Thumbs up

Ok Im jealous. Cant say I'm a fan of the Volvo though. I would have gone with a Peterbuilt or Kenworth. 550 cummins is a good choice. No chance of running out of power with that big boy. What transmission did you go with?

Hi there! I just heard back from them today about an idea I had. I am going to give them a call within the next day or so. Any suggestions or ideas for me??

I'm still new to replying online to these posts... We went with the Eaton Fuller 13 speed ultra shift plus transmission... (remember I'm the wife just regurgitating my notes, lol)

Ok, so we didn't love the power of either of the diesel pushers that we owned. They just weren't made to do what we do with them. We went with Showhauler because they built what we wanted, how we need it, with only the fluff that we wanted... They are like working with friends. They are small and they care big time about the quality of what they put out. Their reputation is top-notch. Ask Lonnie about the Showhauler that went off the road into sand and fell over... I will be able to tell you more by next Friday because we will have picked up our ShowHauler and have taken it from PA to FL. Hopefully before this next mother of a storm hits us up here in PA...

I think I saw you e/b on I80/90 yesterday? We left Cleveland at about 0900 hrs. heading to MN. I don't remember where but I spotted a T/C going the other way and it sure looked a lot like yours. I think it had some corner trim that I don't see on yours though. Maybe wrong one.

You are sure going to love the T/C platform if you owned a couple D/P's.

Awe, it wasn't us. We were straight i70 from Ohio to PA. My husband said he can't get over the power and the smoothness. I can't wait to ride in it, but too busy loading up today. (Plus currently snowed in) we head south Wednesday and plan to post along the way... thanks for replying. Hope to see you out there!
