    Back in July, I picked up a previously loved 1995 Viking 270SD. That's right, it's the big, tandem axle one.

    I've had to replace two lift cables in it, and I've only had it out a few times but I'm definitely not sorry I bought it!

    I bought a Viking in 1967 which I believe was the first year they were made. It was a dem that a local dealer bought. I kept it for about 20 years. I bought a 2007 Epic 2106ST. and I have been happy with it. It was stored for about 2 years and I got it out to clean and get it ready to use once more. However when I raised it up I have problems lowering it.

    We just brought home a 2004 Viking Epic 2308!

    I looked it over it but I can't wait to pop it up and really check it out tomorrow now that it's mine. I love the layout. Does anyone have this model and know the size of the bunk end beds? I am guessing Full & Queen.

    Just bought a new 2017 Viking 1906STSS. I made a quick stop at a state park for an overnighter on the way home. I think I am really going to like it. A/C, Furnace, electric brakes, awning and the front storage box.

    Bought a gently used 2006 Viking Epic 2107 last Friday. Prepping for it's maiden voyage this weekend to Cades Cove in the Smokies. Will be dry camping as there are no hook-ups in Cades Cove. Just gotta get my interior lights working. For some reason they don't want to come on even with a brand new hot marine grade battery...........

    I purchased the 1995 Viking 175SD XL this past August. It's small with only a 9' roughly, box and 2 pull outs on the sides that are maybe double size only. But for me and my small dog it is fine.
    Needs lots of cosmetic repairs and a couple of major ones, to make it restored. :(

    We just purchased a 1998 Viking Epic 1706 - clean up and renovation plans are in the works as soon as it warms up enough to lay new flooring, paint, fabrics, etc! If anyone has an owners manual they'd be willing to copy, I'd sure appreciate it.

    Just bought a 2010 1706. The sink flip over box was not part of ours and we’re thinking of adding it. Does anyone have any experience with this? All the pipes/plumbing is in place we just need the cabinet.

    Hi All,
    My wife and I are new to the portal here, and were bought our excellent condition 2005 Legend 2465ST late summer 2016. Have loved the unit with not enough camping yet, but are looking forward to more this summer. One problem with our unit, and looking for any feedback we can get. Our roof lift system is the IDT series, and has been extremely labor intensive heavy handed to raise/lower. We went out a couple of weeks ago, and right at the lower point of our take down my main crank free spun. I have done tons of research on this IDT system with all of its problems. Looking for anyone who might own similar unit, have any feedback, and if they have possibly heard of a power lift option out there. We love the PUP but have to work on this now to make our experiences better. Oh yeah, when we looked at the unit at the dealer roof system was up, and when we went to pick up unit was all buttoned up, so this apparent drawback wasn't realized till we had ownership.

    I have a 2005 clipper 1280st, that has the lift system removed because something broke. Any idea where to get lift parts

    we just bought a 2005 Viking legend 2470st with the IDT lift system and there is a step by step description how to take apart and repair on the forum titled 'Viking/idt lift system from 9.2.14. It apparently is pretty easy, however I haven't done it... Good luck w/ fixing it. Would be interested in hearing how it went as well.
