Just took a quick look at the "all new 2006 Adventurer". All new it isn't, but, there are some new things.

First and most obvious, is more ceiling height. I'd guess it's an official 7', vs. 6'8" of before. It does make a noticable difference inside. Larger (taller) slide too. They get bigger windows which is quite nice. The 37B we toured was 12'3" tall to the top of the ladder. 2004 literature says it was 11'7", quite a bit shorter. Don't know any details really.

Also new are the front and rear caps. Had to do them for the new height.

Not much else popped as new. There is a powered fantastic vent in the galley now, probably to go with the higher ceiling. Not too familiar with a 37B to notice anything else.

New literature and pricing was not available.

It is interesting that Winnie is apparently jumping on the "high ceiling" bandwagon. The See Ya's with the high ceiling were the "first kid on the block." Then Newmar came out with the Northern Star in direct competition to the See Ya and it was a flop. Newmar pulled the plug on the Northern Star recently.

I would be concerned with the additional height - as it is, I figure my Horizon with the oppressively low ceilings and King Dome is about 13' tall. Plenty tall! I have already played a tune on the CB antenna

I would be leary of the extra height along with the 22.5" tires. It is going to be top heavy. The gassers don't have the luxury of air ride systems where the ride height is closer to the ground, instead they appear to be a jacked up 4x4 model. I believe there will be additional handling issues. Will just have to wait and see!

Handling and wind shift from the extra height could be a problem that time will tell. The interior color scheme is something that time doesn't have to wait for. Designed by my grandmother. Gaudy, dark, ugly. Hope Itasca has more common sense when their line comes out.

Well anything over 12' is out of our market. Garage door is only 12'2". Have been looking at new MH's. But decided what we have will work fine for sometime.
