Thanks Calcruiser, It was interesting covering 600+ miles,  Next summer hopefully going up the West Coast up to Oregon and maybe to Seattle.  May I ask where in So Cal you are?  I'm in the Joshua Tree, Yucca Valley, CA area.

ON level roads the rpm is around 2.5, uphills I try to keep it at 3, maybe 3.5, but sometimes I need to push to 4.  Does this make sense?

Is it the 3.7 V6 gas engine or diesel? MPG please. Have you weighed it?
It is a gas engine, and I get around 11mpg, and I have to say, I don't baby it either.  LOL  65-72 mph of course depending on conditions.  I really like it.

That's typical in the RV industry.  They order the chassis up to a year in advance so they have them on hand.  Then the model year changes in September or October.   So 2019 chassis, built the RV in 2020 but it's a 2021 model.   My own was built in Dec 2014 on a 2014 chassis but it a 2015 model.

Congrats on your new RV!
Seems different but I get it about ordering things in advance especially now.  I think my vehicle registration says 2021.  Thank you.

 (cheer) Yes I own a TRX.  Bought it La Mesa RV in San Diego.  Ford Transit. Not an EcoBoost.  But we love it.   It also has a slideout on the driver's side.  II think there was a discussion sometime back but thought I would start one here.  It is confusing on year.  The engine booklet says 2019, the completion date on the coach says 2020, October. And I had to sign a form saying they were selling as a 2021.  Go figure,  my mistake for signing that.  But we still love.  So questions?  Ask away.   P.S. Happy Holidays. My first trip was over 6K on it.

HI again Hutch 42.  Thank you for weight numbers. My VIN says it's a 2019 Ford Transit. So question, how do I know how much weight I can put in the RV? aka, food, clothes, dogs, etc.? I only went by what was listed on the website for the weight, and that was probably for a 2021.  I"m learning. But I will definitely need to find out the "dry" weight of the RV and then how lbs I can add to it.

Thank you for the info Ron, being a rookie at weights, I have a question. Can anyone stop at a truck stop weigh station to get their RV weighed?  Is this a weigh station like on an interstate? Never done that but sounds like something I need to do.

Hi Hutch42.  We did get the slide-out model with sofa and dinette (La Mesa RV in San Diego). I stumbled across it, was looking for Class B but saw this one by accident. Loved it. So glad we did, makes all the difference. Just the two of us, and two dogs, I weighed everything, right at about 14,500. Includes about 12 gals fresh water tank, full tank of gas, full refrig, extra water, etc etc. I weighed the hoses, dumps stuff, clothes, you name it I weighed it, dog food, shoes, sheets, blankets, the two of us, the dogs, LOL  etc, etc.
Now driving through mountains, not too bad but around 52-55 mph. We tried to keep the rpm's around 4 - 4.5 when possible when going uphill. Took our time through the mountains. It shifted a lot when climbing, but I figured that would happen, so adjusted for it.  Looking back at my purchase, I was asked to sign that I was getting a 2021, didn't dawn on me why I was asked to sign this until later,  but in reality, I think we got a 2020, the engine booklet says the engine is a 2019 (This is when I got upset) I called my brother who worked for GM (Not Ford) he said companies like that buy engines in bulk, so to speak, and that is why it probably is a 2019. Live and learn.  Grrr on my part. But I read when it was built and it was early 2020.  I thought I was getting the turbo with a 10 speed, but totally my fault for not checking closer. I have the Ford  E350HD. A stupid mistake I'm sure, but when I looked up the pricing the newer engine was 10K more.   I like what we have and now don't mind a bit. The driving is great, did I feel trucks?  Sometimes but not bad at all. Sometimes they pushed us when passing but not all the time. I love how easy it is to drive and maneuver. Even made some u-turns.  LOL 
Oh, I had a 2007 Fleetwood Jamboree 31M before. No comparison. The PHoenix TRX drives so much easier and nicer.  Two reasons, newer, and also a lot smaller.

Congratulations on a very big trip !    Just curious,  how did you find the campground availability to be ?      Reservations  ?      Drive up ?

Hi I made reservations ahead of time, found campgrounds pretty full, but most were able to accommodate.  I tried to stay at KOA's most of the time.  Did stay at a couple of privately owned campgrounds.  Weekends seemed to be the hardest and also in popular areas such as the Grand Canyon, and Virginia.

No I was not.  The reason we purchased this model was because we did not want to tow a vehicle anymore.  Did that before. Thank you.
