Roadmaster Chassis Rally in Eugene, OR

I signed up for the Roadmaster Chassis Pre-Rally in Eugene.
July 31 - August 2 http://www.rv-chassis.com/rally4.pdf


Schedule - http://www.rv-chassis.com/RallySchedule.pdf

Sponsored by Source Engineering, Cummins NW, Roadmaster, Pacific Power Products (Allison, Detriot) and New Coaches provided by Guaranty.

Lots of technical seminars and hands-on checking of my chassis by their techs. Includes breakfast, BBQ lunch and beer keg party.

It should be a lot easier to get one-on-one help than in Salem or Redmond.

Who is going to join me?

Luke

Lukea,

Unfortunately that is to far for us to make so please keep us posted on the Ride Enhancement Kit for the Diplomat.

Thanks,

Bob

Yes it does, Bob! The kit will include new proprietary “Custom Tuned” Bilstein shock absorbers and a complete specially designed anti-sway bar package along with a steering stabilizer. It will be available only through Source Engineering and their Authorized Dealers.

This is one reason why I really would like to see as many folks go to this rally. I think this will be the best place to get all the inside scoop on this new system -and what better place to learn about this system than from the designers/manufacturers!!

This does not seem like the components I would expect with a ride enhancement kit. The only thing I see that would improve the ride are the shocks and we already have Koni's and the steering stabilizer. I was expecting a better air bag or something like that.

Bob
Bob (nodine) ...the shocks have been tuned to work with those bags - which is why I believe they are not changing out the bags. (At least that is how I interpreted the conversation.) I will have to ask Sacs if that is how he understood it also.

I am now begging any of you that if you are thinking of going to please sign up ASAP. I think we need somewhere around 5 more or so coaches to sign up or this Rally will be canceled. The information will be great and I think it will be a much more personal rally.

Thanks MM, we got home from out trip yesterday afternoon and found our Internet not working. I just got a new cable modem from Comcast and trying to get things back up as I type. We hope someone tries those new shocks that has already tried Koni or we will not have a clue if they will improve over the Koni's. Drop to much money in the Koni's to jump in to fast. I want to know the change would be worth the cost and trouble.

Bob

There is a good chance that the rally will be a go!
Rumors are out there of many others planning on showing up. Can any of you that may show up-for even one day PLEASE contact Jim or Scott at:
Source Engineering
PHONE: (541) 935-0308

They will need to have an idea of how many folks will actually show so they are properly prepared.

Thank you for your cooperation!
