Good Bye

To all of the Denali 5th Wheel owners that have provided answers over the past six years, we are moving on. February 2013 we took possession of our 2013 Denali 286RLX. For the most part it was a fabulous unit (once the Lippert slide issue was worked out). Tomorrow morning it is being traded for 2019 Vanleigh Vilano 320GK. So looking forward to brightness and a much better flow. There are some features being left behind but I think the adjustment will be easy. Best of luck to everyone and thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Congratulations on your new RV! We'll miss you. Did you purchase at the show here in Tampa last week?

Yes we did. We knew our next rig was going to be a VL, but the time line was set for the end of the year. However, the deal we made was too good to pass up! Sometimes you just have to walk through the door when it opens. I know a lot of owners that are very happy with the service and quality of VL. Are they perfect? No, but at least their service center is in AL rather than IN, just a long day drive from our home in FL.

Yes, the Beacons are very nice as are the Vilanos. Main difference is the Beacon has full body paint and 8,000 axles. For the deal we got on the Vilanos we're way under the cost of the Beacon. Our new Vilano 320GK was brought home yesterday. It's nice being in a bright interior versus the dark, dark tones of our previous 2013 Denali 286RLX. Even though the VL is 3' longer, the bathroom in the Denali is larger. We made some great memories but look forward to making great memories in the Vanleigh. Happy travels!
