First, what year is your Endeavor?

Second, I cannot believe no one has steered you to the thread that will solve the poor handling, white knuckle monster, that my 08 Endeavor was.

Some of these roadmaster chassis are nothing short of dangerous. There is a sticky (permanent thread) on the Monaco section that will give you a couple of days reading. The fix is not difficult but the tremendous effort by the group to come up with solutions is just amazing.

On the other hand, I have 5 fingers.

Same here. With the RR10R sometimes I think it drives itself, no crosswind, passing trucks or other issues. It's easier to drive and with a smoother ride than anything I've ever driven and I haven't added or modified anything.

Yep. And I can't figure out why the extra lenght is so intimidating, even scary, to some folks. I find my 42 easier to drive, corner and park than any of the shorter rigs.

I HAD A 2003 Dutch Star with a Spartan Chassis for about 4 years and traded for a 2009 Newmar 43 ft w/tag and comfort drive. The difference was drastic, the tag allows for appreciably more braking, less porpoising. The biggest change was comfort drive(absolutely amazing) no more concerns with driving in crosswinds, much easier to drive. Would never buy another one without it.

Have driven both

We have a 41 DP single but I have driven a 43 DP tag. I always thought a tag would be better in the wind etc. After driving one I saw no difference in the handling. At least not enough for me to go to a tag but that's just me.

JMHO, but I'd never let a tag vs no tag be the deciding factor in a MH purchase. Find the floor plan you like that has adequate storage and amenities. If it has a tag fine, if no tag fine.
