Talking New to the Forum

Glad to be able share ideas and stories with the forum. We're new to the Dutchmen brand with our 2014 Voltage 3600 and have certainly had our share of struggles

Hopefully those will soon be behind us. Our goal is to get in some serious practice for retirement over the next few years - traveling the west with our 5th Wheel (and ATVs when we can) to explore some new country. Makes more sense to be mobile than stuck in one spot as we look forward to retirement - gotta see some new country

Hello Folks. We just sold our Rockwood and will purchase either the Voltage 3990 or 3950. I know that the 3990 has the King Bed and the 3950 has the Queen. It seems that the 3950 allows for more sleeping because you can make out the living room couch into a queen; is that correct?

Looking for comments on which way to go and why.

We looked at the Voltage Epic 3800, 3818, 3950 and 3990.

We decided the queen bed that you could walk around would be fine.

In the living area, we chose the 3800 because:

It has two recliners and a dinette. The dinette is my computer table and I can see the television.

The only slide in the living area is the side with the recliners and dinette.

I don't like the kitchen as a slide, restricts kitchen space, and I don't like a slide with propane connections. Just my choice.

Once we get set up, and have the UTV out of the garage...we pin the top "happy jack" bed at the top, set up the table. Then we have a place to eat meals, and have a television there...hooked up to DirecTV...and using the WiFi Ranger our printer sits on the table all the way at the back of the trailer.

There's just the two of us now, and it works out very well for us!

Just thoughts
