Well, i finally got my 3600RL last thursday. Spent about 5 hours at the dealership with the tech person (very knowledgable person) and about 10 min with the sales manager (long story not worth going into). I was amazed with the 3600RL. It only had a few minor problems (forgot my second a/c, table hits on kitchen island with doorslide in, one set of kitchen cabinet doors to tight to close together and a broken light switch plate). Left on friday to take it on the maiden voyage. Towed like a princess and even was getting better gas mileage than with my previous 5er. Got to the RV park at the Paragon casino and the temporary license plate (La.) must have been a I AM NEW giveaway. Park was packed and we were the only Bighorn in the place. Everybody around wanted a tour and many were surprised with the corian counter tops. (Being me, i am not into the countertops but more into the storage). Everyone that walked by wanted to see inside so we met a lot of people and got to see Trace Atkins in concert at the casino for free. someone that we met had tickets and couldnt go, so they gave the tickets to me and my 13 yr son. He had a great time and i got to see some good sights. Weekend was great, only found a few other minor issues: kitchen sink doesnt have much water pressure compared to shower and bath sink, marks on rear wall from the Euro chairs and the door side wheel skirt cracked. THE AIR BED IS VERY COMFORTABLE and worked as advertised.
Sorry so long but had such an enjoyabel time in my new fiver cant quit talking about it. :) :D :D :D :D :D :D

Hey LSPTpr!

My bride and I live in Lafayette now and are moving to Monroe later this year when she retires. We're heading up to Knoxville next week to pick up our new 3055. If you ever head our way, give us a hollar and we'll hook up for coffee.

We've stayed at the Paragon casino in our old Class C and hope to again in the Bighorn. Nice park! (Especially the shuttles that will take you directly to the casino from your trailer!)

Enjoy that 3600!

Denny and Teri

Yea, those shuttles are johnny on the spot. Dont get up north much. I live in Marrero across the river from New Orleans. We go to the Paragon about 1 every 6 months just to get away. She gambles and i sit on the patio enjoying a few brews and talking to people. I think you will like your 5er very much, I had a Keystone Laredo that i traded in and i have to say the Bighorn seems to be a much better unit on its maiden voyage. We are going to Gulf Shores last weekend of April, Florabama is open again. Gotta try it out.:D :D

You will enjoy the FloraBama and hope that is the weekend that they have the Mullet trow. Lots of fun and lots of people that are having a great time. You going to stay at the AL State Park? Almost on the beach and Gulf Shores, Al sure has made some great changes over the year.
If you get into Pensacola make sure you go to McGuires and have a local brew pup makes great beer.

It will come to you after some forum experience. I always seem to come up with smart @@@ remarks, but I am harmless. None

I'll bet your Princess is actually a Queen in disguise, just ask her. :D
