such as the one you are showing..
