Potential Venetian Buyers

We're Venetian owners and have a thought we'ld like to share with anyone considering the purchasing a new one. All the 2019 Venetians now come with the ISL400 engine. One of the bigger differenced between the Tuscany and the Venetian in the Tuscany has the ISL 450 engine. We were able to get our 400 undated to the 450 last year at the Thor Diesel Rally by the Cummins representatives there. With the size of our coach it was a worthwhile upgrade. If I was negotiating for a new Venetian I would add the power upgrade to the mix. Our cost was just less than 1K. If your a member of the Cummins club that discount should apply to an upgrade. I'ld be very surprised at a dealer balking on a deal over a 1k difference. I can't guarantee every coach is upgradable but if the cooresponding Tuscany is it'd a pretty good bet.

I really think this is good sound advice. We have traveled 50 plus mountain passes and a lot of large hills. The 450hp for the 40-45 foot coaches seems to be a good fit. It truly would be worth the upgrade and the best time to get it done.
