Default New to us Reyo

My first post here (didn't find an introductory section).

We just purchased a 2011 Itasca Reyo 25Q, I guess you can say that we downsized and upgraded since we traded in a 2006 Winnebago Sightseer 30Q. The Reyo has only 14K miles, still looks new and came with every available factory option offered in 2011.

My first impressions are great. The fit & finish and interior materials are far superior to the Sightseer. What I like the most is the drivability and fuel mileage. No more wandering all over the place, a truly stress free driving experience. Driving to the dealer with the Sightseer I got 7 MPGs (GM 8100), going home I got almost 15 MPGs in the Reyo. It is amazing how well the MB 3.0L pulls most hills without downshifting! The brakes are although a huge improvement and inspire confidence compared to the "mushy" Workhorse P32 setup; not to mention I now have a "P" position and a real parking brake which holds in my driveway (9 degree incline).

My wife also loves the quality and classy looks inside and out as well as the smaller footprint. Everything is accessible and usable with both slides retracted, including the rear queen bed; that was one of the must haves for us. I guess if there is something I miss from the Sightseer it would be the bigger shower with the glass door.

Overall we are very happy with our purchase, the price we paid and the dealer we bought it from (Reliable RV in Springfield, MO).

Nice unit

We have a 2010 Reyo and find it to be a great size.
I'm with you on the fuel economy ! Certain stretches of highway around here we have achieved 17.5 mpg
Nice to roll in and fuel up for around $75

Have fun

Thanks for the welcome and the compliment.

Obviously as Reyo newbie I have some questions, maybe you can help.

1. How do you turn the light on inside the wardrobe next to the kitchenette?

2. Is it possible to play the dash radio through all the coach speakers?

Thanks,

Hans

1. (ours) The light inside the wardrobe has a switch on the light fixture. Only way to turn it on is to reach in and flip the rocker switch.

2. I believe there is a way to play the dash radio through all the coach speakers....Ours is tucked away for winter right now so I cant confirm that this is correct. So I better hold off answering
