    Love it! After about a year we finally were able to take our "new" 1999 Coleman Santa Fe on a road trip! 750 miles north & we spent a wonderful week in Northern Minnesota. Everything went fairly well for a first trip. We did have a few furnace issues but they seemed to have worked themselves out (we threatened the furnace by buying a little electric heater as a backup). [:D] We did run out of gas on the last night (hey, it got down in the 30's a few nights). Anyway, we are definitely happy campers and ready to get back out as soon as possible. DH even did a few mods (and rewired the brakes) while we were at camp.

    I have a couple of questions about tongue weight, etc. but I'll post those elsewhere.

    Sounds like a wonderful trip! We had a low of 64 this morning. Daytime temps are still in the mid-90's. We would not need a furnace at this time of year. I'm envious of your lower temps. Fall is almost here, but we won't see lows in the 30's until January. [:)C]
