We have a new 2008 Tour and when I first pulled into our site next to some good friend's who have a very high line "brand x" coach, he came over to check it out. As I prepared to level the coach the first time, he yelled -- STOP! Your front wheels are not quite straight! I was not sure what was going on until he told me that when his coach leveled by first dumping air and lowering, the front wheel was not exactly straight and the coach fender hit the wheel to the tune of $4,000 in repairs!

We quickly checked my Tour and lo and behold, Winnie has a cutout above the wheel to address just such a situation! Cool! My friend said that his coach (which cost twice as much as my Tour) was not nearly as well engineered with that issue and other items.

Thanks Winnebago!

Just goes to show that more money does not always get better quality.
