New us here in MS

Well we took the plunge. UP graded to a used Monaco.
Have traveled all states west of the MS river in a Fithwheel. Always talked about a MH so guess we are there. There is a difference driving a 45 ft MH vs a 3500 sr Chevy, but hope we have as much fun.
look foward to hooking a Jeep behind this baby and heading out again this spring, (after the snow melts). 525 HP, can't wait to we get to the mountians. HHHUUURRAA

Yes there is a difference, Much smoother ride.. NOTE: if you find yourself quickly tireing when driving the MoHo, there are a few improvements many benefit from I will list

Sway bar.. Sway is side to side rocking, Like people at a rock concert swaying side to side,, My Workhorse came well eqipped, some don't.

Trac bar, .. If the tail is wagging like a dog's EVEN THOUGH the wheels are goign straight down the road, YOU are going to compensate,, alas this makes it worse.. A rack Bar or two (Rear and front) lock the chassis over the axle. So it very simply can not wag like that.

Steering stablizers... Try to keep you on the "Straight and narrow" and trust me, when your vehicle is six inches wider than what is allowed for all but a few types of vehcles.. NARROW the road very clearly is.
