Hi all just sayin hello, not rv'in. right now, but will be soon.
(a little back ground) I used to have '95 Bounder 32' gas, loved it, but had to get rid of it do to loss of job. I am now looking at
diesel pushers as i have need of something to stay in when we are on the road. It will just be the DW and me. We both do contract computor cad design work, (Auto, air-craft,etc.), and could be at a CG for any where from 6mths. to a
year or more. We beleive it would be better to live in rv then hotels or apt's.

I have been looking at Newmar ksdp's. and Fleetwood revolution le, 39-40'. took both for
test ride really liked the Newmar with 400 cummins. It was preaty quick of the line and
accellerated good also. the fleetwood was slugish, really had to push on gas to get it to
move. the Newmar tracked nice down the road
did'nt. have to do alot of correcting. The
Rev. on the other hand was allmost as wandery as
my old Bounder. Any input on choice, brand,eng.
etc. would greatly be aprreciated. thanks Ron G .

Welcome Newmanator to irv2
I would be partial to the Newmar have my third in driveway now. The fit and finish will be one of the best and a DP would make it a pleasure to own.
Drop down to the Newmar forum have some KSDP owners there to help you out with any questions.
Enjoy all the forums on irv2 and do post often.

Newmanator, welcome to iRV2.com. I think the Newmar would give you a more dependable unit in the long run. Take your time as there are some good deals out there and good luck in the hunt. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. Take care and stay safe.

Newmanator...
Welcome to IRV2... but I am going to throw something different out there... have you looked at a Monaco? DH and I have previously owned 2 Bounder (89 & 94) so we know what you are talking about with your old one...but we found that after looking around that the Diplomat really fit our needs...and we have had almost non-existant problems ...
