OK I will try that.
Our Crescendo is an 8356. I just can't believe the lack of storage compared to our fifth wheel we traded in. I have no pantry. They bays outside are small too. Sitting here wondering if we made a huge mistake.

The actual label is "Log me on automatically each visit:" It keeps you signed on for the current session, not forever.

Carol, I'll bet you have the double-door fridge. We opted for the smaller, single-door fridge. A great, pull-out pantry is installed in the unused space.

Similarly, not having a washer/dryer installed gained us room for bulky items (blankets, MH documentation, computer equipment, etc).

Being a jeans & tee-shirt family, we have very few hanging cloths. So I filled the closet with pull-out, stackable drawers (Sterilite) from Wal-Mart.

Depending on your toad, you can store a lot in it while traveling.

Hey Carol,

I had the same problem with storage. After trading in my 1990

40' Winnebago SuperChief, for a 32.5 SunVoyager, But the trade off for 2

slides and 6" in width makes the living area well worth it. I found

"STUFF" I forgot I had. We added a 14' screen room under the

awning and that works very well and the dogs love it !!

Best Regards and Happy Travlin' !! Clyde

We had the same thoughts when we traded our 5er which was 36' triple axle, triple slide, in on our first Gulf Stream motorhome which was a 2002 35' Yellowstone DP that we purchased in August 2002. We had more storage inside and outside in the 5er than we did the motorhome.

So after two years in August 2004 we purchased our present 40' Gulf Stream with 4 slides and bunches more storage.
Of course, this was the floorplan that the wife wanted in the beginning and I didn't because of the 40' length driving.

Guess I should have listened to her from the beginning and it would have saved us some $$$$.

Darn, I hate it when she is right, again!!!

I was thinking the other night about a screen room. But we have some real neat lights that slide in that little groove on the awning. Is there another type of screen room?
Chuck put a shelf in that big space where the washer and dryer is suppose to go. I didn't want a washer and dryer. I needed the space with animals traveling too.
We took the model off the lot. It has the free standing dinette. Only came with 2 chairs so I guess they don't think we will have company .
One thing I have found that's different than all the other motor homes we've had (too many) is that walking to the ref. is very difficult. This thing has a lot more sway to it. The wider walking area doesn't help. I have no place to brace myself quickly. That's a good thing too. Plenty of room when the slides are in. So I guess I shouldn't complain.

Now if diesel would just go down.

Hey Carol, once in awhile, if the insects are "BUGGIN"' you, (sorry
about that). You'll trade those lites (Which attract BUGS) for the
comfort of a screenroom.

Best Regards, Clyde

Every year the buggies seem to be getting worse and bigger. The screen room just might be the answer. I have two cats that travel with us and I am sure they would enjoy being out a little bit.
Since we've never bought a screen room before, what types are their out there?

Carol

Chuck can hang his lights a different way

Default Crescendo DVD

Hey, did any of you guy's get a DVD with your coach that had somewhat of a presentation of all of the units features. The one I got stopped playing 1/2 way thu.... I contacted GS about getting a new one which I received. It had the same problem so I contacted GS again and suggested they purge their stock of the bad ones. I had two people contact me indicating they would check the stock and get back to me. Guess what... have not heard from GS for about three weeks and now both people appearently are no longer working for GS

I'm sure you would enjoy this story... such a simple thing but indicates the quality of the product all the way down to the DVD
