I was very glad to see the article on the 2007 MDDS in this months FMCA Journal. WRV can use all the publicity it can get. The write up is good let's hope it generates added interest in our coaches and WRV has an opportunity to expand its dealer and support network. I believe the coach is great and you can see that once you get through the "debug" year and have a chance to look back.

Additionally, read on page 59 "Tiffin Introduces In-House Chassis". It apppears Tiffin is going with WRV's proven design. "The chassis, which has a gross vehicle weight rating of 35,600 pounds and gross combination weight rating of 45,000 pounds, is built on a raised-rail HUCK-BOLTED frame with low profile engine mounting and features a 55 degree wheel cut".

Tiffin has made a major move in using the century old huck bolt fasteners. They are an excellent fastener. It would be nice to see them move up to the 60 degree wheel radius cut. and certainly the raised rail is anything but new but an excellect conception. Some of the new units coming out with the low & dropped engine styles will certainly give all of us more room and many more options.

I talked to Gary Jones at the Redman FMCA. He told me he was building a chassis for Tiffin Motor homes that included a tag axe and independent front axle.
