First drive impressions, 2007 Allure 470

After five days at the dealer doing the deal, coach prep, tweaks and moving stuff (too much stuff ) from our 2002 Journey to the Allure, we drove from Concord, NC to Myrtle Beach, SC today. Final tweak was dealer replacing the clothes dryer with a new dryer this AM (dryer was noisy and would intermittently just quit).

While I realize we were in the 'flat lands,' we had a strong quartering wind for most of the drive. While I cannot say I never felt the wind gusts, driving this tag axle coach vs. my former 36' Freightliner was night-and-day different. Really a nice, solid ride. Only noise was what I think are some squeaking slide seals on the left LR slide. I will be treating them with silicone since they appear dry.

If the VMSpc is fairly accurate, my average fuel mileage was 8.2 by the time we got to Myrtle Beach. Much of the drive was 60 - 65 mph. If this is indicative of the kind of mileage I might get with this 425hp Cummins, I will be thrilled. Average with my 330 CAT was 7.5.

While at the dealer's RV park last night, met a couple that had made an offer on a 2005 Intrigue. I think it had a big CAT engine. We both noted after poking around in compartments, looking under the bed, etc. that these CC's seem to be really built solidly.

I wondered if that was the unit at TJ's. You have a nice coach!

We looked at a couple of CC's and were impressed with the quality. Enjoy the new ride!
