When my wife and I met Phil at the Hershey, PA, RV Show, we said, “The beautiful interior shows the work of skilled, conscientious craftsmen. Now, tell me about what we can’t see.” He proudly explained the construction of the frame, walls, and roof and the efficient placement of plumbing fixtures and electrical wiring. We were pleased that he went into detail about these important safety features.
Our trip to the factory confirmed the attention to detail that the New Horizon team showed and demonstrated your company’s philosophy.
Since we were new to RVing and planned to go full-time, we were concerned about driving a 38’ fifth wheel without previous experience. Phil related his own experience of driving that size RV with little previous experience and mentioned that we would have all the training we needed from Mike Eenhuis.
After Mike’s instruction on hitching and un-hitching and the operation of the electrical and plumbing systems, Kate and I had the opportunity to drive around the state highways and interstates around Junction City. We quickly adapted to pulling the fifth wheel.
As we headed to the East Coast, Kate and I felt very comfortable after we had each driven our first 100 miles. By now, we each have about 1000 miles of towing the fifth wheel. The towing is very smooth with no sway or weaving; the truck and RV feel like one vehicle, and we feel very secure.
Two final words about the interior—beautiful and spacious. The craftsmanship is evident in every element of the warm cabinets, every hinge, and every window installation. The floor plan provides a spacious feeling and the arrangement of the shelves and cabinets provides plenty of room. After six weeks on the road, we still have empty cabinets and basement space available. Our three cats have established spaces for themselves, so they do not feel crowded either.
We are eagerly looking forward to the next 3-6 years on the road. Thank you, Phil, Karen, Erin, Marianne, and especially thank you to the construction team.
