Great looking coach, Gas it up and head out, have fun!!!!

Same exterior color as ours, but we have the brown interior and as Ray stated the extra window is up front We wish it would be in the back like yours.


1. Have it weight at all four corners with a full tank of gas and full of 80 gals of water. If you have all the (STuff) already put that in also.
With all the pass in position weight it at a CAT scale for about $10.00.

First time you will get the front and back axles. Then around again with the driver side front and back axle on the scale pads leaving the pass side off. You can take the driver side weight and subtract from the total front and obtain the pass side corner weight.

My 2009 34SBD came in at 3480lb DF 3340PF
6540lb DR 6620PR
for a total of 19,980 lbs - 22,000 total = 2020 lbs of Stuff.
This is not a lot when we add all the food and cloths, rock collection, stuff, Tools,then more stuff ect.

2. Air Pressure from the Michelin man says 75 psi on all the tires, I run 83 psi. with good wear so far.

My MH handles neutral one finger, this is with the Toad on the back.
with the Toad I did notice less of the PUSH from Semi Trucks passing then without the Toad.

I have since loaded my front pass side compartment with all the heavy things to help balance the front side to side .

I am thinking of adding the rear track bar that OMEYS has a write up on.
This can be made for ($60.00) See his web sitelink of IRV2 ,great site.
My Wife say the MH handle like a pickup truck/ Gvan.
