New (to me) Damon Challenger

1999 Model 330.... Chevy chassis set up. Well kept unit. Not very quick and certainly not fast up steep hills... but.... it goes...











Oh... as you can see I am not new around here, But have not had an RV for a few years now and somewhere along the lines lost any post count I had. Was not much even then. I was a Tag a Longer then.

Well I had driven some V10 fords before this so was a bit spoiled I guess. But... the wife got in this one and proclaimed "this is the one" and so... what ya going to do? I drove it and my test route includes an atypically (but not rare) steep hill. Was not prepared for that much drop off so I failed to prepare the MH for it. I can see it will do it but you gotta know its coming. I did manage to get it to drop down and give me 20 though.. But there is a noticeable let off between the V10 and the 8.1s and this old 454 thats for sure. Actually I think its more my style come to think of it.
