With a shorter wheelbase, it is much more maneuverable than a DP. To each his own!

Our first coach was a 38' DP, our '43 DP (that we have now) is way more maneuverable. So does that mean my DP is more maneuverable than a DP?

Nothing like a self appointed forum moderator after only 3 days as a member under that name.. But if I must explain my post further.. I know she was asking about a Discovery (but I don't own a Discovery so I can not comment on that). But, she also said her husband wanted a DP and that she was comfortable with the gas rig. I do own a DP and I can share what I think about purchasing a DP if its ok with you...

Wow, some of you DP guys are touchy! I said a shorter wheelbase is more maneuverable, which it is. I think DP's are great, especially in longer units. But to say that there are absolutely no tradeoffs in picking a DP over a gasser is ridiculous.

I wasn't being touchy, I was making a point about not all DP are the same. I did so by giving a real life, personal example.

You would be very surprised at how maneuverable these coaches are. Making a blanket statement about something one has limited knowledge of is why threads like this go on and on.
