I'm pretty pleased with our camping experience earlier this week so I thought I'd give Winnebago a compliment. We got our 2005 Sightseer Workhorse Chassis about a year ago and have been enjoying it a lot. However, earlier this week we nearly canceled our planned 4-day trip because the temperatures were 101-degrees and our destination was 200 miles away.
I was nervous: would the Sightseer stay cool on the drive over? would we be comfortable while there? would we have engine failure due to the temperature? would we have some structrural failure at these temperatures?

Bottom line, Sightseer handled the 101 degrees perfectly. We ran the generator and the coach-air kept our interior at 75 degrees while the outside ambient was between 98 and 101. Didn't need to use the panel air much. Sightseer had no problems at all handling 3 hours of 60mph as the thermometer pushed 100. I was impressed! Nights were no problem either, the A/C kept us real comfortable as we camped under some large, shady, trees.
Thank you Winnebago! Your Sightseer is doing just great for us!
