Seen your friend request and I think I added you as a friend. Not really sure how all the buttons on this site work yet. I appreciate all the encouragement you have offered. Since we live somewhat close, maybe some day we will meet up on the road somewhere. We surely will be checking out some of the campgrounds you have stayed in the area.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them. When you have read the posts in the forums you may find your questions answered.

1 last thing, you have probably seen the thread on the 2016 chassis having a 6 speed tranny. That is a huge upgrade. Our 2015 Bertha had a 2014 chassis and 2013 tires. It's the little details that make a difference.
Read these 3 posts in reverse order. That may make some difference....:LOL
These threads only allow 1000 characters per post and I am way to wordy to fit in to 1 post what I have to say............again LOL
I'll be happy to give you some help on the "driving a bigger rig".

We know how excited you are about receiving your 31 UL and rightfully so.
Are you experienced RVers? Have you had motorized RVs before? Do you know what the PDI (Pre-delivery Inspection)is? Are you buying from a dealer you have a history with? Do you have experience driving a large vehicle?
The reason I ask is there is a tremendous amount of education that goes along with one of these things. The Precept forums have been a tremendous boost to our knowledge and the exchanges have expanded our horizons. A few Precept owners met at the Jayco Rally in IA last August. We had met on the forum and had a blast getting to know each other in person. It's really a very kool way of meeting people from all walks of life and experiences.......all of us have a common goal: relax, enjoy this wonderful USA by RV, eat delicious CG prepped meals and meet the most interesting people.
Good morning Rick and Karen. Yep, we know exactly where Troy is. We live in Kansas City, MO north. That is north of the MO river. We are actually just 5 miles west of Liberty, MO.....see I-35 north out of KC MO.
We have had "Bertha" since June, 2014. She was the 2nd 31UL off the line for 2015 and Jayco has made some improvements/upgrades since we purchased.
Our camping experiences have broadened out since we bought Bertha. We now camp in state parks, county parks and will be in national parks. Corp of Engineer parks have been a wonderful find for us, although they have been there all this time. The 32' length of Bertha and the comfortable maneuverabitlity of her, gives us the opportunity to "fit" in where we couldn't with our 5er.
We started RVing in 2005 with a 31' TT, 2011 moved into a 5th wheel toy hauler and now Bertha.
This is Rick of Rick and Karen (doylera1). We were just looking at your photo album and noticed you camped at a lot of sites in Missouri. Are you from this area or do you just spend a lot of time here? We live in Troy, IL which is about 18 miles northeast of St. Louis. We have a 31UL on order and are really looking forward to getting it. Looks like you have been to a lot of nice places. Maybe we will see each other on the road someday.
