I'm going to buy a 2008 Voyage 38J if the dealer and I can see eye to eye on the price. Just wondering if a front end alignment would be a good idea before putting it on the road. It's on a Workhorse chassis

Certainly wouldn't hurt to at least have the alignment checked.

No need to wonder, the reccommendation that has been in every RV Manual I have ever read is to get it realigned before you go on your first trip. Your new Winnebago comes aligned from the factory as an empty rig however once you load it up you need to get it realigned to match the new weight distribution and load you will be traveling with.

Well the manual suggests it but Kudo's to Workhorse for a job well done. I had mine re-aligned and it was only 1/32 out - acceptable and no problem.
