Under the rear of the 07-08 Outlaw with Workhorse chassis you'll find there is space under the garage to add another separate fuel tank to carry premium fuel. It would require some fabrication of hooking up the fuel station.
One could simply use a hitch rack on the back to transport premium fuel and unload when destination is reached.

This (above) is correct. And if plumbed correctly, could fix the small hose bottleneck feed from the tank to the fueling station pump.

Also, did you notice that the Workhorse fuel tank has a capped-off opening and appropriate hole in the frame on the passenger side that could be used to add a second filler pipe for fueling on either side if desired. That's on my To-Do list since there always seems to be longer lines for filling-up on the driver's side.

Safe travels

Hello to all.
Special thanks to all who have contributed to this thread. I'm new to the RV world, but have been doing my homework. I'm the proud owner of a 2014 KTM 1290 Super Duke, and w/ full race kit it likes 93-108 octane! Focker, go test ride one of these "Motorcycles of the year" Being a V-twin lover.. just don't pin the throttle back!


I'm in the market for either the Outlaw 37LS or Newmar 3620. Thanks for your input Steve. The Outlaw is at the top of the list! Here is a used (sadly sitting in dirt for 18 months and looks terrible now) Outlaw which has the Vortec V-8: 06 Damon Outlaw I drove it and it was a rattle trap. Very "cheap" feeling.. like $35K cheap.. but NOT.


There is also a 2012 Newmar 3920 LOADED about 3 miles from my home, 30,000 miles, needs tires, best price $105K. Too much from what I can tell.
Newmar 2012 3920 Class A Canyon Star


I'll be checking in daily, hopefully I'll be "on the road by years end"
Thanks again!
Ed

Best luck to Ed. That is a very wide choice - '07 Outlaw vs. '12 CS3920.

The CS will easily win a comparison battle with exterior paint, new electronics (the Outlaw's TV's will be pre-DTV conversion), 5 years less wear and tear, and lots of other little differences. But tires are rather expensive and 30k miles in 2 years could mean a lot of use.

The Outlaw will win for the Chassis (sorry to those with the Ford, but there is no replacement for displacement) with 8.1L V8 and Allison 6 speed vs. 6.8L V10 and Ford 5 speed (i.e. NADA gives $3,500 extra for the Workhorse). But tires could also be needed due to age.

And there is the near $40,000 difference.

Which ever is picked, hope you come share all about it.

Hi Ed!
I have drank the KTM soup and I like it so I better not get on one of those Super Dukes or I will probably buy it! Next bike for our garage is the BMW 1000RR that my wife is buying.

I actually like that Canyon Star you have posted, they are a nicely finished rig in the salon.

Keep us posted.

As far as comparing the two coaches.. there is no comparison. I've talked to MHS in Alvarado, Tx this a.m. about the used 2014. Price is not nego. and they want to offer low wholesale for my 2011 Silverado. Has anyone dealt with Day Bros. in London, Ky.?
They have a 2015 Outlaw 37LS and offer a good over the phone price. Also I'm curious about Tom Johnson's dealerships in western N.C. There website/campground are very inviting. High MSRP's but otherwise ??? Focker, tell wife, it's all about character! Nothing like a big V-twin.. especially a dyno'd 191 h.p. 405 lb. one! BTW, I'm a exec. recruiter and hope to do a lot of traveling to meet my national clients.. Thanks again for the responses..




Sincerely,
Ed

Well Ed, if you buy one from Alvarado TX and need someone to bring it to SC let me know. I live 50 miles north of that Dealership and I'm retired.
So I'v e got time!
I have a Tenere 1200 and would love a trip to see my Buddy in West Georgia. Be happy to drive your Coach to SC for you, with my bike in the back, and then ride home after I wear out my welcome at my friends place.

I've been driving Motor Coaches for years and am handy with keeping them running too!

PM me if I can help you out!

All I ask is you pay for the fuel it uses to get it to you!

Curtis, Thanks for the offer and I'll keep that in mind. I may be trading in a Chevy P/U so I may have to drive there.. I'll keep this in mind.. Again thanks for offering! Focker, Asinine? I thought began with "Here.. hold my beer"
More to come..
Mr. Ed

Linked from an iRV2 member here:
GMC Motorhomes
Because I'm still looking for a Toy Hauler version of the old GMC RV like mentioned here:
Class "A" Toyhaulers

Anyway...a 1995 Airstream 325 Classic Front Engine Diesel...

Thanks Tim,
Great find!

I think that is a DIY - but I know there were a limited number of GMC Toy Haulers made by a shop (maybe aftermarket?) 'cuz I saw one at the big show they used to have in Oakland called the Autorama...it was all finished inside.

Yes, DIY, second link has pictures of the build.

Factory "toyhauler". Hmmm. But that does ring a bell. They did go after the commercial market with the "Transmode".

More google image searching....
