I like the long hauls and Im not up to that riding an F53, but the Bay Star is a pleasant, even charming, little coach and completely sold me on Newmar.
I got a kick out of this as we are also like kids on Christmas Day. We went through a similar process of looking for a used DS. After visiting the factory for a tour and asking some questions we realized we were looking for features that were unavailable on our preferred Model. We even weighed a used 37’ but it missed a couple key features. We are going from BS...3124 but to a DS 4054 spartan chassis with a tag. Ours goes into production after Christmas and we are doing Factory pickup March 16. Are you doing Factory Pickup? We learned a lot from the Facebook group as well. There’s a newmar one and a Dutchstar one so I’m sure there’s a Newair one too. Wouldn’t it be cool if we were picking up at the same time?

Who was that guy that used to be on here and publish all those little articles/studies? He did one on CD and "somehow" disproved that it really helped in windy conditions or something like that.

Did he work for Tiffin?

Like it or not the CD works. Just be going along on a calm day at about 65 and have one of those Pig haulers with that big Peterbilt or Kenworth blow by you at 80. Then tell me it didn't do anything. In the pigs eye.

Never thought of that, maybe he did?

Just can't think of his screen name. He claimed he drove a few different coaches with CD over a year period and disputed it "really" worked. Got everyone's panties in a wad.

The only thing I understand about CD is that tomorrow when I have to hook up and leave this CG at 4am and drive 605 miles that when I get to SW Florida at the end of the day I won't feel like someone just beat the crap out of me. It works for me and I certainly do not want a coach without it.

Actually had a little 10-15mph wind out of the WNW so it wasn't bad. Didn't help my mpg though. With a lot of commercial traffic mixed in with some snowbird traffic my routine is to run right at 70 so that trucks are not constantly passing me and I am not constantly passing them.

But I can say that driving from 4am to 4:00pm (actually 11 hrs with time change) I felt really good.
